Brilliant LEDs cast more than enough light for running at night without placing a huge current demand on the battery.
Stamped-Steel Ladder Frames with Adjustable Wheelbase
C-channel frames form the backbone of the Ascender chassis and give you
four wheelbase lengths to choose from: 12.36 in (314mm), 11.9 in
(302mm), 11.4 in (290mm) and 10.95 in (278mm). Markings on the frames
make wheelbase adjustments easy.
Heavy Duty Suspension
chassis has been designed with a 3-link panhard bar front suspension
and a 4-link rear suspension. All suspension links are machined from
aluminum to handle the most punishing conditions. Oil-filled, threaded
shocks soak up the bumps and give you a variety of pre-load settings.
Metal Gear Transmission
In other vehicles, metal gear transmission is an upgrade. With the Ford F-100 Ascender, it comes standard.
single-speed metal gear transmission is engineered to handle
high-output power systems and brutal conditions. Those seeking a little
more flexibility for different types of terrain can upgrade to the
optional two-speed transmission, sold separately.
Floating Battery Tray
battery tray floats over the front axle and is designed to accept 96mm
shorty packs. Placing the weight of the battery over the front axle
gives the front tires extra traction when crawling over rocks and
tackling steep inclines.
Heavy Duty CV Front Shafts
with the rest of the drivetrain components, these have been designed to
handle the demands of high-output power systems and rugged terrain.
They also allow up to 45 degrees of steering angle – more than many
other trucks in this class.
Licensed Interco Super Swamper Tires
realistic drivetrain and suspension are complemented by licensed
replicas of Interco TSL SX Super Swamper® tires. Like the full-scale
versions, their tread pattern and compound provide excellent grip at
almost any angle.
Low Profile Axle Housings with One-Piece Metal Lockers
Thanks to the metal locker, the vehicle won't "diff" out when one wheel is under load. And because of its low profile, the locker and axle housing is smaller and provides more ground clearance.
Powerful Motor and Waterproof Electronics
potent Dynamite motor delivers all the torque you need to muscle over
rock piles and power through mud and brush. A waterproof receiver, speed
control and steering servo let you drive in the real world, where
things get wet and the weather is often less than perfect.
60-Amp LiPo Compatible Waterproof ESC
The Ford F-100 Ascender is LiPo compatible right out of the box and has a crawler mode that provides sweet drag break for steep inclines.
