Horizon Vaterra 1986 K-5 Chevrolet Blazer Ascender Ready-to-Run Offroad Truck VTR03014
In the world of scale RC off-road trucks, ‘close enough’ just won’t cut it. Bodies must look authentic and the chassis has to be able to handle anything a full-scale truck could. This ready-to-run, 1/10-scale version of a lifted Chevrolet® K-5 Blazer delivers all that and more. At the heart of its realistic off-road performance is the Vaterra® Ascender™ chassis. This innovative platform takes scaler technology to new heights with features like stamped-steel ladder frames, an adjustable wheelbase, a metal gear transmission and one of the most capable off-road suspensions available.
This 4WD juggernaut is based on the Vaterra® Ascender™ chassis – an incredibly scale off-road platform that is engineered for extreme off-road environments. It comes completely assembled and equipped with waterproof electronics so you can drive it anywhere a full-scale off-road truck would go.
The single-speed, metal gear transmission is engineered for steep inclines and rugged, rocky terrain. Those seeking a broader range of speed and climb performance can upgrade to the optional two-speed transmission, sold separately.
The front and rear bumpers feature molded tow hooks. An opening on the front bumper leaves plenty of room for a winch cable. If you want to try different 1/10-scale bodies later on, the side bars and bumpers can be moved to accommodate most of them.
As with the rest of the drivetrain components, these have been designed to handle rugged terrain. They also allow up to 45 degrees of steering angle – more than most other trucks in this class.
The painted, polycarbonate body is modeled after one of the most popular K-5 Blazers ever built. Scale touches include an injection-molded grille with headlight details and authentic Chevrolet badging. A set of detail stickers is also included.
The 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.
The 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.
The included radio system gives you the unbeatable signal security and responsiveness of Spektrum DSMR® 2.4GHz technology. The DX2E transmitter is compatible with any Spektrum surface receiver so you can use it with other RC vehicles as well.
