Known for its adventurous and heavy-hitting nature, the Ford Raptor is a fixture at off-road races around the world, including the famous Dakar Rally (the above picture shows Sue Mead and Darren Skilton competing in this very rally). As the image shows, the Raptor is built for extreme off-road competition. It is with that same spirit that Vaterra have created their very own RC Ford Raptor, pictured below:
Ever since Vaterra was launched in early-2013, they have always amazed us with their range of on- and off-road RC cars and trucks. It is only fitting that one year after they entered the stage that they continue to build on their solid foundation with the introduction of the Vaterra Ford Raptor. This pre-runner RC truck is tonnes of fun. With four wheel drivetrain, the Raptor has the ability to boldly tackle the terrain.
The Raptor RC truck is underpinned by Vaterra's durable V100 nylon composite chassis and comes ready-to-run with a Spektrum 2.4GHz radio system, 2S LiPo battery and charger. The included Dynamite electronics are all waterproof. Vaterra have also added a non-sensored brushless motor, allowing the truck to reach speeds of 90km/h with a 3S 30C LiPo battery.
The Vaterra Raptor features shaft-driven 4WD with solid metal gear differentials and has extra long suspension so you can take on the most extreme terrain. What's great about this off-road RC truck is that it comes completely ready-to-run. In the box, you will receive a Spektrum DX2E transmitter, waterproof ESC and a Dynamite 3300Kv 4-pole brushless motor. Featuring a fully-licensed Ford Raptor body, this electric RC truck means business. If you cannot wait to get your hands on one, visit Modelflight today to find out more.
