Product Information

A Classic Rock Crawler

One of the most popular 4WD cars of all time, the Chevrolet K5 Blazer now comes in an RC version, thanks to Vaterra. This 1/10-scale kit is your opportunity to build a Blazer to your specifications. What sets this truck apart from other rock crawlers is the inclusion of Vaterra's new Ascender chassis. This platform comes with stamped-steel C-channel ladder frames and an adjustable wheelbase with four lengths to choose from (314, 302, 290 and 278mm). There are markings on the frame to make adjustments easy. The chassis is equipped with 3-link panhard bar front suspension and 4-link rear suspension. All the suspension links in the Blazer are made from aluminium to make them very durable. The RC truck is also equipped with oil-filled, threaded shocks with a wide choice of pre-load settings.

Just like the Vaterra Halix, the Blazer can handle the toughest terrain. It offers a single-speed metal gear transmission, which can handle high-output motors. The battery tray in this car floats over the front axle and can accept 96mm short packs. By positioning the battery weight over the front of the axle, you will find that the front tyres gain extra traction when scrambling over rocks and tackling steep ascents. This Vaterra car comes with crawler-style bumpers and rock slider side bars. The front and rear bumpers come with moulded tow hooks and there is an opening in the front for a winch cable. You can also move the side bars and bumpers to accomodate different 1/10-scale bodies.

Rock Ready RC Car

This Vaterra truck is equipped with strong CV front shafts that allow up to 45 degrees of steering angle. The clear polycarbonate body is inspired by one of the most popular Blazers ever built (please note that the body does not come painted). Some of the scale features include an injection-moulded grille with headlights and Chevrolet badging. Decal stickers are also included in the box. The truck also comes with licensed replicas of Interco TSL SX Super Swamper tyres, giving you great grip at almost any angle. The Vaterra Blazer is an outstanding off-road truck that was born for adventure. Order yours now.
