Conquer the dirt and mud with the Redcat Racing Vortex SS Desert Nitro RC Truck. This one of a kind RC nitro fueled truck boasts a durable polycarbonate crash resistant body, composite disc brakes and huge soft compound RC off road tread that will drive it through almost anything. It also features an air cleaner assembly composed of a heavy duty foam element to keep dirt, dust, and other debris out of its powerful nitro fueled 3.0cc SH-18 engine. A resilient 2.5mm thick aluminum alloy chassis protects the body from scrapes and other damage. The 4-wheel independent suspension, 4 oil filled aluminum bodied shocks and 2 speed transmission make this RC truck able to crawl over most things other RCs can't. So don't be afraid to get down and dirty with the Redcat Racing Vortex SS Desert Nitro RC Truck!
