This rock crawler includes C-channel frame rails, low center of gravity battery tray, centrally mounted divorced transfer case, lockable slipper clutch, portal axles with metal gear covers, MOD-1 gears, machined aluminum spools, front CVAs, 32 rubber-sealed ball bearings, threaded aluminum shocks, 47º steering blocks with proper Ackerman, Panhard bar, LED-ready bumpers, winch-ready front bumper, and frame mounted floor pans.
Portal axles provide more ground clearance without needing bigger tires. On the Gen8 V2 International Scout II much of the gear reduction happens inside the portal axles, which means less chassis torque twist than traditional axle shaft driven rock crawlers. The portal axles provide 54.5mm of ground clearance and include metal gear covers, metal wheel hexes, and CNC machined spools.
This RTR crawler features a highly detailed fully licensed International Scout II body, hard plastic grill, plastic folding mirrors, molded inner and outer fenders, shackle mount front bumper, receiver hitch ready rear bumper, and plastic rock sliders.
The Gen8 V2 International Scout II uses an innovative dual design slipper clutch, which allows the driver to set the slipper clutch, or completely lock it out. The GEN8 V2 accepts a wide range of pinion gears from 9T all the way up to 23T and includes a 32P spur gear. This allows a gearing ratio of 28.12 to 71.85. A sealed pinion and spur keeps the gears safe from rocks and debris. Heavy duty Mod 1 gears can be found in the transmission, transfer case, and portal axles. The Redcat Racing GEN8 features a front mounted motor and a divorced transfer case for competition inspired weight distribution.
