Bigfoot is a unique form of racing car in United States, which began with the popular pick-up off-road mud racing in the 1980s. This was originally an activity for car enthusiasts to entertain themselves. Off-road driving and dragging usually determined the outcome. The bigger the tires, the better for driving in mud and swamps, and the higher the mud splash, the more excited the audience gets.
Today’s Bigfoot races are usually held in gyms and are divided into three parts: racing, two-wheel tricks, and freestyle performances.
The 1/24 scale Bigfoot model-MAX SMASHER from FMS is build on the FCX24 chassis. The huge hollow tires provide excellent shock absorption. The two-speed gearbox, controlled by the third channel, can not only provide strong torque but also support high-speed off-road driving.
The front and rear axles of the Bigfoot model-MAX SMASHER are equipped with planetary gear differentials by default, which is conducive to high-speed off-road driving, posture simulation, and outstanding cornering performance. Meanwhile, straight axle parts without differentials are also provided for users to replace themselves. When the straight axle parts are replaced, the differential function of the front and rear axles is lost but its climbing ability is completely released, and no matter whether it is rocks or mud, it can pass through powerfully. Of course, the hybrid solution of installing a straight axle on the rear axle and installing a differential on the front axle is also an option, which not only enables high-speed off-roading but also retains a certain climbing ability.
The portal axle is a major feature of Bigfoot model-MAX SMASHER’s chassis. With huge tires, the ground clearance of the chassis is further increased, and the vehicle’s passability is further enhanced. Driven by the sheer power of the 130 motor, it can raise its head and tilt its tail. The car body design restores the appearance of a first-generation American pickup truck. The exquisite stickers and an overabundance of electroplated parts bring us back to that crazy and bloody era.
