redcat at las vegas event sema 2021

Last weekend SEMA 2021 has been held at the Las Vegas Convention. After over a year of pandemic it’s a real pleasure to see an event finally held fisically. Redcat Racing made a great job promoting our hobby allowing show-goers to see their RC models in action. It was the most crowded booth in the area. The rear of the booth featured a custom built interactive scale crawler course while the front of the booth included a scale lowrider boulevard.

The custom crawler course featured interactivity with the Redcat Gen8 V2 International Harvester Scout, 1:8 scale Marksman Trail Crawler, Everest Gen7 Sport, and the perfect Holiday gift, the Danchee Ridgerock 4WD 4WS offroad crawler. Participants could navigate the vehicles over realistic mountainous terrain which included steep inclines, declines and a wooden bridge.

FC Brigham of Redcat said “The Redcat portal axles are so true to scale that in 2019 an automotive school had purchased several of Redcat’s portal axles to use in their classrooms as teaching aids.”
