Vaterra Brushed Electric 1/10th 1972 Ford Bronco 4x4 Ascender RC Rock Crawler - RTR
Vaterra 1/10th Scale 1972 Ford Bronco 4x4 Ascender - RTR
The brainchild of the same visionaries behind the Mustang, the first generation Bronco featured a unique chassis engineered to drive boldly where the pavement ends. You’ll find that same spirit of off-road adventure in this licensed, 1/10-scale recreation of the ’72 Bronco. Its proven Ascender™ chassis features stamped-steel ladder frames, over 45° of steering travel and one of the most capable off-road suspensions available.
The chassis rides on a 3-link panhard bar front suspension and a 4-link rear suspension. All suspension links are machined from aluminium to handle the most punishing conditions. Oil-filled, threaded shocks soak up the bumps and give you a variety of pre-load settings. The steel, C-channel frames form the backbone of the Ascender™ chassis and give you four wheelbase lengths to choose from: 314mm (12.36 in), 302mm (11.9 in), 290mm (11.4 in) and 278mm (10.95 in). Markings on the frames make adjustment easy.
The single-speed, metal gear transmission is engineered for steep inclines and rugged, rocky terrain. Those seeking a broader range of speed and climb performance can upgrade to the optional two-speed transmission (sold separately).
The battery tray floats over the front axle and is designed to accept 96mm shorty packs. Placing the weight of the battery over the front axle gives the front tyres extra traction when crawling over rocks and tackling steep inclines.
Front bumper features moulded tow hooks. An opening on the front bumper leaves plenty of room for a winch cable. If you want to try different 1/10-scale bodies later on, the bumper can be moved to accommodate most of them.
| HEAVY DUTY SUSPENSION
The chassis rides on a 3-link panhard bar front suspension and a 4-link rear suspension. All suspension links are machined from aluminum to handle the most punishing conditions. Oil-filled, threaded shocks soak up the bumps and give you a variety of pre-load settings.
| WATERPROOF ELECTRONICS
The truck is equipped with a waterproof receiver, speed control and steering servo for driving in the real world, where things get wet and the weather is often less than perfect.
| SUPER SWAMPER TYRES
The realistic drivetrain and suspension are complemented by licensed replicas of Interco TSL SX Super Swamper tyres. Like the full-scale versions, their tread pattern and compound provide excellent grip at almost any angle.
