Description

Details

IMPORTANT - Please note the instructions and box of these models say they are 1/10th scale BUT they are actually 1/8th scale. If you check the dimensions you will see they are 1/8th scale and much bigger than 1/10th scale models. This is just a printing mistake and this can be verified by contacting the manufacturers directly.

This is an upgraded version of the standard Dune Buggy. You can see the standard version here.

This upgraded version comes with brushless setup including 3300KV brushless motor, 60A brushless ESC with fan assisted heat-sink and a 7.4V 2200mAh lithium polymer battery. The brushless setup gives a lot more power and speed as well as less maintenance of the motor. The Li-Po battery pack included is a big 7.4V 2200Mah which will give full power for longer compared to the standard Ni-MH version.

The radio equipment has also been upgraded to a wheel type 2.4GHz transmitter and receiver. The advantages are clear - no need for fiddling with crystals, range virtually as you can see, no interference from fellow drivers and the best of them all much more responsive precision steering!

The model comes fully assembled and ready to run so all you need is 4 x AAA batteries for the radio equipment.

  1. Fun & fast

    By Mark October 05, 2017

    Good fun and fast, recommend.

  2. Fast and fun, 1/8 built strong.

    By Tecnobaz August 08, 2014

    The car is great, the instructions not so, To get to the battery you remove 4 silver r-clips, 2 black ones and the head lights then 2 more silver ones to remove the driver/battery clamp. The on/off switch is behind the driver and quite difficult to get at.
    Stupidly fast rides over anything in its way. Battery life better than expected.
    Overall very happy, I have purchased a LI-po balance lead extension and now leave the battery in the car saves all the messing around.

  3. very good

    By karl March 12, 2013

    Again this is my first rc from nitrotek and I can say the staff were very helpful when I collected. The buggy is ridiculously fast and is going to take me a while to learn. But great fun and cant wait to take it out more and test what can really do. LED lighting is a bonus feature which helps when you want to take a spin at night.
    I will be definitely buying feom nitrotek again in the near future and would recommend them to anyone wanting a great rc vehicle.

  4. Very good for the price!

    By Ewan March 07, 2013

    This is the first RC that i bought from Nitrotek.co.uk, and it certainly will not be the last! Although the battery life is rather short, this is more than made up for with the insane amount of power from the brushless motor. I would absolutely recomend this great looking, stupidly fast 1/8 scale buggy to anyone who is considering buying one!
