If you are ready to take the electric RC hobby to the next level with a proper RC buggy then this is the model to go for. No longer do you have to pay hundreds of pounds if you want a fully built model that features all the technology of any top spec buggy. This is a high spec model that not only is high quality and pro built but is also highly upgradeable. This model is not to be confused with the entry level RC cars, this is a proper RC hobby racing machine!
Aluminium centre drive shaft, high spec electronic speed control, aluminium capped oil filled shocks, performance differentials, aluminium radio tray and much more, the XSTR is in a league of it's own Now supplied with 2.4G radio gear this model represents amazing value for money!
As standard the XSTR comes with a high precision 540 motor, HSP speed controller and 7.2V 1800mah Tamiya type battery pack. This setup gives more than enough power and speed for any serious racer but if you are the kind of person that likes to take things to the extreme then you can upgrade your model with a brushless kit. With the brushless motor, ESC and Li-po battery the truck will go ridiculously quick and will take some real skill to control. You can add these upgrades at the bottom but please note they will not come fitted so you will need to fit yourself.
1:10th SCALE MODEL
This 1:10th scale RC buggy measures in at 410mm x 250mm x 160mm (length, width, height)
WATERPROOF SERVO & RECEIVER
This model has a waterproof servo and receiver to help protect the model if you hit a puddle or are racing on a wet track.
POWERFUL MOTOR SYSTEM
A fast 540 motor with aluminium heat sink to keep it cool and operating at its peak. The motor is connected to an electronic speed control that gives full proportional speed both in forward and reverse.
ALUMINIUM SHOCK TOWERS & OIL FILLED SHOCKS
Both the tension and angle of the shocks can be adjusted to suit your driving preference and terrain with these aluminium capped shocks that are connected to an aluminium shock tower.
ALUMINIUM CENTRAL DRIVE JOINT AND UPPER CHASSIS
This model comes with a strong aluminium central drive shaft that transfers the power from the rear to the front for the 4WD system. The aluminium upper chassis keeps the chassis from flexing for improved handling.
Specially treaded tyres give lots of grip off road and good speed on road.
A cool wing with vents keeps the back end down while minimizing wind resistance.
4WD DRIVE SYSTEM
This model has a 4 Wheel Drive system with a strong aluminium drive shaft evenly transferring the power from the rear to the front. The 4WD system gives better off road ability and better handling. These hobby grade RC cars also feature working front and rear differentials that further improves handling.

WHAT IS PRODUCT CODE AND PRICE FOR A NEW BRUSHED MOTOR FOR THIS CAR? THANKS ANDY
- Posted byon Monday, 22 October 2018Hello - thank you for your question. The motor SKU is H03011. This is £16.02.
If I buy two, can we race them or will they run on the same frequency?
- Posted byon Tuesday, 4 September 2018Hello - thank you for your question. Yes, you can race these at the same time as they run on seperate frequencies. I hope this helps you!
Hi.... Looking at this car for my son for Xmas. I have to put my hands up and say I have not got a clue what I am looking for. But this is the one I keep coming back to. What is the life expectancy when fully charged ? And what is the difference between brushed and brushless ? Thanks Baz
- Posted byon Monday, 20 August 2018Hello - thank you for your question. The battery life on this model can vary depending on whether you purchase the pro or standard version. The standard version lasts for approximtaley 10-15 mins however the pro version lasts 25 mins. The difference between a brushed and brushless version is that the brushless version is much more powerful and is much quicker than the brushed version. We would recommend the brushed version for a beginner. I hope this helps you!
There are 2 questions above that relate to the speed of this car. One answer says it runs at 20 - 25 mph and the other 12 - 13 mph. Which is it? Q1 - What is the standard speed for the brushed motor with standard battery? Q2 - Does the larger battery at 3000mah make it faster? Thanks
- Posted byon Monday, 4 December 2017
This model has a top speed of 20 - 25 mph depending on the surface.
A higher Mah battery increases the run time not the top speed.
How long until my order comes need it for the little boy for Xmas thank you.
- Posted byon Friday, 10 November 2017
If ordered before 1pm, we can dispatch on the same day and will arrive to most UK mainland addresses within 24/48 hours.
Hi, What battery pack would you suggest as an up grade to get longer running time, THANK YOU James
- Posted byon Monday, 9 October 2017
We would suggest the Ni-MH 7.2V 3000mAh battery. Please see the below link.
Sorry to sound dumb, but just to clarify, when you say Ready To Run (RTR), that means it comes - car, controller, servos, battery and charger?? Also, is it a 2 servo or 1 with an ESC? And while im asking, is it a complete built kit or do i need to build it?? Cheers
- Posted byon Monday, 2 October 2017
A model being RTR means that everything is supplied with the model to run it, without any additional purchases.
The only requirement is that the battery is charged before th first use.
This model is already build running on 1 servo - Steering servo - and a ESC.
Really like the look of this car and was considering as an xmas present, but 12-13mph seems staggeringly slow, when my sons 14.99 car from Argos does 10mph, was that a typo?
- Posted byon Friday, 7 July 2017
The XSTR brushed model can run up to 20-25mph.
We sell hobby grade products, which are designed to be upgrade with more powerful batteries, motors and parts over time.

- Posted byon Wednesday, 22 March 2017Hi,, Thank you for your question. It is 1/10th and is 4WD.

great buggyBy david December 17, 2013
its a must buy it really is, really fast for a stock buggy but yeah as most people say you'd better buy a bigger and better battery as 10-15 minutes play time just aint enough
Great FunBy R . G December 05, 2013
If you are looking for a fun and fast model to drive this is the one. The XSTR is very fun to drive but hard to handle. If you are looking for a longer run time i would get a higher standard battery pack.
ace carBy Ross D December 03, 2013
I got this car for christmas took it out for a spin a soon as i can it is really fast it goes fro about 15 mins out of one batteries.
I recommend to get some spare batteries to use at the same time or a upgrade.
