Maverick DesertWolf 1/8 RTR Brushless Electric Buggy - MV12901
From the minds at Maverick comes the awesome DesertWolf 4WD buggy, a fun, fast and durable car you can take anywhere! Using a modern & lightweight design and the most powerful electronics we can fit in the chassis, the DesertWolf has been created from the ground up for low weight, high power and maximum toughness. With the newest advances in racing-style suspension and super-strong materials, the DesertWolf is a no-compromise, extra-tough and extra-fast buggy that is equally at home at any bashing area or your local track.
The all-new Wolf range from Maverick merges the latest short course race buggy design, light weight and extra-powerful electronics to give you loads of fun! The DesertWolf is fitted with powerful electronics such as a 4000Kv brushless motor and waterproof 3S capable speed controller that combine to give you amazing acceleration and top speed!
The DesertWolf's durable 4WD shaft drivetrain is equipped with 3 diffs: one at the front, rear and middle of the chassis, all equipped with strong metal gears to handle the power from the motor. All of the drivetrain components rotate on sealed ball bearings, and the DesertWolf features universal driveshafts at the front for extra efficiency. A waterproof, 3S capable speed controller powers the 4000Kv brushless motor, and the receiver rests within a water-resistant box for protection from the elements.
The suspension has been designed from the ground up just for the Maverick Wolf series. It's derived from race-proven designs and made from the strongest material available, so it's tough and reliable on any type of terrain, whether you're blasting down a trail, hitting the jumps or even driving on a racetrack!
The DesertWolf definitely looks the part of a racing buggy, too - a large racing wing provides downforce at the rear, subtly anodized shock towers secure threaded shock absorbers in place and 7-spoke twist-style wheels are wrapped with chunky racing tires for supreme ground control. Topping off the DesertWolf is the world's first reversible racing buggy body! You can now choose to have a sleek traditional style buggy body with an aerodynamic cockpit or a modern cab-forward body for more front downforce - all you have to do is turn the body around to completely change the look of the car!

We do not recommend the use of RC cars in confined spaces or domestic environments.

These inexpensive items are engineered to fail first and are commonly available. In simple terms, accidental damage is not covered by the warranty.
