The Redcat International® Scout II Gen8 AXE Edition is the world's first Ready to Run (RTR) scale crawler with a brushless motor & ESC. Includes a HobbyWing XERUN sensored AXE system including a brushless motor and ESC, Reefs RC 422HD V2 metal gear waterproof servo, and Flysky GT5 6 channel radio.
The Gen8 AXE Edition has other enhancements over the standard Gen8 as well. These enhancements include a new convertible style body with full roll cage, a pair of plastic injected molded seats, dashboard, steering wheel and gear shifts; plus an optional spare tire mount.
The new heavy duty axles, stronger portal gears, flat bottom skid plate, stronger plastic axle housings and steel transmission gears are also included to make the Gen8 AXE Edition stronger than ever.
The Gen8 AXE Edition is a highly competitive rock crawler that includes many performance features such as: C-channel frame rails, low center of gravity battery tray, centrally mounted divorced transfer case, lockable slipper clutch, portal axles with metal gear covers, MOD-1 gears, machined aluminum spools, front CVAs, 32 rubber-sealed ball bearings, threaded aluminum shocks, 47º steering blocks with proper Ackerman, Panhard bar, LED-ready bumpers, winch-ready front bumper, and frame mounted floor pans.
The Gen8 AXE Edition features a highly detailed fully licensed International® Scout II body, hard plastic grill, plastic folding mirrors, molded inner and outer fenders, shackle mount front bumper, receiver hitch ready rear bumper, and plastic rock sliders. The Gen8's body and bumpers are ready to have LED lights installed.
True to scale, licensed Interco IROK Super Swamper tires and functional beadlock wheels pull the Gen8 AXE Edition through the toughest terrains. Each wheel uses inner and outer beadlock rings for maximum strength and tire holding capability.
Portal axles provide more ground clearance without needing bigger tires. On GEN8 models, much of the gear reduction happens inside the portal axles, which means less chassis torque twist than traditional axle shaft driven rock crawlers. The portal axles provide 54.5mm of ground clearance and include metal gear covers, metal wheel hexes, and CNC machined spools.
The innovative dual design slipper clutch allows the driver to set the slipper clutch, or completely lock it out. Locking out the slipper clutch is simple, just remove the slipper pads and springs, then reassemble. The GEN8 AXE Edition includes a 32P spur gear and Mod 1 gears in the transmission, transfer case, and portal axles.
The Gen8 AXE Edition’s heavy duty metal geared transmission and transfer case feature massive Mod 1 gears, which are designed for hard core crawling of the most grueling conditions. A sealed pinion and spur keeps the gears safe from rocks and debris. The Redcat GEN8 AXE Edition features a front mounted brushless Hobbywing AXE motor and a divorced transfer case.
The Redcat GEN8 AXE Edition makes it easy to conquer all types of terrain. The stock configuration offers users 80mm of ground clearance, a 61 degree approach angle, and a 39.5 degree departure angle.
