And for something a little different, how about a 1:8 scale crawler.  At a huge 670mm long with a 302mm wheelbase, this Jeep like crawler runs 2.2 wheels and tyres as standard. Big is not a cheap proposition either with the basic version retailing for $950 , but it certainly has a lot to offer!

  • Procomp authorised replica tyres
  • 2 speed transmission
  • Stainless steel links
  • Aluminium shocks
  • Steel chassis
  • Alloy front and rear axle housings
  • 45 degree steering angle
  • Remote control diff locks front and rear
  • Hobbywing ESC
  • Separate transfer case and gearbox

I really hope I can get my hands on one of these as it looks very interesting.  It would also be interesting to see how well the cable actuated diff locks work.  If anything this would be a competitor to the Traxxas TRX-4, however it is a little larger than that particular unit.

You can get these at Premiere Model Supplies through their website at and more details at the Traction Hobby Australia facebook page.
