4.Overview

When you're heading into the rough with your 1/7 scale brushless MOJAVE™ 6S BLX Desert Truck RTR, you can be confident you'll have the speed and strength needed to make it through. The tough-as-nails anodized aluminum chassis has been reinforced with a center brace for maximum durability. Bumpers and nerf bars supply impact protection on all sides. Thanks to an independent suspension with bump-soaking oil-filled shocks, the truck handles equally well over wicked and well-travelled tracks.

The drivetrain is a masterpiece of heavy-duty design. Featuring steel driveshafts, metal gears, and all-metal diff outdrives, it's ready to take full advantage of the brushless power system's potential. As it comes out of the box, the MOJAVE™ 6S BLX Desert Truck is incredibly fast. Use a 6S LiPo with the optional pinion gear upgrade (gear is included), and the dial goes up to unbeatable — the resulting 60+ MPH speed potential is enough to crush any competitor. Keeping your truck in top form is easy. A sliding mount gives you access to the motor in seconds. You can remove the center diff for maintenance by taking out just four bolts.

Multi-terrain dBoots® tires on multi split-spoke wheels give your MOJAVE™ 6S BLX Desert Truck the grip to get up, over, or through anything in your way. And it doesn't just perform like a winner. It looks like one, too, with a painted and decaled desert truck body, color-coordinated roll cage and roof rails, and even a detailed cockpit.

The ready-to-run MOJAVE™ 6S BLX Desert Truck comes with a Spektrum™ STX2® 2.4GHz radio whose lightweight, comfortable design is ideal for long bashing sessions. The ergonomic steering wheel gives you precise control, and easily adjustable trim dials make it easy to tune the handling to your personal touch.
