The Redcat Wendigo 1/10 4WD Solid Axle Rock Racer Kit allows the RC enthusiast to build this competitive rock racer the way they want it. The Wendigo Builder’s Kit includes a complete unassembled chassis, wheels, tires, clear body, and additional scale accessories. Build it, paint it, add your own electronics and compete.
While the Wendigo builder’s kit is very similar to the RTR Wendigo, some enhancements have been made specifically for the kit version. Not only will your Wendigo kit based custom rig look great, but it’ll have the potential to outperform your entire fleet.
The Wendigo kit includes the same high performance shocks as the RTR, but with silver aluminum threaded shock bodies, black adjustable preload collars, laser etched black aluminum shock caps and titanium nitride coated shock shafts. The Wendigo kit’s aluminum frame rails are also laser etched with the Redcat logo. Enhanced for the Wendigo builder’s kit are the front and rear solid axles, with steel axle tube inserts. This adds even more rigidity and strength to these already amazing axles. Another major performance upgrade is the use of a softer rubber compound on the aggressive Super Swamper tires. This TC5 soft tire compound adds lots of traction, giving you another competitive advantage. The black Raceline wheels now have a silver outer bead ring, just for the Wendigo builder’s kit.
The Wendigo kit is loaded with high end features and components, like its competition inspired weight distribution. The front mounted position for the motor and transmission, along with its centrally located battery tray and divorced transfer case provide excellent front to rear weight distribution for confidence inspiring driving.
The Wendigo kit’s 1.5mm steel ladder-type frame rails provide a sturdy backbone for this vehicle. The wheelbase is adjustable from 334.7mm to 358.7mm, with 346.7mm being the stock configuration. The Wendigo’s gear boxes feature Mod1 gears and ball bearings. The heavy duty telescoping driveshafts provide reliable power delivery to the front and rear trussed axle housings with diamond shaped pumpkins. The diamond-shaped central axle housing easily slides over obstacles and the CNC aluminum spool, along with a one piece pinion gear, can handle heavy weight, big power and aggressive driving. Steel internal axle tube inserts add low CG weight and prevent axle flex.
The heavy duty 5mm metal suspension links use flared heavy-duty ball cups for an incredibly durable 4-link suspension setup. An adjustable rear sway bar helps to minimize torque twist and adds stability during high speed cornering.
The Wendigo sits on licensed Interco Super Swamper 2.2” tires which are mounted to licensed Raceline Avenger wheels. The Super Swampers scooped tread lugs provide excellent forward grip on dirt, grass, pavement, rocks, mud and snow. The aggressive tread design and lug spacing release dirt and debris, keeping the tire clean for the next obstacle. Side lugs allow the Wendigo to achieve grip while squeezing between two large rocks, through washouts and other canyon-like obstacles. Now in TC5 ultra-grip soft compound, these tires are impressive performers.
Many scale details and accessories come standard with the Redcat Wedigo to ensure users get the very best visual experience from their vehicle. This kit includes a clear racing body with narrowed rear quarters and a full roll cage. Additional scale details include a driver and co-pilot with adjustable helmet visors, a realistic navigation screen, rear fuel cell and a radiator with twin cooling fans. Additional scale accessories include a fuel can, fire extinguishers and functional recovery ramps.
