Vaterra’s Ascender Chevy Blazer is Ready to Rock

The increasingly-popular 1/10-scale Ascender kit (featuring a Chevrolet K5 Blazer body) by Vaterra has been receiving rave reviews since its release. The thought and details that were out into that setup make it an instant challenger to Axial and their SCX10 platform. For those hobbyists looking to get into Vaterra’s new ride with a little less hassle, a ready-to-run version has just been announced.
