When I first wrote about Redcat Racing’s Team Redcat TR-MT8E BE6S monster truck a few months ago, there were a few pieces of information that had not yet been revealed. Today, complete details around this 1/8-scale beast have been announced, and it looks like an impressive R/C machine, to say the least. An upgraded version of the previously-released TR-MT8E, this revamped model can be powered by not one, but two LiPo batteries (2S or 3S).
That double-shot of power also means updates to the chassis, shocks, and other physical components of this radio-controlled monster truck. Here’s what Redcat Racing has to say about their latest high-performance truck:
The TRMT8E BE6S is an upgraded version of the TRMT8E, offered by Team Redcat. The TRMT8E BE6S is ready to run out of the box, just add two 2S LIPO batteries or two 3S LIPO batteries.
As if the TRMT8E wasn’t fast enough, Team Redcat locked it in a basement, mistreated it, and pumped it full of steroids. The TRMT8E BE6S is the result of their madness! A crazy powerful, super fast, and beefed up dose of adrenaline! With upgraded steel cased center differential, aluminum gear box, aluminum quick release battery retention unit, aluminum adjustable motor mount, machined spiral bevel gears, metal bevel gear case, larger diff outdrives, aluminum big bore shocks, steel pivot ball suspension, aluminum rear wing uprights, low profile all terrain monster truck tires, 5mm shock towers, waterproof Savox metal gear steering servo, and 6S waterproof 150a Hobbywing Max 8 ESC, this beast is ready to be let loose! Be careful! He may bite.
