Force RC Epidemic 1/8-scale, 4×4, Brushless Monster Truck

Bring on the power! Force RC has released another brushless, 1/8-scale R/C truck which appears to be ready for fun, no matter where it unfolds. The Epidemic is a brushless-powered, 4-wheel drive R/C monster truck that boasts impressive features while keeping costs reasonable.

Looking at the specs, the Epidemic could easily be confused with a “light” version of an ARRMA model. An aluminum chassis serves as the base for this basher and it features four, aluminum-bodied, threaded shocks, as well as four “meaty” tires to ensure traction and performance.
