Vaterra RC has made a name for themselves as being one R/C vehicle manufacturer that pays attention to (scale) details and creates vehicles that are not only durable, but also closely resemble machines that you’d see on the road. One of their latest is the 1972 Chevy C10 Pickup Truck. This 1/10 model is available in a ready-to-run (RTR) package and is built on Vaterra’s now, well-known V100-S chassis.
Besides looking like a stunner on the outside, this machine, with it’s slammed, road-hugging stance, and low-profile tires, features the same goodies under the hood…er, body, that hobbyists have come to expect.
