Capping off a weekend of teaser posts, Redcat Racing has unveiled their latest creation, the Wendigo Rock Racer. Featuring a brushless powerplant and 2.2″ wheels, this 1/10-scale off-roading monster should fit right in with the likes of the Axial Wraith and RR10 Bomber.
Redcat Racing has been on a brushless kick as of late and the Wendigo keeps that streak alive. With a front-mounted, 3300kv motor (540-size), you can hook up both NiMh or LiPo power and hit the trail with confidence.
Past the performance aspects offered by this rig, Redcat’s Wendigo looks like a tried-and-true trail machine under the body. Using design lessons learned from their GEN8 platform, this 1/10-scale rock racer features a ladder-frame chassis with center-mounted battery tray, four-link suspension, and divorced transfer case.
With a body style that fits this rig’s rugged, off-road demeanor, this open-cab, roll cage-clad rock machine has an impressive and aggressive appearance. Decked out with scale items such as a driver’s compartment, sand ramps, fire extinguisher, and detailed grille, this rig is a solid blend of performance and visual appeal.
The 2.2″ Raceline wheels and Interco tires should have no problem putting all of that rock-ready power to good use. When things get crazy, or when you choose to get crazy, an adjustable sway bare is installed and ready to help you calm this beast.
