Redcat Racing’s 1/6-scale “Shredder” Monster Truck

Redcat Racing’s 1/6-scale “Shredder” Monster Truck

Redcat Racing is bringing back one of their classic radio-controlled “bashers”. After a two-year break, their Shredder monster truck has returned, ready to tear up back yards and ballparks far and wide.

This massive, ⅙-scale, ready-to-run (RTR) machine has been given some updated hardware and chassis components, including larger tires, beefier shocks, and improved overall durability.

An aluminum chassis serves as the base for this larger-scale truck, providing not only a strong backbone, but also keeping weight to a minimum. A brushless motor, powered by two LiPo batteries (not included) is the heartbeat of the V2 Shredder, helping to rocket this beat to top speed in what should be a short amount of time.

Capping off this monster truck is an eye-catching body that features red, black, and silver color scheme. A large wing sits at the back while two molded scoops protrude from the hood. This is definitely an aggressive-looking and impressive-sounding (spec-wise) R/C vehicle.
