Redcat Racing's Latest Expedition: Everest-10

By: Tim Gluth

My love for Redcat Racing’s RS10 Rockslide should be quite apparent by now and my R/C-loving heart was set aflutter earlier this week when I discovered a new crawler announcement from those fine folks. The Everest 10 isn’t a replacement for the Rockslide, but an addition to their existing rock crawler lineup.

Based on the same chassis layout that is used by the RS10 (and other comp-style crawler rigs), the differences between the two models begins with the drivetrain and power plant.  Rather than using a MOA-style (motor on axle) setup, this rig is shaft-driven (4-wheel drive) off of a single, brushed motor (mounted in the center of the chassis).  The same four-link suspension that is found on the RS10 is found here, making this flexible setup an excellent candidate for modding and upgrades.

You’ll also find bead-lock wheels, a 2.4GHz radio system, waterproof electronics, and a few other goodies with this RTR package.  With all of that power out of the box, you’re in for hours of fun, no matter where you choose to drive.


  • Motor Type - Electric Brushed
  • Transmission - Forward & Reverse
  • Drive System - 4 Wheel Drive
  • Chassis Type - Aluminum
  • Shocks - Aluminum Capped Oil Filled
  • Battery - 7.2v 2000mAh NiMh & Charger Included
  • Radio System - 2.4GHz Radio System

On the price-front, the Everest 10 retails for $169.99 (on  Given the low entry-point, this may be one of my next R/C purchases for another “quasi-scale” build.
