Scale Fans Rejoice! The Gmade KOMODO is Available for Order

By: Tim Gluth

One of the more highly-anticipated models in the radio-controlled scale crawling scene is now available for order. The Gmade KOMODO 4x4 trail truck is one aggressive-looking and highly-detailed R/C rigs to hit the market in some time.  While the body style isn’t officially licenced from a major auto manufacturer, it bears a striking resemblance to Ford’s newer F-150.  Known for their “old-school” Jeep-inspired Sawback models, this is the first truck that Gmade has produced.



This kit offers a number of great features that you won’t typically find if you opt for a  a ready-to-run (RTR) model. The chassis is constructed of steel, featuring a ladder frame design and c-channel side rails. An adjustable battery plate will give you a variety of options to move the battery weight around in your vehicle for optimal performance when tackling tough terrain and the 4-link suspension will make sure you have enough clearance and articulation to get through or over anything in your path.  G-Transition aluminum, internal spring shock absorbers are also found in with this kit, along with 1.9” tires and wheels (plastic beadlock) for a true-to-scale look.


For you scale fanatics, this vehicle has a variety of scale accessories that will make other scale R/C vehicles jealous. A brush guard, roof rack, beefy front and rear bumpers, door handles, side mirrors and molded light buckets for the headlights and taillights are just a few of the many fine-detail touches that you’ll see on the KOMODO.  If you’re after more scale goodness, Gmade has an array of optional scale accessories for this vehicle as well:

  • 3-LED Fog Light Set (GM40034)
  • 5-light LED Light Bar Set (GM40054)

Priced around $300.95 at some online hobby shops, this is a great kit for any level of radio-control enthusiast. If you’ve had your eye on this R/C model since it was announced, there are a number of shops that are ready to take your order and get you rolling with a new KOMODO.  Get complete details on the Gmade KOMODO 4x4 R/C truck.
