Toy Fair time is bringing some great announcements for hobbyists! Vaterra has announced new RTR models for on and off-road fun: a 1967 Ford Mustang V100-S and a Ford Raptor Pre Runner. Both of these are 1/10-scale, with the Raptor being 4-wheel drive. The Mustang, naturally, is rear-wheel drive. The two models both feature brushless power systems, 2.4ghz radio systems, and water-resistant electronics.
The inner-workings of these two borrow heavily from other Vaterra on-road and off-road models, but the new bodies make them unique additions to an already robust lineup. Pricing is listed as $289.99 for the Mustang and $449.99 for the Raptor.
One aspect that I like about the Vaterra lineup is the attention given to scale detail. Their vehicles not only perform well but they’re modeled after real-world, 1:1 scale counterparts (within reason) that let your imagination run wild when driving them. No matter what your age, you’ve got to love that! If these new vehicles have you interested in getting into the hobby (or adding more room to your r/c garage), head over to VaterraRC.com for more details.
