This is the Vaterra Ford Raptor Pre-Runner 1/10 Scale 4WD RTR Truck, with an included Spektrum DX2E 2.4GHz Radio System. 

It doesnít matter who you are. The massive presence and menacing growl of a Ford Raptor awakens something primal when you slip behind the wheel. Thatís because the Raptor is no mere pickup truck. Itís a 411 hp call of the wild built to tear across desert wastes and assault rock-filled ravines, much like the Baja pre-runners and trophy trucks that inspired its creation.

The Vaterra Ford Raptor pre runner is engineered to be driven just like the awesome Raptor trophy trucks that compete in grueling, long distance desert races like the Baja 1000. Underneath its detailed body is a rugged 4WD chassis complete with long-travel suspension and metal gear VTV (Viscous Torque Vectoring) differentials. This, combined with its high-output Dynamite brushless power system, will allow you to tackle any terrain at speeds of over 55 mph. And youíll do so with the unbelievable stability of Spektrum AVC (Active Vehicle Control) technology that makes hundreds of steering and throttle corrections per second so you can drive faster with more control. 

In-Depth Features:

  • AVC (Active Vehicle Control) Technology: Patent-pending Spektrum AVC technology uses a combination of sensors and software algorithms to adjust steering and throttle output at a rate faster than humanly possible, so you enjoy a more manageable driving experience.
  • Licensed Ford Raptor Pre Runner Body: The licensed body is modeled after the Raptor pre runner trucks that compete in grueling long distance desert races like the Baja 1000. It comes pre-painted with cooling fan and fuel tank details as well as official Ford badging.
  • Waterproof Electronics: Rain or shine, mud or sand, the waterproof servo, receiver and speed control allow you to run wild without worry.
  • High-Performance Brushless Power System: Revel in the power of a potent Dynamite 3300Kv, 4-pole brushless motor system that delivers massive torque and speeds of over 55 mph. (*Requires 11.1V, 3S LiPo Battery, sold separately)
  • Metal Gear VTV (Viscous Torque Vectoring) Differentials: The innovative VTV differentials prevent wheel spin on loose surfaces when cornering hard or hammering the throttle. Their smooth engagement and consistent feel, along with AVC technology, will give you confidence to run fast on all types of surfaces.

Vaterra Ford Raptor Pre-Runner 1/10 4WD RTR Truck w/DX2E 2.4GHz Radio System
I am going to provide a long review so to sum it all up, this truck is better than a traxxas slash 4x4, team associated prolite, and an ecx torment 4x4 and I highly recommend it. First thing I noticed about this truck is that it has tons of suspension travel, as much as you'd expect from a 1/8 monster truck. Stock suspension set up is very plush which provides a very scale and fun driving experience but doesn't like jumping very well. To fix this I added some 40wt shock oil and its handling and jumping significantly improved. In the air it does really well. Enough power to lift the nose up and good brakes to settle the nose down and after putting the stiffer oil in, the landings were quite smooth. The looks of this thing are awesome. only flaw is the body and the body posts are quite separated leaving for a lot of body rattling. To fix this I made my own foam body washers and now, even when jumping, you cant even hear the body. Electronics are good. I have been a huge fan a dynamite electronics but I feel this truck isn't suited for what they have provided. I do all my running on 2s and the motor gets very hot. Also the ESC fan sometimes doesn't want to start up. But the system provides good power and speed. On a 2s I'm assuming I'm getting around 35 mph. It feels much faster when you have the stiffer oil. Tires aren't too bad. Really fun on the street but not too good on dirt but the AVC makes up for all the lost traction. Gear mesh is really tight and loud and unfortunately that CANNOT be adjusted. I was dissapointed that this truck has plastic driveshafts but they are actually constructed really well and I don't see one breaking any time soon. I have put a few hard battery packs through this truck at the bmx park and durablility has been great. No problems at all. Truck is also quite easy to do maintenance on but BEWARE OF SQUEAKING.From the driveshafts to all the links, everything is super stiff. Make sure to put some wd40 on the driveshaft joints and all the steering racks or else you'll end up with a really squeaky ride. Overall this is a super fun truck and you can make it handle a lot better for only a few bucks. Super durable and a reliable drivetrain. I would highly recommend this to someone who just wants a fun vehicle to someone who is looking to purchase their first brushless truck.
