Isaac just sent me a few more nice pics of his DuneRunner sporting a chrome JetPro rear mount pipe. Looks great Isaac!
I'm often asked the difference between the Rampage MT and the Rampage XT. I've been wanting to make a video for some time now but Redcat Racing has beat me to it (and done a better job of it than I would have) so I thought I'd share it with you. Skip ahead to the 3:00 minute mark to start seeing 1/5 scale:
Isaac Gonzales from Texas just emailed me these pics of his nicely modified DuneRunner. Isaac has added
Your DuneRunner looks awesome Isaac! Thanks for sharing.
Check out these pictures that Brett emailed me of his Rampage XBE (with a truck conversion) beside his 1/8 Terremoto. The Terremoto is a big truck but looks pretty small next to the Rampage...
Brett's Terremoto is sporting some ProLine Trenchers and Tech 5 wheels
Here's a good view of both trucks. I like the flowing shape of the Terremoto's body
Those Trenchers are almost as tall as the Rampage XT tires
This shot shows how much longer the Rampage is compared to the Terremoto
The Grave Digger is a Traxxas Summit...you can see how similar in size the Terremoto is to the Summit
Check out these pics of Phyllis's Chimera SR featuring a few nice aluminum hop-ups:
This picture shows the aluminum roll cage and aluminum air filter
If you look closely you can see the aluminum front upper suspension arms and aluminum rear lower arms
Check out these pictures of Brett's shiny new XTE! Brett ordered an XBE from me along with all of the parts to convert his buggy into a truck and it looks great!
Brett's XTE sporting a 50912 Rampage MT Body
Brett also added some LED lights. You can see the base of his RC stand in this picture too
Here's a good shot comparing the size of Brett's XTE next to his 1/10 Traxxas Slash
Brett's XTE looks as if it came from the factory like this...nice
Here you can see how Brett added XT wheels, front bumper and body posts to his XBE to get the XTE look
Redcat Racing has created a cool new video containing all of the Rampage models. Check it below:
The video features the following Rampages:
Here's a quick video on how to install a kill switch in your Rampage. This video shows installation into a Chimera SR but the same procedure applies to all the other gas powered Rampages
Update: After some very successful testing of the new Terremoto, I've decided to offer it for sale through RampageShop.com. Check it out here
Redcat Racing recently announced another addition to their product line. It's a 1/8 scale brushless, 4x4 monster truck called the Terremoto. Initially I thought it was simply an Earthquake 8e with larger tires but now that they are available, I see that it's an entirely new platform.
I haven't decided yet whether or not I'll offer the Terremoto for sale through RampageShop.com but I have ordered one for myself to test.
The Terremoto appears to have long suspension travel to soak up the bumps
The chassis layout looks clean and all electronics are protected with plastic covers
The Terremoto is equipped with dual, 15kg waterproof steering servos
Here's a look under the Terremoto's narrow chassis. Note the dual Lipo battery holders
17mm Hubs and aluminum shocks come standard on the Terremoto
If you have already have a Terremoto or you are thinking about getting one, I'd love to hear your thoughts on it. Please leave a comment below.
Stay tuned for more updates
Redcat posted a few action shots of the new Chimera EP Pro 1/5 Brushless Sand Rail recently. Check them out and let me know what you think.
