VTR03090 1/10th 1972 Chevrolet® K10 Pickup Ascender ???.?? (RRP)

  • ABOUT THE CHASSIS

    Even in the world of extreme off-road enthusiasts, there are varying degrees of devotion. For most, it’s enough to take an SUV or pickup off the streets, lift it, drop in a big-bore engine and hit the trails. Then there are the builders – guys with vision and a blow torch. Not content with the status quo, they cut, weld and create thoroughly unique off-road machines that are as much art as they are feats of engineering. This incredibly scale recreation of a customised, 1972 K10 pickup is a tribute to these visionaries. It’s built on the proven Vaterra® Ascender™ chassis and comes ready for scaler competition with a functional spare tyre and wheel, waterproof electronics, aluminium panels and more.

    This 4WD juggernaut is based on the Vaterra® Ascender™ chassis – an incredibly scale off-road platform that is engineered for extreme off-road environments. It comes completely assembled and equipped with waterproof electronics so you can drive it anywhere a full-scale off-road truck would go.

    Steel, C-channel frames form the backbone of the Ascender™ chassis and give you four wheelbase lengths to choose from: 314mm (12.36 in), 302mm (11.9 in), 290mm (11.4 in) and 278mm (10.95 in). Markings on the frames make adjustment easy.

    The single-speed, metal gear transmission is engineered for steep inclines and rugged, rocky terrain. Those seeking a broader range of speed and climb performance can upgrade to the optional two-speed transmission, sold separately.

    As with the rest of the drivetrain components, these have been designed to handle rugged terrain. They also allow up to 45 degrees of steering angle – more than most other trucks in this class.

    The painted, polycarbonate body is modeled after one of the most popular K-10 pickups ever built. Scale touches include an injection-molded grille with headlight details and authentic Chevrolet badging.

    The realistic drivetrain and suspension are complemented by licensed replicas of Interco TSL SX Super Swamper® tyres. Like the full-scale versions, their tread pattern and compound provide excellent grip at almost any angle

    The potent Dynamite® motor delivers all the torque you need to muscle over rock piles and power through mud and brush. A waterproof receiver, speed control and steering servo let you drive in the real world, where things get wet and the weather is often less than perfect.
