There are two color choices with this model. The bodies are also interchangeable. You can also, if you choose completely paint the body to the specific artistic look. Naturally this depends on the artistic ability and also how much time you want to spend  Blackout SC 4WD Short Course truck - 1/10 Scale Brushed Electric stripping and re-painting the body to give it the unique look. I for one do not have the artistic ability. I could however put some stickers on it. Not to crafty but its all I have to offer. At least Redcat gives you the option. As mentioned earlier the Blackout design was built so parts are interchangeable. See below in the overview section for more details. This is good news if you have the driving skills of a basher and like to go at full speeds without much use of the brake system. My driving skills from my youth are now applied to my hobby of RC vehicles. My regular vehicle driving skills have toned down quite considerably. After so many tickets and high cost for insurance you learn that the price for speeding isn’t really worth it. Don’t judge.

Your focus on the path ahead as you accurately steer the Blackout SC 4WD Short course truck exactly where you want to drive. Because of its excellent performance and innovative chassis design make this model unique. This is where the design keeps the vehicle affordable giving you more driving time.

All four of the suspension arms can be used at any corner of the chassis. Each suspension are will work on the front-right or left, or rear right-left of the vehicle. It’s the same for the upper suspension arms and steering hubs. The hub carriers are also interchangeable front to rear, as are the bumpers, gear boxes, turn-buckles, diffs and body mounts.

As the battery nears the end of its charge, and you pull the Blackout SC to the feet you are not worried because you have brought a fully charged second battery. As you continue to drive RC vehicles you will learn to bring back up batteries to extend the driving pleasure. However though as the batteries charge due come to an end you bring the vehicle to the feet and begin the trek back to the car to head home. The good news is you remembered to bring the camera along and have made some very interesting shots and videos of the spectacular jumps and rooster tails to download on the computer or laptop when you get home.

Needed To Run

Blackout SC 4WD Short Course truck – 1/10 Scale Brushed Electric.

RTR stands for, ready to run. Basically out the box. It comes with everything you need to take the vehicle out of the box and go outside and start driving. They make it as simple as possible but you will always need some AA batteries and will need to charge the NiMH battery that comes with it. Even though you will have to wait for the battery to fully charge before you can drive it, with this particular vehicle all you need to complete it to make it derivable is 8 AA batteries. These can be picked up just about anywhere. If the like most of us you always have a box on hand or can find some around the house very easily. Defiantly not a deal breaker. So there you have it. All that is missing from the box is AA batteries. As you continue building the RC driving inventory you will find you have plenty of remote controls, AA batteries, a few different type NiMH batteries around along with the chargers. Most RC vehicles will come with the NiMH batteries and chargers except when you get into the more expensive models. The reason is the manufactures of these models want to give you the choice of what size battery you want that can give you the extra speed. A lot of these vehicles will take multiple ranges of batteries, ESC’s and brushed and brushless motors giving you option on how fast you want the RC to go. The Redcat Blackout version wants to keep things affordable on us the consumers while allowing us the option to upgrade depending on our budget. I for one due appreciate it.

This way Redcat can live up to their motto of, Fun, Fast and Affordable.  Blackout SC 4WD Short Course truck - 1/10 Scale Brushed Electric
