Get ready for some serious off road buggy action with the Brushless Edition FTX Vantage. Taking RTR styling to a competition level, the Vantage brushless boasts some amazing features for the ultimate ‘Ready-to-Run experience.

Etronix provide crystal free 2.4ghz control with the EX2 Sport radio. In addition the Etronix Photon sensorless brushless system is installed to provide some low maintenance, high performance speed and power. 

Instead of using a NiMh battery, FTX decided to include a Voltz hardcase LiPo battery to get the very best from the Photon system, but with safety
in-mind included is a balance charger and LiPo charge sack. Infact all you need to add is AA batteries for the transmitter.

The 4wd shaft drivetrain features metal diff gears and front universal driveshafts, while an integrated slipper helps protect the drive from possible damage. With adjustable turnbuckles all round and large bore oil filled shock absorbers the Vantage is raring to go.

In addition if you want to tune and upgrade your Vantage, FTX provide a wide range of carbon and aluminium upgrades that will bring your ride up to a whole new pro level.

Hi, I am trying to find a full kit to build myself, but it needs to include all the parts needed (except AA batteries). I don't want a pre-built one. Do you sell these as they all say 'comes complete'.
Asked by Kennie on 6th September 2016

This particular model (and most we sell) is RTR (Ready to Run) so is pre-assembled.

We do sell build kits, and can put together a package for you - it may be best to drop our team a quick email and we'll be happy to help!

What are the dimenh sions of the battery holder ( biggest size battery I can fit in the car
Asked by William Hill on 28th November 2017

This is designed for 'standard size' stick packs, so most 7.4v stick packs for example will fit.

FTX recommend 2S maximum.

Answered by: Ben @ Wheelspin Models

How quick actually is this?
Asked by Dave Leppard on 24th July 2018

We'd estimate around 40mph - but FTX don't quote an official top speed.

Answered by: Ben @ Wheelspin Models

can you put a 6S 22 volt 50c deans battery pack into it to make it faster

No. Recommended maximum is 2S on these.

Answered by: Ben @ Wheelspin Models

Hi am interested in the FTX vantage brushless Does it come with a battery? And if I buy the additional sports pack will it come with another battery Thankyou
Asked by Nathan Hartnell on 19th November 2018

Yes, these come with a 2S LiPo in the box.

If you add one of our combo packs, the original battery is still there, so you will have additional packs for extra runtime!

Answered by: Ben @ Wheelspin Models

How fast does the ftx vantage go with a 3s lipo and are there any other fast affordable cars
Asked by George Margetts on 2nd June 2019

We'd recommend 2S max on this, which would give a top speed of around 40mph or so.

We have a huge range, what kind of budget are you looking at? For the money - these are great value for money.
