The motor pinion and spur gear assembly is protected under a sealed cover for added reliability. Double wishbone suspension features adjustable top link steel turnbuckles throughout and aluminium oil filled shock absorbers with threaded bodies for fine-tuning spring adjustment. Front universal CVD driveshaft’s provide reliable steering whatever the turning circle, while the fully ball bearing supported drivetrain is efficient and smooth from the off.

Up top, a moulded tubular roll cage frame assembles to recreate that classic buggy appearance. Body panels screw to front, side and rear sections, whilstinside a moulded cockpit features driver and co-driver. But the scale touches don’t just end there as included as standard with the Viper is a spare rear wheel and tyre, front light bar with lenses and rear lenses all just waiting for you to installed some optional LED lights!

A splash resistant-brushed speed controlled provides the control for the 550 brushed motor and when paired with a 2S 7.4V LiPo battery is an ideal speed for new modellers finding their feet in the world off road r/c. FTX Viper, where speed and scale meet.

Hi as i fly helicopters could i share my 2200 3s lipo packs With this model. Or do i need the brushless version.
Asked by Simon on 28th September 2017

Yes, you could technically use it - however we wouldn't recommend using a soft case LiPo in a car.
