  • New Model From Redcat!

    Looks like Redcat is dropping their hat in the SC bucket (again).. A naming contest for the new model is currently going on with Redcat now. This current picture is a proto-type but will be almost identical to the production units.

      Here's hoping its more reliable and durable than their other models. I think the only disappointment is those tires. It would be great if they used a universally appropriate hex/axle size so that you could have more tire choice...

      It looks kinda like the baja 5t with a Kraken cage on it. Not a bad looking rig, I too hope that the model is reliable and durable.

      Not a bad looking proto. Hopefully they stretch the chassis a little more and like already said get away from the wheel hex diameter Redcat uses, most likely who ever picks one up they are going to convert it anyways. After looking more at the pic, maybe not stretch the chassis, the roll cage just seems high looks a little cartoonish, more scale look would work.

      I stumbled across these pictures of the upcoming new Rampage 1/5 Desert Buggy / Sand Rail today.

      I didn't notice that before, but I'm sure your right!
      If they do come out with a brushless version I may have to pick one up, be a great stable mate for my XB-E

      Love it or hate it, Redcat Racing has decided on a name for the new 1/5 Sand Rail.

      According to a post on RCUniverse by the owner of Redcat Racing it's going to be called the Chimera SR. According to Wikipedia, a Chimera is a "monstrous creature with parts from multiple animals" so I suppose the name works in some ways...part Rampage XSC + Part Redcat Mirage

      Based in their other 1/5 scale I would think $699-799.

      coming from the uk chimera brings to mind the TVR chimera...redcat certainly doesn't bring a monstrous creature to mind, the tvr did...they are renowned for being totally mad and difficult to handle
