Step Up are developing a range which are initially electric models, specifically aimed at the entry level and cost conscious enthusiast. First up are the Stinger EB-1 1/10th Buggy and Stinger EST-2 1/10th Truggy. Both models share a common design platform so spare parts are kept to a minimum. Areas such as wishbones, hub carriers and steering blocks have been designed in a manor that allows left and right to interchange, so it is irrelevant which side might need replacing you will never get left with the wrong side from a spare pair of arms.
A modular chassis design as used on top level 1/10th racing buggies is used so that the rear and front suspension can be simply removed from the chassis in a matter of seconds. In addition this design provides a stiff 'box' section for the whole car's suspension to work from.
The gearbox utilises a 3-gear design comprising of a bevel gear differential, idler gear and top shaft. To complete the section an adjustable external slipper clutch helps protect the transmission from shock damage.
Composite , oil filled shocks are standard as is quality r/ c radio system and electronic speed controller. Both models are finished off with a funky pre-printed bodyshell of your choice.
Want to race you Stinger? Well Step Up intends to release a wide range of options that will ultimately allow you to bring your ride up to a whole new level of performance as you progress with your own abilities.
