New - Step Up Stinger 1/10th Electric Buggy and Truggy
Considering trying your hand at RC off road? Then it could well be time to 'step up' to the mark with the exciting new range of models called Stinger from STEP UP.
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.

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.
