Vaterra Twin Hammers 1.9 Rock Racer

This is the Vaterra Twin Hammers 1/10 Scale 4WD RTR (Ready-To-Run) Electric Rock Racer, with an included 2.4GHz Spektrum DX3e radio system, 540 brushed motor power system, 7.4V 2000mAh LiPo battery pack and a battery charger.

Each February, hundreds of rock racers compete in a 165-mile-long race through Johnson Valley in California’s Mojave Desert. Many call it the toughest off-road race on the planet. Thousands of fans are watching. Adrenaline is pumping. Two trails in the race, the Jackhammer and the Sledgehammer, are the most difficult. They’re known as the Twin Hammers-the place where legends are made.

No longer do you have to choose between a 1.9 crawler and an off-road buggy. With the Twin Hammers™ rock racer, you get the best of both worlds in one bone-crushing vehicle. Easily handle anything you come up against, from jagged rocks to extreme jumps. Just shift the two-speed transmission on the fly and you’re good to go. Your next adventure is waiting. And it starts with the Twin Hammers.


In-Depth Features:

  • 4-Link Suspension: A single solid axle with rear shocks mounted on the trailing arms gives the Twin Hammers rock racer a scale look that is simply unmatched in RC. It also lets you crawl or go on high-speed runs when you want, where you want.
  • Brushless Ready Drive Train: Go from crawling to high speeds at the push of a button without stopping. You can easily shift the two-speed gearbox into low range to tackle treacherous rocks and then shift into high range to blast across rough terrain. The control is yours.
  • Waterproof* Electronics: Includes watertight, sealed electronics that let you drive anytime, anywhere. Snow, rain and mud – this truck can handle it all. (For complete details on waterproof standards, please refer to the product instruction manual)
  • Scale Lights, Cockpit & Body Panels: Talk about realism. The Twin Hammers rock racer has a multi-piece body kit, an extensive roll-cage design, a spare tire on the back and an authentic-looking cockpit area.
  • Beadlock Wheels & Tires: Tackle the terrain in style. The Twin Hammers rock racer comes with five fully-functional, realistic scale wheels and tires that look just like those on full-size trucks.

    On one of the pictures it looks like the motor is “15 turns”, or that is what I’m guessing that it is written on the motor.
