This is the Kyosho Inferno VE ReadySet 4WD Brushless Electric Race Spec 1/8 Off Road Buggy. Developed in collaboration with Team Orion’s Oscar Jansen in the 104° F (40° Celsius) heat of the World Championship track in Thailand, this machine has been designed for quality 1/8 buggy performance under the most extreme conditions, straight out of the box! The success of the electric Inferno VE buggy was built on the design DNA of the multiple World Championship winning Inferno, now the VE has been taken to the next level with the Inferno VE Race Spec. The burst of high-torque acceleration from the “Team Orion Vortex 8 Brushless System” can be felt immediately upon take off. Big Bore shocks and front / rear stabilizers come standard on the new Race Spec VE. Also fumbling around with crystals are a thing of the past with the newly developed Syncro 2.4GHz radio system that automatically delivers faster interference free control for the most advanced performance and technology in an electric racing buggy.
- Syncro 2.4GHz: A stylish FHSS 2.4GHz rc system featuring dual rate functions has been pre-installed with a 4 channel receiver.
- High Torque Metal Gear Servo: Equipped with a high torque metal gear KS-200 servo for the best performance right out of the box.
- Threaded Big Bore Shocks: Heavy duty big bore oil shocks are included as standard equipment to handle even the harshest punishment for long periods without buckling and provides excellent damping power. Strong 3.5mm shafts deliver smooth and effective damping for sure-footed performance on a wide range of surfaces.
- Large Diameter Wheels: The VE Race Spec comes equipped with the same strong wheels as the MP9 competition kit.
- Kyosho Tires: Micro-square pattern tires are pre-mounted giving you full traction on a wide range of surfaces.
- Super Air Flow Body: Includes a factory-painted body that efficiently channels airflow for a greater aerodynamic effect.
- Flexibility & Rigidity: Composite torque rods in front and rear deliver optimal flexibility and rigidity along the chassis, increasing the effectiveness of the suspension for greater traction and consistent handling.
- Ball Bearings: Full ball bearings throughout the entire chassis for maximum efficiency.
- Tough Buggy: Factory-assembled chassis shares the same tough characteristics and low center of gravity s the World Championship winning Inferno 7.5.
- 4WD: Shaft-driven 4WD chassis with three differentials.
- Suspension Arms: Thicker suspension arms adds overall strength to the already robust nitro platform.
- Spiral Gears: Precision machine-cut metal spiral gears in the front and rear differential ring and pinion delivers superior reliability, strength and efficiency.
- Mud Guards: Mud guards are installed on the rear suspension arms to prevent dirt from collecting on the drive lines and getting inside the wheels. Each aspect of the Inferno VE Race Spec has been carefully considered for peak performance under the harshest conditions.
