The Element Enduro Gatekeeper 1/10 Rock Crawler Builders Kit delivers the performance to tackle the trails with confidence, and the durability needed to endure anything that gets in your way. Developed for the serious RC rock crawler enthusiast, the Enduro Gatekeeper kit is packed full of high performance features.

The Gatekeeper Suspension package (GKS™) is what makes this rig unique. This package consists of rear trailing arms that move the shocks forward, allowing a larger window for shock tuning and providing improved weight bias. The trailing arms are paired with a rear anti-roll bar for a more stable and consistent suspension when crawling on the rocks. An adjustable aluminum track bar mount firmly bolted to the chassis rail gives the Enduro GK more reliable and responsive steering without the flex. Shock mount inserts with multiple mounting positions allow for precise suspension tuning whether it's moving the shocks up, down, forward, or back.

The performance doesn't stop there. The Enduro GK is built on the proven stamped steel C-channel Enduro chassis and retains the same awesome features with the addition of hard plastic components and machined steel pivot balls.

The behind-the-axle (BTA) steering link greatly improves approach angle and front-end clearance, making rough terrain much easier to handle. The Stealth X transmission allows the ability to adjust the rear drive ratio independently from the front drive across three levels: stock overdrives the front end 5.7% (included with kit), option 1 provides a one-to-one drive ratio front-to-rear (available separately), and option 2 overdrives the front end 11.83% (included with kit).

Feeding the power to the tires are 3-piece telescopic driveshafts with an extruded aluminum center section, universal front drive axles, and hardened steel ring and pinion gears. With the Enduro GK drivetrain, delivering useful and reliable power will not be an issue.

The Enduro GK kit isn't just all about performance, it's got looks, too. The Gatekeeper molded cage and polycarbonate panels are the perfect fit for a high-performance rock crawler or trail truck. The included interior with molded driver and passenger heads, along with detailed decal sheet, give the Gatekeeper body awesome scale looks. The removable hinged body mount makes accessing the electronics and working on the chassis a breeze, whether out on the trail or in the garage.

Element RC Enduro Gatekeeper 1/10 Rock Crawler Builders Kit
Great kit. A couple things to mention though: First they should include all the transmission gears in the kit so you do not have to go hunting for the one option you want. Second mine came with High lift front lower links but the instructions did not have them in there, was a bit confused until I did some research and found a video about it. Other than that the kit went together real well with no problems. Electronic i used a hobbywing fusion motor and esc, with my flysky noble nb4 transmitter. Everything goes together well. I only wish that it had portals but thank god I had an extra set to use. Runs great and looks good.

Element RC Enduro Gatekeeper 1/10 Rock Crawler Builders Kit
Got the kit most of the way built now. I have built dozens of kits from other manufacturers and all I can say is these kits go together nice and smooth with no issues up to this point.

The only complaint I have is the non overdrive gears for the transmission don’t appear to be included, but for me that’s an easy fix as I have an enduro trans I can swap in and then build this trans for the enduro. The reason I don’t want on overdriven front axle is I am building this to be sort of a mini bomber.

For electronics I went with a mamba x, castle slate 2850kv with 18t pinion, savox 2292 servo with a ruddog rx and a mt44. Also running vanquish methods with pitbull rock beast tires

Would definitely recommend this kit to friends and others

This is an amazing kit. Some have bad impressions of it based upon it high center of gravity and its approach angle but both of these discrepancies are easily addressed. At this price I bought a second one. Get one before they are gone. Really!

Element RC Enduro Gatekeeper 1/10 Rock Crawler Builders Kit
This was my first kit build and I couldn't be happier. Everything assembled with no issue other than the screws that secure the transmission gears. They're not the easiest to torque down, hex skipped once or twice but still went in, the supplied assembly grease does help. The shocks are so smooth and haven't shown any signs of leakage at all. The included overdrive setup is very nice, I've never had a rig equipped with this, its amazing how it just pulls the front end around obstacles. The steering angle is what initially drew me to this kit, that combined with the overdrive makes navigating tight spots a breeze. I will purchase again as this is the cheapest path to an Ecto IMO, just buy the body and you're good to go. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Element RC Enduro Gatekeeper 1/10 Rock Crawler Builders Kit
I already owned the RTR and decided to buy the kit when it went on sale. I absolutely love Element products and the Gatekeeper is right there at the top of being one of my favorite rigs. It crawls fantastic. It's fun to bash on a rocky path and it's almost indestructible with that cage. I'm not going to compare it to anything else but let's just say the internet is dead wrong about the cage being too heavy. Yes the cage is heavy but in stock form my RTR did some amazing things that other caged crawlers could not.

If you're thinking about getting an Element rig you CANNOT go wrong with this especially while it's on sale. You get the better shocks and the hard plastics. If you don't like the cage you can get a body and still be better off than buying something else.

The Element platform is a solid performer as is, but with a couple of upgrades and it’s even better. Just wished they offered hard inner fenders. Can’t beat the price though.

Okay, so the kit assembly is a bit different if you used to the Axial or traxxas variety, and there are a lot of different sized screws that slow things down. But overall a fun kit, and at this price it is a STEAL!

Element RC Enduro Gatekeeper 1/10 Rock Crawler Builders Kit
Love the Gatekeeper for crawling. It attacks the toughest courses with finesse with the 2.2 wheels/tires. Have added a rear steer for even more control. This is a tough competitor for my modified Capra with 2.2 wheels/tires. What enjoyment to run both of these.

Would be five stars but the shock oil came open in the box. Made a slight mess. Amain says if the paint won't stick to the body they will replace. Fedex was late too but that not A mains fault.

The Gatekeeper is one purchase that I'm happy to make at the price Amain is offering. Its the 3rd one I have bought.
Its performance is great. It will out climb other RCs that I have built. It can be fragile, I have broken front axle on getting wheel caught on under a root. I've also broken rear axle housing, The new grey version plastic might be brittle. all in all I still highly recommend this truck to anyone.

I like the idea of the kit as there are a lot of options, when it comes to finishing detailing it. With a small alteration the body can be easily removable (leaving out the 2 screw pins in the bumper john shults tip).
