The Helion Rock Rider Brushless RTR 4WD Electric Rock Racer takes the existing Rock Rider platform, and gives it a facelift with a striking paint job, combined with a more powerful 3300kV brushless motor and 50A all-weather ESC. This is packed into the proven, 4WD powertrain that has been thoroughly tested in the full range of off-road conditions and has passed with flying colors.

Pop the clips, lift the body and beneath you’ll find a finely-tuned blend of high-strength composites that combine with a proven transmission and suspension system to provide traction and stability when you most need it. The solid 6-link rear axle offers almost limitless tuning options, plus corner-to-corner aluminum threaded shocks for easy pre-load adjustment, smooth movement, and consistent handling. Topped with an independent front suspension system and high-grip all-weather tires all the crucial performance boxes have been checked. With hex hardware throughout, a fully protected spur gear housing and a shock-absorbing sprung servo saver, low maintenance and durability are a priority, too.

A take-anywhere trailblazer, mud bogger, hill climber and dust blaster, the Rock Rider Brushless is a performance-driven all-terrain rock bouncer that could quickly become your grab ‘n’ go truck for every occasion.



  • Rear Axle: Scale in appearance and offering the same benefits as a 1:1 Rock Racer, a 6-link rear axle with offset pumpkin offers almost limitless tuning options and improves ground clearance.
  • Ready to Run: The Helion Rock Rider BL is supplied 100% factory assembled and ready to run. Included is a rechargeable 7-cell, 8.4V 1800mAh battery, mains charger and 2-channel 2.4GHz IKONNIK ET3 radio system with fully proportional steering and throttle control. All you need to complete is 4 ‘AA’ batteries for the transmitter.
  • Front Suspension: An independent front suspension system combined with high-grip all-weather tires offers ultimate off-road stability and traction.
  • Transmission Cover: To improve reliability, reduce wear and keep you on the off-road for longer, we’ve given the spur gear fully enclosed belt and braces protection.
  • Easy Access: Convenient maintenance access to the rear heavy-duty differential is via a scale-effect cover plate that’s secured with four hex bolts.
  • Scale Detailing: Realistic off-road style wheels, a spare, a roll cage, driver and co driver plus numerous other details make this the perfect canvas for adding your own scale accessories and making the Rock Rider BL a true one-off.

Very low initial torque, so not for crawling at all. Pretty fast but SUPER fragile. Very fun when it’s not broken.)

Helion Rock Rider Brushless RTR 4WD Electric Rock Racer
This truck is far from a rock racer.Incredibly fast on the street with just 8.4v nimh, though it lacks torque for starting on incline from a stop. Tends to overheat the esc, requiring a power off cycle. In a little over a month we have been through 3 center driveshafts for pins walking out, one which ate into the motor housing, 3 front diffs due to poor metal quality. Bearings fall apart on disassembly. The rear plastic hex adapters rounded off causing one tire nut to eat through the wheel. Broken steering rack. The motor mount broke out of the center diff housing. The well known chassis snap at the rear suspension connection. Upgraded to the aluminum which also bent on both sides in the same spot. The aluminum chassis suspension tabs need to be gusseted or reinforced. No gear sets available to lower gear ratio. Only aftermarket parts available are through hobby town/ amain. While it could be a great truck, it has spent more time disassembled and waiting for parts than running. One run after repair and the next thing lets go. Very frustrating. For $300, there are way better options with unlimited upgrade parts available. I would be happy overall if this truck was able to be upgraded with better mechanicals/gear sets. Bottom line the truck is too fast for its components with too few or no necessary upgrades available to compensate.)

I had mine for about 3 days. Haven’t been very rough but somehow the chassis snapped. Other than that it is an amazing rc and very fast.)
