The Helion Verdikt 12SC Short Course Truck, off-road buggy offers speed, durability and a value unheard of in its class. A 2.4 GHz 2-channel radio system eliminates frequency conflicts, while the 380 brushed motor churns out blistering acceleration and incredible speeds in excess of 20mph. Constructed from lightweight, yet strong material, the fully independent suspension and coil-over friction damper shocks support the chassis through off-road terrain.

The bottom-load battery compartment provides easy access to the 1500mAh, 7.4V 2s LiPo rechargeable battery pack with High Current T-Plug that provides excellent power and run time. Full ball bearings throughout the transmission reduce friction and increase run time.

The all-weather, 2-in-1 modular ERS unit and separate servo gives crisp throttle and steering response while the high grip, long wear tires keep you hooked up over a multitude of surfaces. Included is a balance charger and LiPo charging bag with a 0.5 Amp A/C wall charger that improves your driving-to-waiting ratio.

This truck is pretty fast, has taken a beating, and keeps on running. I'm about 5 runs in and it lasts over 30 minutes each run, going mostly full speed. I like being able to dial down the throttle in case my sons want to run it but they have the contakt truggy and love them. So far this truck is well worth the money.)

It's very nice running, and works fine. You can upate to brushless, is very cheap for this scale and have a beautiful design.)

Helion Verdikt 12SC 2WD Short Course Truck RTR
Got this truck after about 10 days. There was a delay in shipping but none the less I was greeted with a wonderful truck. Everything I needed minus 4 AA batteries for the remote. Nothing much for spare parts except a wheel wrench and a antenna tube. Looking at the radio and its very basic. 2.4GHZ with throttle and steering trim, as well as dual rate. It also has throttle limiting for newer drivers as well. Also included was a 2s 1500mah lipo. This was a big selling point for me because most rtr's especially cheaper ones come with nimh batteries. I'm glad to see that helion is with the modern age of lipo batteries. It also comes with a 0.5 amp balancing lipo charger with a lipo fireproof bag.

The car itself looks very good on the outside! Love the pre stickered lexan body! Inside I discovered a very narrow chassis and electronics all down the middle. Friction shocks, 3 in one receiver, esc, and servo. In the back we have a 380 sized brushed motor. Looking at the bottom of the truck is where you will find the battery door. It's one small body clip followed by a plastic pin to take the battery door off. There's just enough room for the included battery but not much else. Maybe a battery that's narrower than the stock one could be better so you could get a bigger capacity, but I was happy with what it came with.

I didn't charge the pack with the included charger but I was up and running in less than 5 minutes with this little guy! The truck is stable and handles very well. In fact the tires have a realistic squeal to them if you powerslide. One thing I didn't like was the friction shocks. Although the bounciness of the truck is somewhat comical, over the slightest bump the chassis slaps very hard. Perhaps some different shocks like http://www.nitrorcx.com/25p-l6022.html
not sure of the size of these shocks but most likely they are 1/14th scale or 1/18th scale shocks.
Also, don't try to run in grass. This goes for all mini and micro sized rc's. They will overheat. I repeat DO NOT run in grass.
But aside from that, this is a $60 rtr and as it is, it's wonderful for anyone. Plenty of speed, great value, long battery life, and upgradable!)

Helion Verdikt 12SC 2WD Short Course Truck RTR
I purchased two of these trucks for my two boys two weeks ago. One of the two caught fire the second time we used it. HobbyTown shipped a refurbished truck to replace it and that one quit working the first time we had it out. The other truck has stopped working now as well. I am in the process of trying to get a refund. These trucks are garbage. The price is really good, but it's not worth it in the end.)
