The HobbyPlus CR-18 1/18 Scale Mini Crawler Kit is the first of its kind. This builders kit offers unrivaled micro class performance thanks to included aluminum shocks and brass wheel weights, combined with the ability to build the model from scratch and a clear body that allows a higher level of personalization. Plus, all the electronics are included, so there is no need to buy additional parts! You get the same FPV ready waterproof electronics, lithium battery, transmitter, 2-in-1 ESC/receiver and 3 wire servo that is included with the ready to run option, making this kit an excellent choice for seasoned custom builders, or someone who has never built a kit.

The proven CR-18 chassis offers incredible axle articulation with minimal bump steer thanks to superior linkage geometry and panhard system. Aluminum shocks are included to keep the suspension moving freely. A super low 104:1 ratio transmission combined with a ring and pinion drive system provides the low end torque necessary for performance, without sacrificing top speed like a worm drive system. Finally, true beadlock wheels secure super grippy scale size tires over included brass wheel weights, allowing the CR-18 to stay planted while it navigates technical terrain.

The CR-18 kit includes one of three highly detailed clear bodies with classic lines and included scale accessories to provide a realistic look out of the box, while offering an ideal base to add personal custom touches and create the rig YOU want. So, whether you want to crawl indoors or out, or maybe just want to build an incredibly scale mini-size rig, the HobbyPlus CR-18 offers it all in a high performance, affordable and upgradeable platform with the performance needed to tackle the road less traveled.

It did not look anything like the picture. In the picture it had chrome roll bars and over head cab lights. Mine came with black plastic not Crome. The details was a joke to nothing like the picture. I could go on all day about body. ??? the truck runs great but the looks are way different from the box and what you get. Should have gotten the Chevy C10???

I have to say this is a nice little kit. The shipping was really fast on it. Is a product it's exactly what it says in the description except for it has a .050 motor not a.030 motor. So that's a great surprise and the two upgrades are perfect. The detail is really nice can't wait to drive it then I'll update later. Everyone have a great day and a great crawl... update I didn't realize this but when I was done building it there was no clips for the body. But this a great choice I would not pass this truck up. It has droop and crazy Flex for all the Box. I like it better than the scx24 I have when it was stock. What I'm saying is I am a very impressed way to go hobby Plus.

Pretty nice kit. I bought it so I can customize it. It looks and works great. Can crawl over anything and is built tough. Really slow though. I wish there were more options for more speed. It is super torquey and needs geared up in my opinion. Battery lasts a long time, but motor gets really hot. Needs a bigger, less turn motor. Then it'd be 5 stars.
