The Redcat Gen8 International Scout II 1/10 4WD RTR Scale Rock Crawler is the culmination of fifteen years of refinement, and is Redcat's first original vehicle designed and developed in the USA.

 

Features:

  • International Harvester Scout II: Officially licensed International Harvester Scout II rallye edition. Detailed body with molded grill side mirrors, shackles, fender flares, rock sliders and more.
  • Adjustable for Maximum Performance: Easily adjust from 312-336mm (12.2"-13.2"). Aluminum threaded shocks and 9 shock mount positions allow you to fine tune the suspension to suit your needs.
  • Portal Axles: Portal axles give more ground clearance without needing bigger tires. The portal axles provide more gear reduction than a standard axle, helping to reduce torque twist in the chassis.
  • Precision Steering: Chassis mounted servo with panhard bar, 47° of steering and proper Ackermann angles help to provide improved steering, compared to the Gen7.
  • Ground Clearance: The Gen8 provides 61° of approach angle, 73.4mm ground clearance, and 39.5° departure angle, giving it the clearance it needs to tackle tough terrain.
  • Innovation & Durability: The transmission features Mod1 gears, a sealed pinion and spur gear, and allows the use of pinion gears from 9 to 23 tooth to create gear ratios from 28.12 to 71.85. All this adds up to a more durable transmission that helps to prevent failure and keeps you on the trail longer. Plus the innovative dual slipper clutch design can operate as a true slipper, or you can remove the slipper pads and springs and lock the spur to eliminate the slipper.
  • Rigid Body Mounting System: Hook and loop body mounts eliminate the body clips to create a clean and realistic looking exterior. The body features multiple supports for a durable, rigid structure. Rock sliders provide extra protection for the body.
  • LED Ready Body & Bumpers: The realistic LED lighting hardware allows for up to 16 LED lights to be installed. The Gen8 Scout II body features four LED headlight mounts, and six LED taillight mounts, while the bumpers allow four lights in the front and two in the rear. Install the light system of you choice in the provided 5mm LED mounts and light up the trail when the sun goes down.
  • Licensed Interco Super Swamper Tires: Exact scale replica of the high performance IROK Super Swamper tire from Interco uses a patented Three Stage Lug Design.
  • 1.9 True Beadlock Wheels: Steel beadlock rings are securely mounted to a 1.9" chromed plastic wheel. A screw on wheel nut cover provides the final realistic touch.

Redcat Gen8 International Scout II 1/10 4WD RTR Scale Rock Crawler
Here is a review 5 months into ownership. This platform is great! I was looking to buy a 1/10 scale crawler with a front motor chassis and divorced transfer case. My initial run out of the box was satisfactory. It gets the job done and will be enough for most beginners. However, being the need to mod person I am I replaced the stock 17T motor for a Holmes Hobby 550 27T motor and with a stronger servo. The results are now exactly where I want them to be. Lots of low end slow grunt to crawl in a scale fashion, decent top end speed from the 27T, and stronger steering with the higher output servo. The higher turn motor made the start from dead stops more smooth and controllable. I am very pleased with this rig considering the price and satisfied with Amain's customer service.

I have had it for 6 weeks or so. I haven't broken anything, but I've upgraded a lot. Aftermarket support is weak. Truck is a bit big and clumsy. But has a great scale feel to it and is still very capable. This is not your average Redcat product. Fit and finish is not as good as some of the other players (traxxas and axial) but the innovation makes up for it. This truck can be run hard and is a very good value at the price point.

The redcat gen 8 is a great scale crawler. I have owned many different brands, and I have to say this is the best performing scale rtr crawler I have ever had. You can't beat it for the price. I highly recommend giving one of these a shot. You won't be disappointed.

Redcat Gen8 International Scout II 1/10 4WD RTR Scale Rock Crawler
Awesome crawler for $300. I did break a front CV joint on the first day out. But Redcat warranty is sending me new parts, and working on a long term fix to make the CV stronger. Excellent customer service from Redcat. They responded to my warranty claim within hours! After sending them pics of the broken parts they had my new parts in the mail that day! The Gen 8 is new, and all new products have issues. But Redcat seems to be committed to working out the bugs, and taking care of their customers. So because Redcat is standing behind this product and taking care of the issue, I give it 5 stars despite the broken CV joint.

This is a climber! I have not done any mods and this truck is one of the best I have. And I have a lot of trucks like Vaterra,RC4wd traxxas bronco and some customs that cost big bucks to build. The tires are great the torque is amazing and nothing really stops it. If I had to complain about one thing it would be the velcro that holds the body on it's weak. But you can fix it easy enough with magnets! This is also my least expensive truck. $300 bucks for this is a deal!! It's no wonder the hobby shops keep running out of them.

I ordered this and sent it back. It didn't seem that great just looking at it from the box. They just released
the ne Axe version when I ordered this. I will probably go with it instead. RedCat seems good and alot of people
like them.
