The Redcat Gen8 V2 International Scout II 1/10 4WD RTR Scale Rock Crawler is the latest edition to the popular Gen8 platform. Changes to the Gen8 V2 include heavy duty axles & portal gears, heavy duty axle housings, a flat skid plate, 25kg metal gear servo and updated body colors with clear windows. With amazing performance straight out of the box, the Gen8 V2 appeals to both the RTR enthusiasts, as well as to the custom build community.

The Gen8 V2 International Scout II is a highly competitive professional rock crawler that includes many performance features such as: C-channel frame rails, low center of gravity battery tray, centrally mounted divorced transfer case, lockable slipper clutch, portal axles with metal gear covers, MOD-1 gears, machined aluminum spools, front CVAs, 32 rubber-sealed ball bearings, threaded aluminum shocks, 47º steering blocks with proper Ackerman, Panhard bar, LED-ready bumpers, winch-ready front bumper, and frame mounted floor pans.

The Gen8 V2 features a highly detailed fully licensed International Scout II body, hard plastic grill, plastic folding mirrors, molded inner and outer fenders, shackle mount front bumper, receiver hitch ready rear bumper, and plastic rock sliders. The Gen8's body and bumpers are ready to have LED lights installed.

True to scale, licensed Interco IROK Super Swamper tires and functional beadlock wheels pull the Gen8 V2 through the toughest terrains. Each wheel uses inner and outer beadlock rings for maximum strength and tire holding capability.

Portal axles provide more ground clearance without needing bigger tires. On the GEN8 V2, much of the gear reduction happens inside the portal axles, which means less chassis torque twist than traditional axle shaft driven rock crawlers. The portal axles provide 54.5mm of ground clearance and include metal gear covers, metal wheel hexes, and CNC machined spools.

The innovative dual design slipper clutch allows the driver to set the slipper clutch, or completely lock it out. Locking out the slipper clutch is simple, just remove the slipper pads and springs, then reassemble. The GEN8 V2 includes a 32P spur gear and Mod 1 gears in the transmission, transfer case, and portal axles.

The Gen8's over-built transmission and transfer case feature massive Mod 1 gears, which are designed for hard core crawling of the most grueling conditions. A sealed pinion and spur keeps the gears safe from rocks and debris. Adjust your gearing to fit most motor and driving styles with easy fitment of 9T to 23T pinion gear allowing gear ratios of 28.12 to 71.85. The Redcat Racing GEN8 features a front mounted motor, a divorced transfer case, and 32 rubber sealed bearings through the vehicle.

The Redcat Racing GEN8 V2 makes it easy to conquer all types of terrain. The stock configuration offers users 73.4mm of ground clearance, a 61 degree approach angle, and a 39.5 degree departure angle. Fully adjustable wheelbase, adjustable ride height, adjustable toe angle, multiple shock positions, adjustable approach and departure angle, tunable suspension, and lockable adjustable slipper clutch, ensure the driver gets the very best performance out of the Gen8 V2, no matter the course conditions.

The Gen8 V2 International Scout II is highly upgradeable with many upgraded parts available, including numerose 3D printable parts that have been made available for download by Redcat engineers. The Redcat Racing International Scout II is a great choice for anyone looking for high performance professional rock crawler with limitless potential.

Redcat Gen8 V2 International Scout II 1/10 4WD RTR Scale Rock Crawler
Very nice detail body, looks amazing and has a very scale look. Tires and Foams aren’t the best, but do manage to crawl fairly well, but on every RTR tires and foams are usually changed anyways for optimal performance. Servo has decent torque and doesn’t show signs of weakness on the Crawls. ESC does fairly well and performs superb with three different Turnable settings, drag break works great. Radio is the weakness, doesn’t have good feel with driver and esc. I swapped radios right away with Traxxas radio with link module for multiple adjustments, this made a huge difference in feel and how I can control speeds at Minimal throttle. Overall for the money is the best bang for buck. Compared to my TRX4 Sport kit, it performs very well and looks amazing on the trails.

Redcat Gen8 V2 International Scout II 1/10 4WD RTR Scale Rock Crawler
My wife and I both bought Gen8s, she got the purple and I got the green. We have already had them on wooded trail runs, creek runs and a great rock/sand/hill climb run in an old silica quarry. The updates Redcat made to the version two of the Gen 8 are fantastic. They listened to their customers and fixed all the concerns and complaints. Double shear points, smooth skid plate, and a host of other improvements. The improved paint with clear windows is also a huge win. These have got to be the best bang for the buck rigs and can easily keep up with the much more expensive competition!

I have to admit, I was skeptical about buying another Redcat, but did a bit of research before pulling the trigger for the oldest boy to go crawling with me. I’m quite impressed with how capable this truck is. It seems to be built pretty well, minus a few things but I’ll let them pass because of the price. First time out, one of the rock sliders broke, along with front and rear bumpers where they mount. The truck isn’t great when it comes to very low speed, even when geared down to an 11tooth pinion. Upgraded to the Holmes Hobbies Crawlmaster 550 12T motor. With the 11t pinion it’s slower than the stock setup, but low speed control is much better, and it pulls hard. Also upgraded the tires after the first run to Proline Hyrax

Being as I have an Axial SCX10iii Gladiator, I think I would have been 90% as satisfied had I gotten this. For the money I’m not sure it can be beat. And of course Hobbytown ships quick as always. Thanks Guys!
