This isn't a scale type truck as you can tell by the flat plate carbon fiber frame rails, this is just a performance oriented option whether or not you want to comp. Beside the fact, if you just want high performance you just want to try and do gnarly lines and big climbs this is a fantastic option for that if it's something you're after I'm positive that you'll enjoy this one. - Harley Designs

Performance Chassis

The VRD Carbon Kit's chassis is a testament to versatility and adaptability. With carbon fiber rails, it features molded components that provide tunable options, making it suitable for both beginners and seasoned rock crawling enthusiasts. Multiple shock and body mounting positions, along with stamped aluminum rock sliders, ensure straightforward body mounting and fitment while protecting your electronics. These come together and allow for a higher level of versatility over different crawling environments.

Advanced Suspension Design

Equipped with Incision S8E shocks featuring hard-anodized shock bodies, the VRD ensures a smooth and controlled ride, ideal for conquering challenging terrains. Heavy-duty stainless steel lower suspension links and lightweight upper links, along with the included 25T spline 20mm Servo Horn, offer robust connectivity between the chassis and axles, delivering stability and precision in your rock crawling adventures. The suspension system's tunable shock length and multiple shock mounting options provide the flexibility to fine-tune ride height and adapt to various terrains, making adjustments easy for both novice and advanced users.

Performance 4WD Transmission

In the center of the VRD Carbon Kit is the updated lightweight spec VFD transmission equipped with a lightweight machined aluminum motor plate and aluminum motor plate standoffs. In addition, internally the VFD is equipped with CNC-machined aluminum bearing plates and machined lightweight chromoly gears to boost stability, reliability and crawling capabilities. Each internal gear has been re-designed to be as lightweight as possible dropping the weight of the overall transmission while maintaining a high level of durability!

Ultra Low CG

The molded chassis components and skid plate help place the lightweight spec VFD transmission as low as possible into the VRD chassis, while the updated F10 front portal axle design uses an (AMS) Axle-Mounted-Servo and a 4-link suspension system to maximize steering output and enhance crawling performance by lowering the LCG (Lower center of Gravity). In addition, both front and rear axles come with weighted brass tube inserts and the front steering knuckles are constructed from alloy aluminum to keep the center of gravity as low as possible, which translates to a higher performance output and a significant enhancement in durability.

This was my first kit build. I absolutely loved it. The instructions were easy to follow. Great quality components right out of the box. I would only ask them to add a couple E2 clips in the spare parts bag. These kits were sold out everywhere around me. AMain had it to my door sooner than expected!

Came back to the hobby after 15 years and boy what amazing strides have been made in every aspect of this hobby!
This kit oozes quality! Fit and finish is spectacular, plastics feel very strong and solid and premium, and everything goes together very smoothly.
The only place I saw a drop in quality per se, is the manual. The dotted line that shows how and where the screws route would disappear behind a part making it a little confusing, or the picture of the bearing was very similar to another, but that’s it.
Otherwise the rest of the manual is fantastic.
Awesome kit and great price and fast shipping to boot.
