ECX Ruckus 1/18th 4WD Monster Truck RTR


ECX Ruckus 1/18th 4WD Monster Truck RTR

The Ruckus Monster Truck is a favourite amongst many in the ECX line up, whether it is the brushed or brushless version. Now there is a mini version that is ideal for backyard bashing or scampering around your front living room, but don’t let its size fool you into thinking that it packs any less of a punch!

The 1/18 Ruckus delivers just like it’s siblings on both the durability and great handling fronts but unlike its bigger brothers the 1/18 Ruckus features permanent 4WD giving you more traction and control than ever before, thus allowing you to run on all types of terrain with ease. The shaft driven transmission transmits drive to both he front and rear with excellent efficiency, whilst the gear differentials help to control the power and deliver the drive with next to no maintenance. The transmission is mounted onto a nylon composite chassis that adds rigidity and durability to withstand even the most abusive drivers and the 4 adjustable, oil filled shocks provide great handling and adjustability.

An ECX 2.4Ghz radio system is included along with a waterproof ESC/Receiver combo providing you with the confidence to go anywhere without the concern of interference while the Dynamite power system propels the vehicles to surprisingly fast speeds when combined with the included 900mAh NiMH battery pack. The included wall charger ensures you are up and running as quickly as possible whilst charging your battery in a safe manner.

All of this is ready to run straight out of the box, all you have to do is insert the AA batteries into the transmitter, charge up the battery pack and you are ready for a mini adventure nearly anywhere, at any time and in almost any conditions.

  1. LIKE a BOSS Review by rowrow

    This is probably one of the best rc cars i have ever used. When I got this car I was a newbi and it held it promise of being a durable car. I don't no how many times I crashed it and it kept on going. Only thing is that it needs a faster charger. (Posted on 3/11/14)

  2. Big things in a small package Review by PAC Man

    This is a really fun and fast car for the size, and it has some get up, but I just wish it had lipo connections to add lipo batteries. Other than that I'm very pleased with this car. Not bad for the price. You definitely have to invest in a quicker charger because the one that comes with takes 9 hours for one charge which is insane. (Posted on 11/12/13)
