Many would put high regard for the Redcat Racing Electric Volcano EPX Truck, and with good reason. It is one of the most popular choices for people to get to add to their RC truck line, and many are absolutely ecstatic about the choice that they made. The remote-controlled monster truck has an amazing that can easily turn heads, and it can go pretty fast, even for an electric RC (it can run approximately 20-miles-per-hour). All of this at a very reasonable price, well as far as RC trucks go that is.
The Redcat Racing Electric Volcano EPX Truck is the RC Vehicle to Beat
So what makes the Redcat Racing Electric Volcano EPX Truck so special? Well, to start, it has a lot of important features to which RC enthusiasts are looking for. It has an electric 27T motor to power the mini-beast. This motor provides more than adequate power and energy into the RC truck to propel it and beat out a lot of its rivals.
For its impressive controls, users are able to enjoy its high torque servo, the 4-wheel-drive system, and the aluminum capped oil filled shocks. These also keep the truck to keep sticking on the ground or to the surface you’re racing on. This is great since it uses a lightweight polycarbonate body to make the Volcano EPX Truck lighter than most of its competitors but can still dish out a great amount of damage. The materials used for its exteriors have a lot of strength in them to handle all the rough terrain you plan on taking on.
Included in the package is the 7.2v 1,800mAh NiMh battery and charger but do take note that this is only for the car itself. The radio control needs 8 AA batteries to run and is not included in the box. Furthermore, the ESC, Servo, and Receiver’s bodies are waterproof which is additional fun even for those rainy days or wet surfaces. However, it should still be noted never to submerge the device under water.
While it does make for a ton of fun and excitement, not everything about the Redcat Racing Electric Volcano EPX Truck is pleasant to the eyes, or even the ears. After the first day of running it, the RC vehicle may create a gear grinding noise. This is a problem due to the pinion and spur-gear to be close to each other. This can be diagnosed if you know your RC stuff, but the manual does help you a teensy bit to rectify the solution but it does not tell you what tool to use in the process.
