Bullet Electric Brushless RC Buggy

This is the Bullet Electric Brushless RC Buggy which comes equipped with the brushless motor system. This is quite a new technology which in the past was only available for normal RC Cars as an upgrade.

This is because not only do you get the motor but you get the Li-polymer battery and charge along with it which together cost a good few hundred pounds. However the 1:16 brushless models came along which only require a small motor which enabled the price to be dropped to a more affordable level.

As a result this technology is now included in the fantastic Bullet Electric Brushless Remote Controlled Car. With its brushless motor and 11.1V Li-Polymer battery this thing goes at a speed you would expect from a car named Bullet and all at a very competitive price.

This particular Bullet Electric Buggy is a true speed machine giving great performance to anyone who drives her. It has a unique narrow chassis and has fitted as standard sway bars which allow this model to perform well whether on tarmac or not.

The four wheel drive system has both front and rear differentials, which because of the even distribution means real power making the Bullet a model that can win races.

This model has a motor that is far quicker than many other models available. The brushless motor meals that no maintenance is needed yet can still handle large amounts of power and give great performance.

The powerful 11.1v lithium battery which is not found in most standard cars gives a much better performance than the usual 7.2v Ni-Cd batteries.It comes with everything you will need to get started with exception of the 8 AA batteries which are needed for the radio handset. It is powerful and will require some skill or experience to control it and is therefore recommended for the over fourteens.

Features

  • 1/10 Scale brushless powered car
  • Fully ball raced
  • 4WD Shaft drive system
  • Extreme power brushless motor
  • High torque servo

XSTR Electric RC Buggy with 2.4Ghz Radio Equipment

One amazing looking RC Buggy, heres the XSTR electric remote controlled model with a design that’s has some great upgradable options also available.

This is not an entry level car but instead a real RC racing buggy with a solid design of aluminium centre drive shaft, a waterproof speed controller that’s pretty high spec, a 540 motor for amazing power and as with many other RC buggies, capped oil filled aluminium shock absorbers.

Additionally you have an aluminium radio tray and performance based differentials so this XSTR is just one excellent racing buggy.

Look around and many electric racing buggies are significantly more in cost and can span hundreds of pounds in price. Not the XSTR, the low price on this buggy is an absolute steal when you look at the high quality as well as the professional built along with the option to upgrade this to a significant degree.

The combination of all of the features listed above give this XSTR buggy a tremendous amount of racing speed and power. However if you wish to take things even further than you can upgrade this buggy to a brushless motor, ESC and Li-po battery.

Add these on yourself once purchased and you will find an evener quicker buggy to blow you away but also the skill required is something to bear in mind.

Controlling the buggy you have a 2.4Ghz radio equipment which as you may know allows other RC racers in the area all being able to control your model without any interference.

Dimensions wise this buggy comes in at 41cm x 25cm x 16cm (length, width, height) with a waterproof servo and the receiver that’s been designed to help eliminate water getting into the body of this vehicle when racing on a wet track and puddles.

Due to the heat produces by the 540 motor, it comes with an aluminium heatsink to assist in keeping the temperature down so operates as designed.

 

Raptor Radio Controlled Electric Brushless Truggy

Until recently the new technology of the Brushless motor systems were only available as upgrades on RC Cars. Simply this is because you not only require the brushless motor but a brushless ESC, a li-polymer charger and battery which can all cost hundreds of pounds. The introduction of 1:16 scale brushless models changes things as they require smaller brushless motors and as a result the costs come down. The Raptor Radio Controlled Electric Brushless Truggy is a 1:10 Scale RC Car. It has a large brushless motor with a 11.1V Li-Polymer battery which enables this car to travel at high speeds and all at a competitive price.

The Raptor is a fantastic machine offering high performance and high speed. It comes with a one off truggy tyres with low centre of gravity which can perform well on or off of tarmac. The 4 wheel drive system with front and rear differentials allows the car to distribute the huge power to all the wheels making it a speed machine.

This model has a motor that is a lot quicker than many other models. The fact that it is brushless means that maintenance is not required and it can thus handle a lot more power being pumped into it. To get the most out of this car replace the normal 7.2v Ni-Cd batteries which come in most RC Cars with the more powerful 11.1v Lithium battery and charger. This model comes fully assembled with all you need to get racing straight away apart from the standard AA batteries which are used for the radio handset. It requires some skill to control of it because of the speed and power. It is therefore recommended for anyone 14 years old upwards.
