BEETLE 2014 KIT
Item No: 30614 - 1/10 Electric 2WD RC Car Kit
Classics Never Die!
The legendary Kyosho Beetle 2014, like its predecessor the Scorpion 2014, evokes the exciting spirit of Kyosho's legendary "golden age" machines that were constantly setting new performance standards. Credited by most as the cornerstone of electric-powered 1:10 scale off-road racing, the Kyosho designed rail-type chassis with its four-wheel independent suspension, oil-filled shocks, and a differential (the first car to include one). This series of rail chassis off-road buggy faithfully reproduces the features of the original car to honor the legacy of this machine in RC history, and at the same time, it's been improved and updated in subtle ways to optimize it for use with today's batteries, motors and electronics. There are also enhancements that allow you to use optional modern accessories to push this icon of RC history well beyond its original limits.
The Beetle 2014 Kit features an officially licensed VW "Baja Bug" style body that was very popular in off-road racing then and now. The cast parts have been tweaked for even greater durability, and now use much stronger 6061 T6 aluminum. The transmission is re-designed to fit 48-pitch metal gears and a new gear differential, and will also accept the ball differential from the World Champion RB6 as an option. It also includes a slipper clutch that is capable of handling powerful brushless modified motors.
Front and rear suspension arms are made from 6061T6 aluminum to realize improved rigidity, durability and lightness. Wide front tread delivers superior driving stability.
Includes two-piece diecast aluminum gearbox with built-in diff gears. Included slipper clutch can be set according to various surface types and conditions.
Sintered alloy and nylon combine in 48 pitch gears to deliver superior efficiency. Includes two gears for high-speed and low-speed settings. Ball differential is also available as an optional upgrade.
Main frame, front & rear shock stays and sub frame plate are made from 6061T6 aluminum. Underside of chassis is countersunk for a flat finish.
Aluminum cylinders and stainless shafts in the oil shocks produce excellent damping. Delivers smooth movement through the entire stroke range.
Unique Baja style is recreated with advanced high-grip compound tires with new tread pattern. Rear tires are equipped with inner sponges and the one-piece structure of wheels realizes lighter weight.
Radio box design takes care of cable management and is suitable for the shapes and sizes of most current batteries.
Includes easily attached tubular front bumper and newly designed rear body mounts. Enjoy the freedom of true racing buggy performance.
