The iconic Beetle gets a bit of a makeover in the form of the wide track GT16 Desert Edition. Featuring an awesome scale matt finished moulded bodyshell with details such as light lens’, engine detailing, mirrors and more the Desert Edition really looks the part.
But how about the performance? The GT16B features a shaft driven 4wd system with centrally placed motor, electronics and batteries for a balanced driving set-up. The ball bearing supported drivetrain includes full metal-geared differentials front and rear to help handle the power provided from the brushless motor and speed control system.
Underneath the bodyshell an internal underbody and chassis tray help protect the electrics from the elements.
The 8-hole weathered wheels and the mounted block pattern treaded tyres soak up the ground via the oil filled shock absorbers and wide track suspension. This is a do anything, go anywhere ride that really will bring a smile to your face.
With a 7.2v battery, charger and even AA batteries for the 2.4ghz digital radio included you can now believe that good things do come in small packages.
