This incredibly scale recreation of a customised, 1972 K10 truck is built on the proven Vaterra Ascender chassis and comes ready for scaler competition with a functional spare tyre and wheel, waterproof electronics, aluminium panels and more.
This 4WD juggernaut is based on the Vaterra Ascender chassis – an incredibly scale off-road platform that is engineered for extreme off-road environments. It comes completely assembled and equipped with waterproof electronics so you can drive it anywhere a full-scale off-road truck would go.
Steel, C-channel frames form the Ascender chassis and give you four wheelbase lengths to choose from: 314mm (12.36 in), 302mm (11.9 in), 290mm (11.4 in) and 278mm (10.95 in). Markings on the frames make adjustment easy.
The single-speed, metal gear transmission is engineered for steep inclines and rugged, rocky terrain. Those seeking a broader range of speed and climb performance can upgrade to the optional two-speed transmission, sold separately.
As with the rest of the drivetrain components, these have been designed to handle rugged terrain. They also allow up to 45 degrees of steering angle – more than most other trucks in this class.
The painted, polycarbonate body is modeled after one of the most popular K-10s ever built. Scale touches include an injection-molded grille with headlight details and authentic Chevrolet badging.
The realistic drivetrain and suspension are complemented by licensed replicas of Interco TSL SX Super Swamper tyres. Like the full-scale versions, their tread pattern and compound provide excellent grip at almost any angle
The potent motor delivers all the torque you need to muscle over rocks and power through mud and brush. A waterproof receiver, speed control and steering servo let you drive in the real world, where things get wet and the weather is often less than perfect.
The included radio system gives you the unbeatable signal security and responsiveness of Spektrum DSMR 2.4GHz technology. The DX2E transmitter is compatible with any Spektrum surface receiver so you can use it with other RC vehicles as well.

Inside the box is a Spektrum DX2E steer wheel radio that is not only ergonomically designed to be comfortable to use but also gives excellent control and interference free running. To power the radio is four AA batteries that are sure to keep you going for many battery packs to come. The car is 100% assembled and includes a pre-installed 35T crawler motor and waterproof ESC . All that is needed to get the Ascender going is a 2S or 3S LiPo with EC3 connectors of your choosing (depending on how fast you want to go) and a suitable charger.
