    At a Glance

     

    The 1/10th 2.2 Rock Rey™ Rock Racer is incredibly versatile. Not only can it take on rocks with ease, this monster can bash over pretty much anything, anywhere. Through mud and water—at staggering speeds over 40 MPH. It features AVC® technology, too.

    Realistic 4WD Chassis with Long-Travel Suspension

    The Rock Rey chassis is a brilliant blend of scale realism with functional 4WD capabilities. The foundation consists of a 3.5mm, hard-anodized aluminum chassis plate that is integrated with a realistic roll cage made of super-tough composite material. To this it adds a long-travel, independent front suspension and 4-link live rear axle that look and function exactly like their full-scale counterparts.

    LED Light Bar

    Twelve brilliant LEDs on the light bar cast more than enough light for running at night without placing a huge current demand on the battery.

    Dynamite® 2800Kv Brushless Power System

    The vehicle comes equipped with a Dynamite Fuze™ 2800Kv brushless motor and a waterproof 130A ESC. This potent combination can handle 2S or 3S LiPo batteries (sold separately) and will allow you to hurtle across the landscape at speeds of up to 40+ mph.

    Sealed, Heavy Duty Metal-Gear Transmission and Diffs

    The transmission, as well as the front and center diffs, are sealed against the elements and engineered to handle the abuse of a high-output brushless motor and punishing terrain. MOD 1 gears further increase the durability of this off-road beast.

    Coil-Over Oil-Filled Shocks

    The long-travel shocks do a fantastic job of soaking up the energy from big bumps and jumps. They also feature threaded shock bodies with adjustment collars so you can fine tune the pre-load settings of the coil-over springs. External bump stops on the rear provide plush landings on the hardest surfaces.

    Waterproof Electronics

    The receiver, servo and ESC are all waterproof so you can run anytime, rain or shine.

    Easy-Access Motor

    The motor can quickly be accessed for gear changes and servicing simply by removing three screws in the bottom of the chassis.

    Easy-Access Battery Compartment

    A convenient battery door in the back of the chassis makes it easy to swap batteries without having to remove the body or wrestle with battery straps.

    Bolt-On Body Panels and Detailed Interior

    The bolt-on body panels are incredibly durable and eliminate the need for body posts that might spoil the scale looks. You also get a molded interior that includes a driver and rider figure, both of which sport racing helmet and harness details.

    The Full-Throttle Freedom of AVC® Technology

    When you’re ready to let the brushless motor off the chain, don’t hold back. The receiver’s built-in AVC (Active Vehicle Control®) system will work behind the scenes, making hundreds of tiny throttle and steering adjustments per second, so more of the motor’s power is translated into ballistic speed and acceleration instead of just flying dirt. An AVC adjustment knob on the included DX2E transmitter lets you adjust how much traction control the system provides. You can even turn it off.

    More in line the the Yeti at $519, wraith has 2 solid axles, FTX Outlaw is a similar design but cheaper.

    It says 519 but available at 449 which is much better :) 

     

    527mm in length us an average 1/8th scale monster truck so it's no small 1/10th ! 

     

    The fuse 2800kv is a 6 pole which should out perform a 4 pole senserless nice touch there ! Alloy chassis, mod 1 gearing jeez this just gets better and better the more I read it ! The best bit is finally a rock racer out the box with a bit of speed to it !! 

     

    Love it ! 

     

    Top of the list for 2017 ;)

    Sounds a decent spec! But the price, I've only ever spent that sort of money on Petrol RC, perhaps it's just me being tight but for that money I'd expect something a lot lot bigger, so on that note I wouldn't buy one.. Still, it looks good though :D

    It's what a yeti should have been! :dribble: :dribble: :dribble:

    Did consider a yeti ate one time but prefer the specs on this despite its marmite looks. I wonder how easy it is to access the battery tray? i.e does the top pivot allowing easy access?

    Ahh just read this http://www.losi.com/Products/Default.aspx?ProdId=LOS03009T2

    Its the same price as the Baja Rey which is currently £349 here so it would be a tenner cheaper than the Yeti which I'm guessing it's aimed at taking on but better speced IMO ..

     

    Rc pricing has gone a bit nuts of late but Losi seem to be the only ones keeping there feet on the ground IMO at the minute 

     

    If it hits the UK at £349 I will be getting one for sure ;)

     It's based on the Baja Rey so I'm guessing seeing the battery mounts the same from underneath

    The battery slides in from the back on the Baja Rey, I considered buying one a while ago, but it was a bit quirky with the odd battery tray, stupid battery connector built into the rear bulk and 20 screws to undo to get the cage/shell off

    I almost bought the Yeti XL kit earlier this year, that's the sort of price range I'm prepared to pay for a larger RC such as that, but not for one of the size in question such as the Losi. I think that's where I'd draw the line anyway. 

     

    I like the idea of the battery tray, the Outlaw I've recently bought either needs the cage removing or a fiddle with battery straps. I can get access to one strap and just keep the other (which is hidden with the shell on) slightly slack, that way (which can be the fiddly bit) I can slide in a fresh battery.

    Have you noticed the yeti xl is about 150 quid more expensive than this? They also say this is tenth scale but its a fair bit bigger as mydoddy notes.

    The rtr is no doubt, I was after the kit which is £359 at the mo, was £380 earlier in the year.

    Even if this is larger than 1:10, the YXL is quite a large truck, bigger than an 8th scale truggy.

    It's the same wheelbase as 1/10 SCT, which is pretty much the same size as a 1/8 buggy, as Mond says the YXL is much bigger :good:

    Yeah they're a nice size, for the price range in question I'd plumb for the xl kit over the losi. Nifty looking truck though, the Rey's too!

    I read up on the Baja Rey truck and recall there was a distinct issue with the supplied drive line bearings being of poor quality, failing quickly.

     

    There is a vague bell ringing about the size of the rear diff bearings being smaller than perhaps they should be as well.....

    Yep I read something along these lines aswell Im hoping that's been addressed on this, but a couple of bearings needing to be replaced isn't going to put me off not when I have an X Maxx that's going to need a couple of HUNDRED in parts spent lol

    I look at this, then the Outlaw, consider a wheel change, removal of the mounted spare, adding a nice light bar and suddenly the numbers don't stack up..... :017:

    From what I've worked out every solid rear axle RC from a Yeti, all the way up to KV.5 suffer from pinion bearing issues when you pump big power through them, when I had my Wraith running brushless i used to change the pinion bearing every 5-6 packs just to be safe :lol:

    I gather allot of that is because of the dirt and water thrown up into the bearing itself mixed with uneven pressure. I know the YXL one will wear due to that, and the housing itself warping over time. I did read that the baja Rey axle is a little thin but if things pick up, perhaps Vanquish will release a version.
