    FTX Rokatan 1/10 Brushless Off Road RTR

    FTX5496S - £279.99 RRP Due May


    When the roads have been destroyed in a post-apocalyptic world the Rokatan could be the savior as you drive across wasteland in the quest to survive. Ok, it’s a little dramatic for an R/C car, but you are free to let your imagination run away as you think about escaping biker gangs and tyrants with the new 3S powered 4wd Rokatan from FTX.


    With a weathered effect matt sand finished V8 inspired muscle car body the moulded centre chassis design, raised for improved ground clearance, along with fully independent suspension enables you to leave the road behind and motor across the wildness with ease.


    The Hobbywing brushless speed control and 2500kv motor, coupled with the supplied 3S 3500mAh Lipo battery provides amazing speed for a super driving experience from a model of this size via the 4WD shaft design and front and rear metal geared differentials.


    Front and rear shock absorbing bumpers and skid plates, hidden inside the bodyshell provide out of sight protection. Aggressive treaded pattern tyres, wider on the rear for extra traction are mounted to 8-spoke wheels and include a functional spare.


    All topped off with an LED roof bar for night-time forays, the Rokatan is ready for you to take on anyone that wants your rig!

    Chassis looks good, reminds me of a Slash 4x4.

     

    Bodyshell will be swapped straight away though, lol.

    It’s a rebranded Helion Dominus 10scv2 

     

    Strange choice by FTX? This truck was replaced by the Helion select four 10sc which was then replaced by the Helion Avenge 10sc/10mt. 
    The Avenge chassis was great! It’s now rebadged and sold as the Associated MT10 and Pro4 SC10.

    I’m a bit of a FTX fan with there chip and cheerful attitude but this is a step too far on the cheap and not so cheap at that 🤮

    The chassis doesn't look too bad and then sitting on top of it is a body that makes a Chinese toy car that has just fallen out of a Christmas cracker look good quality.  The only thing missing is exhaust pipe decals for the body!

    Agreed with what's been said above. The body looks awful, but the rest of it might not be too terrible for the price.

    Although it is reaching a bit, maybe should be closer to £200. But a 6kg servo in something this size does seem pretty ridiculous.

    hmmm,  im the only one who like that Mad Max body and cool wheels `?

     

    iS this a  slash with new Body and Proline wheels ?.

    made in  Deepest dirty China horror slave Factory.

     

    50a  ESC ? Come on ! Give me a break.. this is almost  1/8 size car

    , Put in 80a atleast.  100-120a better 

     

    6kg steering servo ?  COME ON,

    15kg servo is only 5bucks in China.

     

    Adjustable dampers in alu ?

     

    NOTHING is good here,  only the Body and wheels are cool. 😎

     

     £195 car maximum

     

    I want run to Valhalla.

    So maybe i buy this body and slam it on one of my old Slash 4x4 and buy some wheels like these  😅

     What is that wheelbase ?

     

    Looks wild and insane  ,. ME LIKE , i also like that these pictures have mixed alu colors, some are with red, some pictures have blue alu things.

    Do they send them mixed or ?  LOL

     

    Look also at that Huge servo opening at bottom in chassis.  This is exellent if you like to buy new servos after couple jumps in terrain with Rocks.

    How many servos you need change to this one per year ?

    This will be a good servo seller rig for shure.

     

    This time i understund what does 15kg servos in 5pack  at 25bucks are for in Banggood . 

    You need atleast 5pc Servos per year  as you drive across wasteland in the quest to survive in This wild thing  😇

     

    edit

    Pay for 1, get 4 free  Happy china servos

    Hmm, i am in the minority here as i like the look, would i buy it, no though i dont think its terrible value, if the shell was matt black then it reqlly would be Mel Gibsons ride in Mad max, but as said it has some poor area`s so its a no from me

    Is those ROKATAN tyres different in size in this 4wd car ?

     

    Smaller front, wider rear right ?

     

    I wonder if Proline stil makes the Desert Eagle Apocalypse bode still ?

    ftr.thumb.jpg.0eaeb566cb2422560adb90408bf7e998.jpg

    THIS One fits slash and others

    This Proline is on 2wd slash in that picture, wery different front and rear wheels,  actually pretty cool HAHA

    Not ok for 4wd maybe do this

    also you can paint it how you want, the best part of it

    I like it and I like the shell so there 😁 Price is a bit hopeful thought. I would have thought the warranty returns and failure rigmarole onf sticking a 6kg servo in, would make it just as cost effective to stick a 10 or a 15kg waterproof one?

    Haha this genuinely looks like something you'd see driving around in Rage 2, a completely-over-the-top, post-apocalyptic shooting & driving game. :lol:

     

    RAGE 2 - BG Burger Storm Chaser - Open World Free Roam Gameplay (PC HD)  [1080p60FPS] - YouTube

     

     

    My only question is this: Why another new 4WD platform? You've recently released the Zorro Brushless 4WD SCT! Surely that's the perfect platform??

    I quite like the Mad Max looks too. It even has LEDs for post apocalyptic driving at night. Agree they need to knock £100 off the price though.

    What is it with FTX and putting holes in the chassis around the motor or servo or any other bit of electronics? Do they like bits of gravel flying in and destroying parts? I guess it keeps the spares/repairs trade booming.
