ABOUT THE CHASSIS
Glamis by Vaterra has been inspired by these adventures to offer the ultimate high-speed authentic off-road R/C driving experience. Evocatively styled as a two-wheel driven Sand Rail, this 1/8 scale buggy has looks to die for and a specification to match. From its mammoth engineered extruded chassis rail sections to its waterproof electronics, Glamis has been designed to tackle any terrain in any weather. The four-pole 3300Kv brushless motor provides near insane levels of torque to satisfy even the most power-hungry and wheelies can be popped at any speed for grin-inducing fun and adrenaline pumping action.
At the heart of the rear-wheel driven transmission is a Viscous Ring Differential that has been developed to help harness the power from the Brushless motive system and to minimise unwanted wheelspin. Corner entry is positive and with a deft flick of the steering and a dab of the brakes, Glamis can easily be hurled into a powered drift. Hammer the throttle hard and the Tetrapod-shod driven wheels grip aggressively to manfully tame the transferral of horsepower whilst the diff prevents all that power from going to waste.
Large, oil-filled shock absorbers adorn each corner and ensure that Glamis remains controlled whilst in contact with terra firma and the competition inspired single wishbone and adjustable upper link suspension has been geometry-optimised to provide incredible feedback to the driver and assure high speed stability and control at all times. Control that is further augmented and assured courtesy of Glamis's Interference-free Spektrum DX2L 2.4Ghz DSM radio system giving you the reliability and assurance of class leading 2.4Ghz radio technology in an RTR package.
Beadlocks, simulated running lights, roll cage and spoiler complete the Sand Rail look and provide Glamis with a level of authenticity that is missing from many R/C models today. But not only does Glamis look great, it has the strength to survive the toughest of adventures without so much as a flinch, meaning that it's the perfect companion for any high-speed off-road adventure.
THE GLAMIS NAMESAKE
Glamis Sand Dunes: A remote area of Southern California spanning some 200 square miles of open access sand dunes. A leisurescape for the adrenalin junkie extremists who make the annual pilgrimage in their thousands to revel in the sun and sand and pay homage to the glory of horsepower.
Be it on two wheels or four. Bike, Quad or Sand Rail, Glamis is a ritual; a tribal gathering of like-minded souls whose solace can only be had with their shared passion of monstrously over-powered, extreme off-road vehicles and their insatiable love of speed.
