ABOUT THE CHASSIS
Named for a pair of infamous off-road trails in California’s Mojave Desert, the Twin Hammers rock racer epitomizes the spirit of 4WD adventure. This kit version lets experienced RC drivers build the vehicle to their specifications, using the electronics and power system of their choice. It also takes the performance of this proven platform to the next level by including the option parts that have been most popular with the RTR version. These would include options like licensed Interco Super Swamper Tyres, a front locker, heavy duty front axle outdrives and more.
Twin Hammers is a new form of R/C Off-Road All Terrain Vehicle. A hybrid that draws upon its heritage out in the wilderness and amongst the canyons and Valleys of Mohave. A true Rock Racer, designed to traverse the flat open expanse of desert floor before scrambling over obstacles and clambering through rock strewn passes, blast Twin Hammers across the plains in its high range four wheel drive transmission before slamming it into low-range to execute the perfect crawl or clamber.
Aggressively styled with is multi-piece lexan body panels and a polymer tuber-style exo-skeletal roll cage, Twin Hammers is contemporary amongst current class-1 off-road buggies. It’s low hood line is made possible thanks to the cantilever and push-rod front suspension which enables the coil-over oil dampers to be horizontally mounted away from the dirt and debris without sacrificing any of its essential wheel travel. Independent Front Suspension is provided via single wishbone and adjustable upper links, which endow Twin Hammers with dramatically improved handling characteristics over Rigs with a typical centrally pivoting trailing link arrangement. At the rear, true four-position link suspension enables incredible articulation of the solid rear axle whilst coil-over oil filled dampers provides the control to help scramble and clamber over the toughest of obstacles.
Build your rig the way you want and paint it in your own scheme and get out there and tear it up with this true rock racer.
