The Chevrolet K-5 Blazer is one of the most popular 4x4 vehicles off
all time. This 1/10-scale kit gives you all the hardware necessary to
build an RC version that looks and drives like the real thing. At the
heart of its incredibly scale performance is the Vaterra®
Ascender™ chassis. This innovative platform features
stamped-steel ladder frames with adjustable wheelbase, a metal gear
transmission and one of the most capable off-road suspensions available.
Frames with Adjustable Wheelbase
Steel, C-channel frames form the backbone of the Ascender chassis and
give you four wheelbase lengths to choose from: 12.36 in (314mm), 11.9
in (302mm), 11.4 in (290mm) and 10.95 in (278mm). Markings on the
frames make wheelbase adjustments easy.
Heavy Duty Suspension
The chassis has been designed with a 3-link panhard bar front
suspension and a 4-link rear suspension. All suspension links are
machined from aluminum to handle the most punishing conditions.
Oil-filled, threaded shocks soak up the bumps and give you a variety of
Metal Gear Transmission
The single-speed metal gear transmission is engineered to handle
high-output power systems and brutal conditions. Those seeking a little
more flexibility for different types of terrain can upgrade to the
optional two-speed transmission, sold separately.
Floating Battery Tray
The battery tray floats over the front axle and is designed to accept
96mm shorty packs. Placing the weight of the battery over the front
axle gives the front tires extra traction when crawling over rocks and
tackling steep inclines.
Crawler Style Bumpers and
Rock Slider Side Bars
The front and rear bumpers feature molded tow hooks. An opening on the
front bumper leaves plenty of room for a winch cable. If you want to
try different 1/10-scale bodies later on, the side bars and bumpers can
be moved to accommodate most of them.
Heavy Duty CV Front Shafts
As with the rest of the drivetrain components, these have been designed
to handle the demands of high-output power systems and rugged terrain.
They also allow up to 45 degrees of steering angle – more
than many other trucks in this class.
Licensed 1986 Chevrolet
K-5 Blazer Body
The clear, polycarbonate body is modeled after one of the most popular
K-5 Blazers ever built. Scale touches include an injection-molded
grille with headlight details and authentic Chevrolet badging. A set of
detail stickers is also included.
Licensed Interco Super
The realistic drivetrain and suspension are complemented by licensed
replicas of Interco TSL SX Super Swamper® tires. Like the
full-scale versions, their tread pattern and compound provide excellent
grip at almost any angle.
