We've shrunk our most popular RC Buggy model design down to 1/16 scale! Hobby Warehouse specifically had this RC Buggy designed to have great looks and powerful features that are not available from any other hobby store. Now with all green shock absorber caps, green internal aluminium parts and red chrome wheel centers to match the striking cover that make this little rocket ship stand out even more from the pack.
Each corner of this MINI buggy is fitted with an oil filled shock absorber and progressive rate spring to help keep this little beast heading in the right direction under the most scale like off road terrain.
Motivation for the Mean Green Mini comes from a powerful Brushed RC380 Motor. The motor is fitted with a metal gear which provides its power to a special nylon main gear that then transfers power to the front and rear differentials giving power to each corner of the vehicle. The 4 wheel drive system provides spirited performance for the novice through to the expert RC driver.
To help with additional cooling duties the motor is fitted with a color coded finned aluminium heat sink to help dissipate heat away from the motor and keep it running at optimum performance levels even in the harshest off-road conditions.
The 25A Electronic Speed Controller supplies current to the motor and on-board electronics with authority. Providing proportional forward and reverse acceleration along with correctly matched brake force, this ESC generates smooth and reliable operation.
The supplied powerful 7.2V 1100mAh Ni-MH Battery feeds this beast with as much current as the Motor and ESC will ever need to generate spirited driving performance together with realistic operational times. An Australian Mains battery charger is also supplied to get you just about up and running out of the box.
Steering duties are commanded by a HSP 6001 6kg "High Torque" steering servo. The servo is also protected from heavy shock loads that can be amplified through the steering components while operating in harsh terrain by a unique "Servo Saver" system. A special spring loaded joint is incorporated into the steering system which helps dampen severe jarring to the servo and helps extend its longevity.
2.4GHz Digital Radio Transmitter System
The "Mean Green Mini" is supplied with a quality HSP 2.4GHz digital radio transmitter which means you can run other vehicles utilizing the same system without interference at the same time.
The radio has forward, reverse, left/right along with proportional throttle control and steering travel adjustment.
2.4GHz Digital 3-Channel Receiver
The supplied 3 channel 2.4 GHz receiver is compact and lightweight and comes matched to the transmitter out of the box. This receiver also offers superior interference rejection and has a failsafe function that can be set by the user if signal is lost or transmitter voltage falls to low.
This HSP mini size 1/16 buggy comes as a complete package, including an ESC, 2.4GHz radio system, 4 wheel drive system, high torque Brushed motor, aluminium upper deck chassis, aluminum drive shaft and shock mount, oil-filled shock absorbers with progressive springs, 7.2V 1100mAh Ni-MH battery with battery charger. The only extra items required to get this beast on the track are 8 x AA batteries for the transmitter and your ready to rip up your favorite patch of dirt.
