You flip the switch and drop the fully charged Redcat Racing Blackout XTE to the ground. Clutching the pistol grip in your left hand, you squeeze the foam steering wheel with the finger tips of your right hand. Your eyes squint as you focus on the path ahead. Squeezing the trigger, you hold your breath as dirt replaces the air around you. All of life’s worries fade away as you focus on the path directly before you. Your peripheral vision blurs as the only thing that seems to matter, in that moment, is the precision of your steering and the finesse of the trigger.
You accurately steer the Blackout XTE 4WD monster truck exactly where you want it to go. Excellent performance and innovative chassis design make the Blackout XTE a unique vehicle. Its chassis utilizes many swappable components such as; suspension arms, steering hubs, hub carriers, turn buckles, gear boxes, differentials, and body posts. Each of the four suspension arms on the Blackout XTE can be used at any corner of the chassis. That’s right, one lower suspension arm will work on the front-left, front-right/ rear-left, or rear-right of the vehicle. The same is true for the upper suspension arms and steering hubs. The hub carriers are interchangeable front to rear, as are the bumpers, diffs, gear boxes, body mounts, and turn buckles.
Equipped with a powerful 550 brushed electric motor, waterproof 40A brushed ESC, 7.2V 3000mAh NiMH battery pack, NiMH charger, and 2.4GHz radio system, the Blackout XTE is pre-assembled and ready to run. This incredible vehicle provides loads of excitement, at an affordable price, while continuing to save you time and money in spare parts.
Oil filled coil over shocks and four wheel independent suspension allow the Blackout XTE to keep its composure over rough terrain, as you’re blasting around the yard, vacant lot, or race track.
As the battery nears the end of its charge, you pull the Blackout XTE to your feet. Your finger tips slowly loosen their grip, your chest relaxes, and you hear the sound of air releasing from your lungs. It’s as if all of reality begins to surround you once more. In that moment, you know that you have just experienced the Blackout. Get your Redcat Racing Blackout XTE today!
