From Redcat Racing:
Redcat is asserting their first able to run 1:8 scale path crawler, the Marksman. The Marksman makes use of the brand new Redcat TC8 1:8 scale platform, which features a scale physique, XR247 axles and superior electronics.
The Marksman features a 2.4GHz radio system, HobbyWing QuicRun WP Crawler 80A ESC and Holmes Hobbies 12T Crawlmaster 550 brushed motor. This mix is tremendous clean and extremely correct for low finish throttle management. The Holmes Hobbies Crawlmaster brushed motor makes use of a 5-slot rotor, for business main smoothness, and a 1/eighth inch diameter shaft. The Hobbywing QuicRun WP 80A digital pace controller is all climate waterproof and dustproof, has fifteen programmable parameter objects and has 9 ranges of adjustable drag brake. Redcat has additionally included a Hobbywing ESC programming field for fast and straightforward ESC changes on the bench or on the path. The Marksman doesn’t embrace a charger or battery pack and is able to working 2S or 3S LIPO or 5-9cell NiMH energy. Based on Redcat the Marksman was designed to work greatest with a 3S LIPO, however a 2S LIPO will even work.
The Marksman’s TC8 platform contains a entrance mounted motor, centrally mounted divorced switch case and heart mounted battery tray. This setup gives glorious weight distribution which gives constant dealing with whereas navigating a wide range of obstacles and terrain. The big 1:8 scale TC8 platform permits for better ease in overcoming obstacles with which a 1:10 scale truck might battle.
The Marksman makes use of heavy-duty gears in its single pace transmission with a gear ratio of 1.54:1 (20/13) and a 32pitch pinion and spur gear. A built-in adjustable slipper clutch permits the driving force to handle wheel spin when vital.
The centrally mounted divorced switch case makes use of heavy responsibility MOD1 gears and has a gear ratio of 1.92:1 (25/13). As you’ll count on from any high quality rig, the TC8-Marksman is fitted with a whole set of rubber sealed bearings.
The Marksman makes use of Redcat’s XR247 heavy-duty trussed axle housings. The XR247 axle housings embrace diamond formed central housings, built-in trusses and heavy-duty double shear mounting factors. A one piece pinion gear and steel spool present balanced energy switch to each the left and proper axles with a 2.91:1 gear ratio.
Due to the Marksman’s specifically designed excessive energy 1.5mm metal ladder-type body rails, this truck not solely has a stable spine, however the wheelbase may be adjusted to a size of 355mm, 361mm, 367mm (inventory), 373mm and 379mm. The Marksman’s heavy-duty drive shafts have steel ends for energy and so they provide the right quantity of telescoping motion to accommodate every of the 5 completely different size wheelbase configurations.
The Marksman’s suspension is dependent upon its 5mm heavy-duty steel hyperlinks with flared heavy responsibility ball cups to maintain issues regular. A set of 100mm lengthy journey aluminum physique, oil-filled shocks present persistently clean dampening. Experience peak may be shortly adjusted due to the threaded our bodies and collars. Every of the 4 shock towers provide 9 higher shock mounting positions for additional suspension tuning.
A HEXFLY high-torque 25kg digital steering servo is used to goal the Marksman’s giant off-road tires with consistency and accuracy. The HEXFLY digital servo makes use of anodized steel gears, steel servo horn and an aluminum heart case for constant cooling. The HEXFLY digital servo may be powered by 5-7.4 Volts and is waterproof, for people who take pleasure in navigating moist trails. The Marksman has spectacular steering geometry with a 47 diploma inside steering angle and a 32 diploma exterior steering angle. This mix of steering geometry and excessive torque digital steering servo permit this massive 1:8 scale path crawler to maneuver out and in of tight conditions.
A 1:8 scale path truck wouldn’t be full with out giant 1:8 scale off-road tires. The Marksman rides on an formally licensed set of INTERCO SS-M16 hybrid efficiency off-road tires, that are mounted to a set of 8-spoke licensed Raceline Avenger wheels. This combo not solely seems to be nice, however the SS-M16’s excessive traction tread design performs properly on a wide range of completely different surfaces.
Whereas the TC8-Marksman undoubtedly has the makings of a top quality efficiency path crawler, it doesn’t cease there. Redcat integrated many extra scale particulars into the Marksman’s look, giving the consumer the very best path crawling expertise accessible. The injection molded plastic driver’s head, with cowboy hat, sits on high of an in depth physique, permitting the consumer so as to add speedy character to their car with a couple of swipes of a paint brush. Different added particulars embrace LED prepared headlights, LED prepared off-road gentle buckets, plastic roll cage, practical trying non useful winch, rugged bumpers and rock sliders, internal wheel wells, spare tire mount and scrape away paint system. The Marksman is painted with a unique coloration high quality paint on the within and outdoors of the physique shell. This system gives an fascinating impact when grinding by way of rocky canyons. Because the outer inexperienced layer of paint is scraped away, a rusty steel coloration is revealed beneath. This provides much more realism and pleasure to the TC8-Marksman driving expertise. This will presumably be the primary time you really need to get out and scrape up your model new scale car.
