2WD Tro­phy Truck Lay­out

RC Car Action - - PERFORMANCE TEST -

Kyosho went for con­ven­tional pickup-truck styling with the Out­law’s body, but the chas­sis is con­fig­ured like a tro­phy truck with in­de­pen­dent front sus­pen­sion and a trail­ing-arm rear end. The main chas­sis is a compact tub that holds a 6-cell NIMH or 2S Lipo pack, and of­fers some ex­tra ad­justa­bil­ity that’s easy to miss: If you look at the mount­ing points for the trail­ing arms, you’ll see an ex­tra set of holes far­ther in­board that al­low the arms to be steeply tri­an­gu­lated rather than nearly par­al­lel.

This un­der­side view shows off the scale­like sus­pen­sion arms, tub chas­sis, trail­ing arms, and axle/trans­mis­sion unit.
