Before drivers compete in the world's toughest off-road races, they
first get a feel for the course in a prerunner. Prerunners are
street-legal monsters with huge suspension travel, fortified
drivetrains, and massive power. A prerunner must be built strong enough
to tackle the toughest courses, while still being manageable on the
street. The Desert Prerunner packs these race-bred features into
a convenient, take-anywhere, 1/18 scale size.
Like full-size prerunners, the Prerunner is built to be fast
and nimble while being extremely durable and able to withstand the
rigors of all-terrain racing action. Equipped with a powerful motor,
independent suspension, and 4-wheel drive, the Prerunner is
Ready-To-Race® right out of the box. The all-weather
electronics defeat the elementsdriving through mud, snow, and water.
Oil-filled shocks soak up the bumps and jumps, and provide smooth
suspension movement over any terrain.
The 2.4GHz radio system provides dependable, long-range control. The
Prerunner is perfect for any age driver or skill level and comes fully
assembled, painted, and Ready-To-Race with the included high capacity
7.2v NiMH battery pack with iD and convenient AC wall charger.
Everything you need is included in the package.
