The evolution of the Outback trail chassis hits new heights with the new Hi-Rock edition from FTX. As trail and crawler fans continue to crave both scale performance and scale looks, we have looked to address both with the Hi-Rock.
Featuring a new split transmission, the motor is now mounted directly above the front axle alongside the steering servo providing extra weight up front for better traction when climbing ascents. The steering angle has been increased to a 45° angle for further improved trail maneuverability. An adjustable drivetrain slipper can be set to protect the transmission and driveshafts in the event of a lock up, while internal axle and gearbox metal gears provide long term durability.
The split transmission layout provides a much lower centre section allowing for aftermarket interiors to be mounted for added scale realism. The moulded side chassis plates have aluminium plates on the exterior while the inner plates provide protection from the elements as well as mounting receiver and Hobbywing speed control. The moulded receiver box features additional plug in ports for LED lights and aftermarket winches.
The classic pick-up inspired bodyshell comes complete with moulded accessories such as front grill & LED light buckets, snorkel, mirrors, wipers, roll bar cage and spotlights (for optional LED’s). Front and rear bumpers feature mounted LED lights and tow hooks to top off that scale look.
Take to the trails and raise the bar with the FTX Outback Hi-Rock!
