For fun on all types of surfaces, the slick tyres are molded in a specially-formulated soft compound that delivers the perfect blend of slip and grip to drift through turns and shred the straights. The tyres are factory-glued to 12-spoke, 1.7" (43 mm) Redbull Racing V8 Supercar wheels for an authentic look.
The LaTrax Redbull Racing V8 Supercar is equipped with an impact-absorbing front bumper that protects against crash damage so you can keep the carefree driving fun going all day.
The LaTrax is fully assembled and Ready-To-Run with an included 6-volt NiMH battery. This durable pack features heavy-duty construction, 18-gauge wires and a Molex connector for consistent power delivery, and long run times between charges. A convenient wall charger is also included.

A "servo saver" is integrated into the bellcrank steering system to protect the servo gears from impacts.
LaTrax's 3-channel micro receiver uses 2.4GHz technology for long range and dependable performance. The radio system automatically finds an open channel so you never have to worry about radio conflicts with your friends or changing frequency crystals. The receiver is fully protected from the elements by the patent-pending weather-sealed receiver box.
The fully independent suspension allows each wheel to absorb impacts without affecting the other wheels or upsetting the balance of the model. Lower control arms and upper camber links at each wheel provide the correct geometry for superior handling and control.
The LaTrax Redbull Racing V8 Supercar is all-wheel drive for maximum traction and control on a variety of surfaces. A steel center driveshaft carries the power to the front and rear differentials.
The rugged gear differentials use a well-proven design to balance power delivery out to the wheels for precise acceleration and cornering.
The battery compartment makes battery removal and installation a snap. Keep extra charged batteries on hand for hours of playtime. The battery compartment holds 6-volt (included) and 7.2-volt (optional) battery packs
For the best turning response, the inside front wheel turns sharper (more steering angle) than the outside front wheel. The LaTrax Redbull Racing V8 Supercar uses two steering bellcranks on the chassis to multiply the speed of the servo and provide the precise geometry for the steering angle for each front wheel.
The LaTrax Redbull Racing V8 Supercar's all-weather electronics (patent pending) open the door to wild sliding maneuvers on rain-soaked pavement. Drive through rain, puddles, mud, & snow!
