Its amazing to think that a 19″x 20″x 10″ size box would initiate an knock-down drag-out brawl in the RC Driver office between Greg and Tony on who would build and review its contents, but RC4WD managed to make that happen. The new Gelande II truck Kit with Cruiser body set has arrived and its its scale goodness is off the charts just in kit form. Below we have a RC Driver Reveal gallery of the unboxing of the kit. The quality of the packaging is top notch, parts bubble wrapped, parts trees wrapped in tissue paper like they are little individual presents to their new owner, the body set is wrapped in foam and tucked into its own box, all quality from the start. Then you start to dig into those pockets of parts and find the beautifully machined components like aluminum frame rails, shock hoops, bumpers and more all anodized a deep black. You uncover the R3 Transmission, assembled Yota II axles and Hammer transfer case, all metal and assembled so its easier for you to install. The dual spring 80mm shocks, and metal drive shafts not only look great but will be functional too against the brutal terrain you intend to put this scaler through. Then there’s the body, the ABS Cruiser body with removable top, so you can go topless and show off the included interior. Steel 1.9 5-lug beadlock wheels come for all four corners with RC4WD Dirt Grabber tires and are ready for off-roading. If you can’t tell, the RC Driver staff is really looking forward to building this kit and hitting the trails. Keep checking back for a RCD Build Blog on this truck and watch for a full review in an upcoming issue of RC Driver Magazine.
