Vaterra RC Licensed Ford Raptor 4WD Pre-Runner RTR

RCD Reveal: Vaterra RC Licensed Ford Raptor 4WD Pre-Runner RTR

While I love all sorts of RC, I’ve been recently drawn more and more to RC based on real vehicles. The Ford Raptor is on my must-have bucket list (both RC and 1:1 scale) and it appears today is the day I can cross at least one of those off the list! Thankfully Greg was in a meeting when Vaterra’s big-box-of-Raptor showed up so I quickly scooped it up and took some photos. Not only did they hit the mark with the styling, they added a bit of flare by giving it the Pre-Runner look. They’ve also based the chassis off the Halix which not only features 4WD and a pretty stout suspension system, it also comes equipped with waterproof electronics and, get this, the ability to hit speeds of over 55mph. I can’t wait to get this sucker juiced up and hitting the streets (and rocks and dirt and…). If you’re a Ford Raptor fan, this just might be the truck for you!
