The HPI Crawler King gets updated with the new Ford F-150 Raptor body! Fitted with waterproof components, full time 4WD and super tough straight axles, the Crawler King can get over the steepest rocks and through the deep streams without breaking a sweat! Features include an HPI 55 turn brushed crawling motor, lipo compatible waterproof SC3SWP2 electronic speed control, a 2.4GHz radio system, grippy HP Rover rock crawling tires and, of course, that sweet Ford Raptor body.
Ford Raptor Body
The Crawler King is topped with an awesome Ford Raptor body for a fantastic scale look. The body is fully painted and features a bright red color with cool ‘digital mud’ details. It also features photorealistic decals so it looks exactly like the real thing as it’s climbing up the hills and rocks in your local forest or park.
Element Proof Protection
The Crawler King Ford Raptor features protection for its electronics and it’s ready to tackle wet conditions like mud, rain and snow! The 2.4GHz receiver is safely stored in an element-proof receiver box, protecting it in wet conditions to ensure glitch-free operation. The waterproof SF-10W steering servo and waterproof electronic speed controller complete the package, allowing you to enjoy the action on the road no matter what the weather is like!
The standard RC battery included with the Crawler King fits easily into a protected battery box at the front of the chassis. This forward mounting gives the Crawler King Ford Raptor the best weight distribution for climbing steep terrain, making sure that most of the weight of the truck is over the front wheels.
Real Crawler Suspension Design
One of the coolest things about the Crawler King Ford Raptor is that the suspension and drivetrain are based on actual off-road trucks! The 3-link design features 2 aluminum lower links and a single Y-shaped upper link that give the Crawler King tons of articulation, which allows it to get the traction down on the roughest of terrain.
Authentic Straight Axle Design
Just like classic off-roaders, the Crawler King Ford Raptor is fitted with real straight axles front and rear, which lets you put the power down when you need to. Most importantly, they let each of the tires contact the ground at exactly 90 degrees for the largest contact patch and maximum grip and traction!
Super-Strong Universal Driveshafts
Extending driveshafts form the core of the Crawler King drivetrain, connected to the central transmission and leading to the straight axles at each end of the truck. The rugged composite design allows them to transfer all the power from the motor to the locked gear differentials in the axles, to get all the power of the 55-turn motor to the tires!
55-Turn Crawling Motor
The brushed crawling motor fitted as standard equipment in the Crawler King Ford Raptor is the tried and tested HPI 55-turn Saturn motor, a true workhorse that puts the maximum torque through the transmission and into the driveshafts. The brushed design of the motor is perfect for tough conditions like water, mud and snow, making it perfect for long off-road runs!
Waterproof Speed Controller
The HPI SC-3SWP2 speed controller is the brain of the Crawler King Ford F-150 Raptor , taking the signals from the receiver and telling the 55-turn Saturn motor how much to spin. Its element-proof design allows the Crawler King to pull itself through rough and wet terrain, and the standard plugs let you use extra battery packs or optional motors in the truck very easily.
Universal Fit Body Mounts
Changing the look of the Crawler King Ford Raptor is very easy with the standard-fit body mounts! You can fit all RC monster truck bodies from HPI using the standard body mount holes, and the body mounts even adjust easily up and down to let you fit SUV-style and pick-up bodies, so you can update or change the entire look of your Crawler King in seconds!
Grippy Crawling Tires and Extra Cool Wheels
The awesome black 8-spoke off-road beadlock-inspired wheels that are standard equipment on the Crawler King Ford F-150 Raptor are wrapped with HB Rover tires – a crawling championship-winning tire featuring a unique extra-versatile tread design that let you take the Crawler King to amazing heights!
The Crawler King Ford Raptor includes a 2000mAh 7.2v NiMH battery, universal wall charger and 4 HPI Plazma AA batteries for the radio transmitter. You don’t need to supply a single thing to get driving! Simply unpack the truck, plug the wall charger and battery in to charge and install the AA batteries in the radio handset, and you’ll be driving in no time!
