The R1 Rock Buggy is a shaft driven crawler that replicates the look of a high performance rock buggy, and delivers performance that makes it a capable scale recreation of the real thing. The molded composite tube frame features an incredibly realistic appearance, and red pre painted body panels. But this design does more than look the part, it provides protection to your electronics, and keeps everything safe when you tumble down the rocks.
Other notable features include tough universal slider shafts that deliver the power from the transmission to the unique 'Portal' high clearance front and rear axles. Plus, with a fully sealed transmission, the awesome G-transition shocks, and standard 2.2 size wheels, the Gmade R1 is destined to become a standard in the world of rock racing crawlers.
This version of the Gmade R1 is sold in ARTR format (requires electrics).
R1 Tube Chassis
The one-piece graphite axle housing is made of high strength plastic for maximum durability and easy maintenance. Inside, both front and rear axles have solid differential gears to provide a stronger driving force in any driving conditions. The gears are protected by a glossy metal cover for added scale realism.
R1 Drive Train
Portal axles simply mean the drive axles are above the center of the wheels. This gives theR1 greater ground clearance beneath the axles than other trucks using the same tyres.
The R1 portal gear offers high ground clearance and can reduce speed
The perfectly sealed R1 transmission is dust proof. Full ball bearings are placed at all axis of the gears. You can also adjust the gear mesh backlash exactly the way you want because the motor mount cap can be opened and closed for you to see in.
R1 G-Transition Shock Absorber
The G-Transition shock settings can be changed to suit your driving style, courses and terrain, these can be setup to run in Droop or Sprung suspension setup. This can greatly upgrade your driving performance. You can set up to run in Droop or Sprung suspension setup
