The Redcat Racing Shockwave 1/10 Scale Nitro Buggy is built rough and rugged with a 2.67cc Vertex engine, single speed transmission, and 4WD. This can be a good first nitro vehicle for someone that is tough enough to race on an off road track or handle whatever you can dish out in your backyard. The single speed transmission is simple and durable. Aluminum capped oil filled shocks, a 2.5mm 6061 aluminum chassis, and composite disc brakes are also standard. Steering and throttle controls are simple and smooth with the 2.4GHz radio (upgraded in 2013 from a 27MHz AM radio).
The Shockwave nitro buggy is 400mm or 16in long and has a ground clearance of 26mm, which is just over 1 inch. With a fuel tank capacity of 75cc, you'll have plenty of run time per tank.
What else do you need with the Redcat Racing Shockwave Buggy? You will need a nitro starter kit and fuel, which are both available separately as accessories. Note the electric starter kit does not include a glow starter. To use the electric starter, you must first remove the engine from the Shockwave chassis and install a backplate. The backplate is included in the starter kit. You will also have to provide AA batteries for the radio transmitter. You'll also need blue loctite for screws threading into metal and filter oil for the air filter.
The Redcat Shockwave Nitro Buggy is a good dollar value package that many of our customers have enjoyed. As with other nitro powered vehicles, the engine must be properly broken in for use. This product is therefore recommended for ages 14 and up. Follow all manufacturer instructions for operation of the buggy and use the same fuel mix (% nitro) for running as for break in. Redcat Racing offers some nice tutorial videos for engine break in, tuning, and basic repairs that can be very helpful for new nitro hobbyists. We recommend watching these while you wait for your new Shockwave buggy to arrive, especially if this is your first nitro car.
Redcat Racing also offers a lifetime engine replacement program for their nitro cars in addition to the 90 day limited warranty they offer with all new vehicle purchases. With this deal, after the warranty period you can return a damaged engine from your Shockwave buggy and get it replaced with a new nitro engine for half price plus return shipping.
