The Redcat Racing Sumo RC series is a set of cool 1/24 scale truck, truggy, and crawler electric 4WD models. The Redcat Racing Sumo RC Truck comes with a low entry level price, but has replacement parts and some upgrades available, too, including our popular Motor Minipak! They are small enough to be used indoors, but can be run outdoors as well on smoother dirt surfaces. Changing the batteries is a snap, which helps make these trucks a blast for kids to handle. The Sumos also feature proportional speed control, while many toy type rc cars have only an on/off throttle switch. The reverse gear is handy, too, so you can simply back away from an obstacle like someone's foot.
The Sumo RC truck comes with an RC131 motor, spring coil shocks, and 2 channel 2.4GHz radio. The chassis is made of tough plastic with bumpers front and rear. Model lengths are 167 mm (6.3 inches) for the buggy and truggy designs and 160 mm for the truck. The wheelbase measures 102 mm (4 inches). These cool cats are sold ready-to-run, apart from the 4 AA-size batteries that are required plus eight AA transmitter batteries.
The Sumo RC motor is powered by AA size batteries, so be sure to use rechargeable ones! We suggest rechargeable AA batteries from Tenergy (Tenergy 10308) and a Tenergy Smart Charger for AA batteries (Tenergy 01108) for nonstop fun with the Sumo RC. Click the accessories tab above to add these to your order. Note that rechargeable AA batteries can be purchased with different mAh ratings and the batteries suggested for best performance with the Sumo RC trucks are 2600mAh. The trucks also run well with 2100-2300mAh batteries. We recommend not to operate the trucks with batteries that have lower mAh ratings to avoid short run times.
The Redcat Sumo trucks are made in two colors, yellow flame and blue flame. Pick your favorite when you place your order! If you want two trucks that you, er, your kids rather, can play with together, no problem! The Sumo RC trucks and truggies now come with a 2.4GHz radio system to avoid radio signal conflicts.
Some people like to upgrade the motor and bushings on the stock Sumo RC truck. For these folks, we've conveniently packaged the RC180 upgrade motor, an aluminum heat sink, and a complete bearing set as the Motor Minipak. This can easily be added to your order at the top right when you choose a truck color. You do not need to solder anything to install the new motor.
**If you have older Sumo trucks or truggies with the AM radio and you need new crystals, we have them available upon request.** We'll need to know the frequency number that is printed on the transmitter crystal you do have. This crystal is marked "XTAL" on the left side of the pistol grip radio. Gently pull it out, check the frequency, then reinstall it.
