The Berserker 1/8 Truggy is for those who like driving on the edge of sensible and it has been built tough and reliable to make sure you can stay there. When we were developing this truggy our brief was for a model that was out of the box faster than anything we have made before and capable of doing that time and time again. From the chasiss, to the suspension, to the power system and even it's distinctive yellow and black painted polycarbonate shell, nothing has been overlooked to ensure it is the best available.
The Berserker is packed full of features that will leave the others for dead. To start with there is a solid aluminum chassis with aluminum front and rear shock towers to keep everything aligned and stable. High quality, big bore, oil filled shocks are used for the performance and handling you would expect in a high end race truggy. The sealed radio box keeps your receiver safe from any knocks and the huge soft square pin tires are a great balance of performance to keep you moving over most surfaces from rocky trails to paved roads.
There is heaps of power already setup in the Berserker as it comes with a powerful drive train with a super high torque Turnigy XK 4082-1450KV motor being run from the reliable Trackstar 150A ESC giving extreme performance. The ever reliable Turnigy HV 1269 servo will keep you steering the right path no matter what the surface is and is designed to take the punishment of constant jumps and high G corners that the power system is capable of supplying.
One of the most exciting features of this truggy is that it comes setup for use with 3S or 4S batteries but if you want more speed then you can change out the 46T diff and 18T pinion gear and replace it with the 49T diff and 12T pinion gear included in the box that is designed to run with a 6S battery to get the Berserker really screaming. Don't be fooled though, the Breserker is plenty fast enough on 3S for most drivers, exciting on 4S and...BERSERK on 6S.
The Berserker is simply the most exciting wheeled vehicle we have ever sold and we know you will feel the same when yours arrives and you get out there and break the rules.

I am pleased to say this Truggy was the right choice. It is tough and more than amply fast on a 4 cell. During the week I can blow off some steam around the neighborhood and still make a strong presence at my local track. I can drive unfettered with concern because Hobby King has indeed kept their promise of parts in US warehouses.
TIP - Put some thread lock on those screws!
