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 truggy 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.
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 pinion gear and replace it with the 49T diff and 12T pinion gear included in the box that is designed to run with 6S batteries 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.
This is NOT a kit of parts it is a partially built model, it is designed for people who want to add their own electronics.
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.

Where to begin. I was super excited to get this truggy looked awesome and durable. Unfortunately I've had nothing but issues with it. I put in a hitec coreless servo and thanks to this plastic plate right next to the arm it knocked it off the servo. Had to cut a piece of the plastic off to make it work. Then the rear drive shaft... whomever thought to hold that down with 1 set screw, I don't know what you were thinking. I figured some loctite on it and it would be good. Nope where it meets the rear diff got loose anyway. Had to go to home depot bought a second screw and now it works. Then on the 3rd run the front wheel came unglued. All of this in less than 20 minutes of running. Wish I could highly recommend this car but I can't. Also the instructions are lacking. There are none to speak of. You get an extra center diff but no instructions. You get a bunch of parts and you have to figure it out from the exploded views. Also this thing really needs a wheelie bar. I know it was mentioned on the video on YouTube but no mention since. That was like 4 months ago. Anyway good kit held back by some bad decisions.This is a very nice truggy ended up breaking the front swingarm pretty quickly but you can get aluminium ones from HSP this truggy is a copy of the HSP sea rover ow and I would recommend buying some good hi quality tires stops it spinning out so muchit arrived well packed opened it up & was impressed by the qaulity of everything the anodized parts to steel pinion + spur gear very nice motor mount system means you can get a quick precise pinion mesh set up, put a 2400kv motor 120 amp esc 4s lipo, thing goes like a cut cat what a beast 3s lipo would be plenty, i would recommend this truck to anyone who is after qaulity for a budget priceWell done, received it 3 days ago with a 200kv moteur Trackstar.
Running good on 2S.
Insane on 4S, undrivable, but too much fun !
Very nice piece of kit, robust and feels like a quality product because it is !
