H.King "Desert Fox" 1/10 4WD Desert Racer (ARR) is ready for you to conquer the outdoors, you can start with the backyard and work your way up to North Africa and from there the world. This tough little rc buggy is built for bashing in the harshest of environments with a powerful 3000kv motor and tough 2.5mm aluminium chassis.
The Desert Fox comes packed with features that you would normally only find on top level RC trucks, such as a slipper clutch that can be tuned to suit different grip levels, threaded shocks for easy adjustability, two shock mount locations on the arms for added tuning, metal sealed gear diff and a powerful 3000kV motor. The sealed radio box and waterproof ESC mean you can run it in almost any conditions and the super soft, scale off-road tyres will work well on most surfaces from rocky tracks to paved roads.
Because of its roomy interior and plenty of flat surfaces, the Desert Fox is great for adding accessories such as LEDs in the light buckets on the roll cage or an engine sound simulator, it will also make a great FPV platform for roving projects.
With this Almost Ready to Run version all you need is a suitable 2S car battery and a 2 channel radio and you're ready to go.
The Desert Fox won't take any prisoners in the battle for backyard superiority and will make other buggies in its class eat its dust for dessert!

When I first received the Fox the gears sounded like it had sand inside and was partially stripped. After taking it apart and adjustments, it sounds much smoother. Lithium grease is your friend here. Also, changed the oils and added a small fan heat sink to the motor. Do not run this stock on 3s or you will smoke the ESC and or motor. I have a few motors on hand from other cars but am seeing how long the stock gear will last. I added 5 white LEDs for the Fog light bar and also installed a long range FPV system.It is a blast to drive around and am now getting alot more girls cause they know I'm a Fox now ;)When I first received the Fox the gears sounded like it had sand inside and was partially stripped.

just bare that in mind before you purchase.Good car nice parts just some parts and assembly leave a lot to be desired. I had a hard time trying to get this car to run straight. First I attempted to fix the servo saver which is worthless. You can't adjust it and it's weak. 2nd the amount of slop on this car is unacceptable. The rear wheel knuckles wobbled so bad that that's what was causing the car to swerve on top of the already weak servo saver. After tightening and adjusting adding some washers on the rear rod car is now working. Just know that when ur getting into this car... overall still good value just expect to put some work in.was disapointed at first as the supplied esc and motor dies on the first run but quick message to the warranty dept had a new one on its way and a few days later all was good again, takes quite a beating and keeps on going am very happy with it but spare parts need to be a bit easier to locate as the spur gear has stripped and i need to get another, all in all am happy with itEstou a adorar este carro. É um 1:10 mas maos parece um 1:8 é enorme. A velocidade é brutal e a estabilidade nas curvas em terra fenomenal!
Faz um pouco de ruido no arranque, situaçao ja conhecida mas não me incômoda e no futuro com um motor e ESC aco selhados pela H.K. ficará ainda melhor.
O preço é fantástico, estou a usar com um flysky gt3c. É seguro comprar para Portugal pois é enviado via Holanda. E ja viran este preço ;)I've received this car today, and i have to say this is a amazing piece for the money you are paying for it.
the alluminum chassis is strong enough to handle a good beating. i pushed this car allot, and i did break it. luckily it was just the plastic front suspension holder. and almost every replacement part for this car is dirt cheap. this is the perfect offroad car for a budget rc enthousiast.
in the future i'm planning to upgrade the suspension holder to the alluminum ones.
everything else is just amazing on this car!Recieved mine few days ago all the gears rattle like crazy and no support from hobbyking, they request me to send the item back on my own cost , and the shipping cost is same as i would be buying a new item, very bad, not buying again and not recomending this site, i have been buying for years from banggood and aliexpress always with excellent service but here nothingnice desert buggy its based on quanum vanndal but little lager than vandal
it can reach near 50km/h all the things are fine but esc!! the braking act so slow i changed it via p/g card but it just increase braking force not the timing...Just got the Desert Fox last night. Added my receiver and a battery and took it out for its first run. The gears jumped each time I pulled on the throttle, and the throttle response was slow. But that isn't the worst part, the ESC caught fire before I had even ran one battery through the car. I know this is a cheap RC car and you get what you pay for, but catching fire on the first battery is not good. Beware if you are buying this car.
