Get ready to be bitten by the Rattler! The H-King Rattler 1/8 4WD Buggy is a fantastic value for money 1/8 basher for anyone who wants some land-based fun. Because everything is so super simple on this buggy it will take a lickin' and come out kickin' for hours and hours. It is made from lightweight fiber reinforced plastics which make it quick off the mark and able to handle the rigors of even the most enthusiastic basher.
There are so many quality features on this buggy we couldn't believe the price ourselves; not only is it strong but it has metal gear diffs front, centre and rear, pivot ball suspension all round, threaded adjustable oil filled shocks, a dust-proof receiver box that also houses the ESC and servo to help keep your electronics in tip-top condition and even a steel spur gear.
The soft thick pin tyres on this buggy are made for the dirt or grass surfaces you find in parks or vacant blocks of land. If you've got a patch of grass or dirt nearby and your into fast fun with a few bumps and jumps thrown in for laughs then this is the buggy for you.
With the new 60A ESC and improved 2700KV motor you can confidently run this buggy on 3S, but be warned, the Rattler is deceptive, on 2S it is quick enough for most, but on 3S it's really venomous.

Car is good speed on 2S Lipo, dont do a lot of jumping just in the dirt, so I'm pretty easy on it. I believe the ESC needs a fan on it because it can get quite warm when your going hard. Can complain for the price.The Rattler looks good, performs okay for the price, but is disappointingly weak. I literally got one hours use from it on an open aerodrome before its front left and rear right arms snapped. No jumping, just from bumps on the ground. The parts that need replacing are on backorder from the Global warehouse, so I doubt I'll get to use it again for a month or more. Pretty disappointed.
Aluminium upgrades or better stock in international warehouses might have made it less of a blow, but unfortunately thats not the case.
My personal advise would be to buy arms and associated parts when you buy the carExcellent for the price will buy another
