The Redcat Racing Gen8 V2 International Scout II is the latest edition to the popular Gen8 platform. Changes to the Gen8 V2 include heavy duty axles & portal gears, newly designed heavy duty axle housings, a flat skid plate, 25kg metal gear servo and updated body colors with clear windows. A quick search will reveal its incredible acceptance into the scale RC crawler community. With its amazing performance, straight out of the box, the Gen8 V2 appeals to both the RTR enthusiasts, as well as to the custom build community.
The Gen8 V2 Scout II is a highly competitive rock crawler that includes many performance features such as: 1.5mm thick C-channel frame rails, low center of gravity battery tray, centrally mounted divorced transfer case, portal axles with metal gear covers, 32 pitch spur gear, MOD-1 transmission gears, machined aluminum spools, front CVAs, 32 rubber sealed ball bearings, threaded aluminum shocks, proper Ackerman steering angle of 47 degrees, winch ready front bumper and frame mounted floor pans.
The Gen8 V2 features a highly detailed fully licensed International Scout II body, hard plastic grill, plastic folding mirrors, molded inner & outer fenders, shackle mount front bumper, receiver hitch ready rear bumper, and plastic rock sliders. The Gen8's body and bumpers are ready to have LED lights to be installed.
Portal axles provide more ground clearance without needing bigger tires. On the Gen8 V2, much of the gear reduction happens inside the portal axles, which means less chassis torque twist than traditional axle shaft driven rock crawlers. The portal axles provide 54.5mm of ground clearance and include metal gear covers, metal wheel hexes, and CNC machined spools.
The Gen8's over-built transmission and transfer case feature massive Mod 1 gears, which are designed for hard core crawling of the most grueling conditions. A sealed pinion and spur keeps the gears safe from rocks and debris. Adjust your gearing to fit most motor and driving styles with easy fitment of 9T to 23T pinion gear allowing gear ratios of 28.12 to 71.85.
Fully adjustable wheel base, adjustable ride height, adjustable toe angle, multiple shock positions, adjustable approach and departure angle, tunable suspension, and lockable adjustable slipper clutch ensure the driver gets the very best performance out of the Redcat Racing Gen8 V2 Scout II, no matter the course conditions.
