Video Overview


The brainchild of the same visionaries behind the Mustang, the first generation Bronco featured a unique chassis engineered to drive boldly where the pavement ends. You’ll find that same spirit of off-road adventure in this licensed, 1/10-scale recreation of the ’72 Bronco. Its proven Ascender chassis features stamped-steel ladder frames, over 45° of steering travel and one of the most capable off-road suspensions available.

Heavy Duty Suspension

The chassis rides on a 3-link panhard bar front suspension and a 4-link rear suspension. All suspension links are machined from aluminum to handle the most punishing conditions. Oil-filled, threaded shocks soak up the bumps and give you a variety of pre-load settings.

Metal Gear Transmission

The single-speed, metal gear transmission is engineered for steep inclines and rugged, rocky terrain. Those seeking a broader range of speed and climb performance can upgrade to the optional two-speed transmission, sold separately.

Floating Battery Tray

The battery tray floats over the front axle and is designed to accept 96mm shorty packs. Placing the weight of the battery over the front axle gives the front tires extra traction when crawling over rocks and tackling steep inclines.

Crawler Style Front Bumper

Front bumper features molded tow hooks. An opening on the front bumper leaves plenty of room for a winch cable. If you want to try different 1/10-scale bodies later on, the bumper can be moved to accommodate most of them.

Heavy Duty CV Front Shafts

As with the rest of the drivetrain components, these have been designed to handle rugged terrain. They also allow up to 45 degrees of steering angle – more than most other trucks in this class.

Licensed 1972 Ford® Bronco Body

The painted, polycarbonate body is modeled after one of the most popular early editions of the Ford Bronco ever built. Scale touches include an injection-molded grille with headlight details and authentic Ford badging.

Sticky Compound Interco Super Swamper Tires

The realistic drivetrain and suspension are complemented by licensed replicas of Interco TSL SX Super Swamper® tires. Like the full-scale versions, their tread pattern and compound provide excellent grip at almost any angle.

Powerful Dynamite® Crawler Motor

The potent Dynamite motor delivers all the torque you need to muscle over rock piles and power through mud and brush.

Waterproof Electronics

The truck is equipped with a waterproof receiver, speed control and steering servo for driving in the real world, where things get wet and the weather is often less than perfect.

Spektrum DX2E 2.4GHz Radio System

The included radio system gives you the unbeatable signal security and responsiveness of Spektrum DSMR® 2.4GHz technology. The DX2E transmitter is compatible with any Spektrum surface receiver so you can use it with other RC vehicles as well.
