Let's find your perfect bashing beast! RC Bashers are built to run fearlessly through rough terrain, excelling in endurance tests of all kinds - spins, sprints, jumps and wheelies. If you were born to bash, you've come to the right place.

Born to Bash

You're holding a radio-control transmitter in your fist. There's a hot-looking four-wheeler at your feet. Out front, you see nothing but rugged, untraveled terrain. What do you do?

You're a basher, so it's obvious — punch that throttle and cut some tracks!

RC driving is often divided into two types: racing and bashing. Racers like rules. For RC bashers, anything goes. Almost any RC car or truck can be a basher model, the sturdier the better. Run it fearlessly into the rough, through spins and sprints, jumps and wheelies, endurance tests of all kinds…just you and your RC basher against the world.

Horizon Hobby has many radio-control vehicles that are perfect for this kind of free-for-all fun. If you were born to bash, you've come to the right place. Let's find your perfect bashing beast!
