Remote control cars are getting more and more sophisticated. Redcat Racing’s International Harvester Scout II RC Car is a prime example of just how far these cars have come. Redcat takes things even a step higher with its Camo TT base. “The Camo TT’s high performance chassis features many of the same realistic driving characteristics of full sized trophy trucks,” says Redcat, promising that this is the vehicle for those that “dream of entering the trophy truck racing series.”
For the International Harvester Scout II version, Redcat uses shell inspired by the Rally version of the real car. The shell is done in a 1:10 scale and includes all the details, such as a spare tire along with flared fenders, towing hooks on the bumpers, and a classic blue paint job. There’s even a Redcat license plate on the back door next to the Scout II logo. The rally-inspired details continue with an independent front suspension and a solid rear axle. The remote control car also has a four-link rear and threaded, oil-filled shocks for the really rough terrain. If things are going to get even tougher, you can make use of the tunable suspension as well as the adjustable ride height, shocks, and gearing to modify this car to take on anything you come across.
The remote control Scout is powered by a 3300KV RC540 Brushless Motor and uses a waterproof 60A ESC/steering servo. It uses a 7-cell NiMH battery but can also use a 25 LIPO battery (the battery isn’t included). Equipped with large tires, the Scout can grab traction on just about any terrain, but the Camo TT was designed more for speed, and Redcat promises that “the TT may surprise you with how well it handles at high speeds.” It may not be the real thing, but this is one rig that will still be a blast to drive and own.
