TOP LEVEL DRIVING PERFORMANCE

Realistic Scale Details

The EXO RTR features a variety of fully licensed, realistic details including Hankook Dynapro MT tires, 2.2/3.0

Raceline Renegade wheels and a scale Griffi n radiator.

Vanguard ESC and 2900kV Brushless Motor

Developed by Castle Creations for Axial, the Vanguard ESC provides exceptional power, braking and

adjustability. The 2900kV Vanguard brushless motor helps the EXO RTR quickly get up to speed and effi ciently

put power to the ground through the 4WD drivetrain. The complete system is 3S capable, which will allow

4mm Aluminum Chassis

The center chassis is made from 4mm thick aluminum for durability and features recessed

pockets to lower the center of gravity.

because they’re oil-fi lled they can be fi ne-tuned with optional oil. Each

differential features 4 sintered gears housed in compact differential cases.

Standard 32 Pitch Gears

The EXO RTR utilizes standard 32 pitch pinion and spur gears to

provide more tooth surface area for durability and effi ciency

to put its power to the ground!
