Kyosho Mad Bug VEi 1:10 EP ReadySet 4WD (KT231P) Orion DDrive


The much-anticipated Baja Beetle flies off-road!

Advanced full-time 4WD chassis design lands right in the power zone!

This perennial off-road legend combines the famous beetle body with big off-road tyres for desert dueling form that cries out for action. With the scale realism only an officially licensed VW beetle body can achieve, the retro-futuristic style create a sense of real buggy racing. The high strength and rigidity of the bathtub shaped chassis features Kyosho’s proven full-time 4WD with deep stroke double-wishbone 4-wheel independent suspension. Metal geared differential and sealed transmission with one-piece pivot pins and lower suspension on each side produce exceptional durability and impact resistance. Each aspect is designed for optimal racing performance including the spur gear, which is fitted with a slipper clutch to protect the drive-train against sudden load changes. With a mid-ship mounted waterproof Team Orion motor powered by a waterproof ESC that produces a massive 35A output and waterproof KS4081-04W servo, the MAD BUG VEi is ready to take on anything and everything in its path. The set includes the 2.4GHz Perfex KT-231P radio system that auto-scans for open frequencies so its ready for action as soon as the power is switched on and also has the scope to manage detailed settings. Easy to use with stunning scale appearance and top-class racing performance, the MAD BUG VEi promises a dynamic off-road experience like nothing else!

One-piece ESC and motor of the ORION dDRIVE 2700KV brushless system delivers sharp acceleration and high speed with its simple wiring layout. Various settings can be adjusted with one button. Features heat protection and low battery protection function.

The stability and dynamic off-road running performance of the RAGE VE with its large 100mm tyres mounted on inch-up wheels and aluminium oil shocks has been turbo-charged with a totally new power unit in the new RAGE VEi! The ORION dDrive brushless power unit incorporates a one-piece ESC and motor that produces 2700KV to deliver sharp acceleration and high speed. With the core structure of the RAGE bathtub chassis, double wishbone suspension and large aluminium shocks, a slipper clutch protects the 4WD shaft drive system from the severe stress of off-road running for greater durability. Free adjustment of front/rear upper arms and steering rod allows precision setting of toe and camber angles. Experience the ultimate in off-road running performance!
