Hobby Plus CR-18 Builder's Kit - Harvest - w/Clear Body, Aluminum Shocks & Brass Wheel Weights

Hobby Plus

The HobbyPlus CR-18 1/18 Scale Mini Crawler Kit is the first of its kind. This builders kit offers unrivaled micro class performance thanks to included aluminum shocks and brass wheel weights, combined with the ability to build the model from scratch and a clear body that allows a higher level of personalization. Plus, all the electronics are included, so there is no need to buy additional parts! You get the same FPV ready waterproof electronics, lithium battery, transmitter, 2-in-1 ESC/receiver and 3 wire servo that is included with the ready to run option, making this kit an excellent choice for seasoned custom builders, or someone who has never built a kit.

The proven CR-18 chassis offers incredible axle articulation with minimal bump steer thanks to superior linkage geometry and panhard system. Aluminum shocks are included to keep the suspension moving freely. A super low 104:1 ratio transmission combined with a ring and pinion drive system provides the low end torque necessary for performance, without sacrificing top speed like a worm drive system. Finally, true beadlock wheels secure super grippy scale size tires over included brass wheel weights, allowing the CR-18 to stay planted while it navigates technical terrain.

The CR-18 kit includes one of three highly detailed clear bodies with classic lines and included scale accessories to provide a realistic look out of the box, while offering an ideal base to add personal custom touches and create the rig YOU want. So, whether you want to crawl indoors or out, or maybe just want to build an incredibly scale mini-size rig, the HobbyPlus CR-18 offers it all in a high performance, affordable and upgradeable platform with the performance needed to tackle the road less traveled.
