Default New VaterraTM RTR RC Vehicles

New VaterraTM RTR RC Vehicles

Horizon Hobby is excited to announce the VaterraTM brand of RC vehicles – a bold new line of ready-to-run RC cars, trucks and buggies created for fans of exotic cars and extreme motorsports. It encompasses everything from 4WD rock racers and rallycross cars to licensed reproductions of exotic sports coupes and American muscle cars. All of them are designed to provide the most authentic driving experience possible.

This focus on authenticity goes beyond detailed bodies and wheels to the actual engineering of the Vaterra vehicles themselves. Each one is engineered and equipped to be driven in the same environment as its full- scale inspiration. That’s why they all come with waterproof electronics and, in the case of many of the off-road vehicles, chassis dust covers as well as sealed drivetrains. In short, Vaterra vehicles are built for adventure in the real world where things get dirty and the weather isn’t always dry.

Seven Vehicles to Choose From
Seven Vaterra vehicles are slated to arrive by spring of this year, four of which are available right now. All include a SpektrumTM 2.4GHz transmitter, Dynamite® batteries and a Dynamite charger.

Default Drift tires for the Kemora?

Hey everyone,

I'm new to the forum and had some (probably basic) questions about tires/wheels for the Kemora. I just placed my order this morning and am wanting to buy some drift tires for it. The tire diameter is listed as 2.76" (70mm), wheel diameter 2.04" (52mm) and wheel width is. 94" (23.8mm). So far I am not having any luck finding wheels/tires matching these dimensions. Is this an odd size? I realize there are tape mods for diy drift tires but I'd really prefer a set of dedicated wheels/tires. Once again, I apologize if these are basic questions. I have been into rc planes for years, but this will be my first scale rc car. Thanks for any information you can provide.

Steve
