Without doubt some of the current crop of r/c scale crawlers and trail vehicles are amazingly detailed. Whether it is a self-assembly kit or a ready-to-run model, the scale finishing is breath taking. However with this comes a price and for beginners looking to enter the r/c hobby for the first time, these expensively priced beauties can be just too much for some pockets.

FTX Outback Tundra

FTX have recognised this and with the release of their new Outback range, they aim to bring scale r/c enjoyment to the masses. The Outback platform features a twin rail type chassis with locked axles at either end for maximum ground clearance and drive, while the multi-link suspension provides excellent articulation to traverse off road terrain. The Outback uses a brushed 370-sized motor and 2/3A sized battery, keeping costs and overall weight down. The gearbox is geared perfectly for high torque, slow speed driving, while the waterproof 2-in-1 ESC unit provides proportional power.

Scale finished wheels and all-terrain supersoft tyres with memory foam help maintain the rigs drive over most surfaces. Front and rear scale looking bumpers come with pre-installed LED lights for added scale realism and with three instantly recognisable classic 4x4 body styles there is an Outback ready for you and waiting to hit the trail.

FTX Outback Chassis Details


The FTX Outback ladder frame is designed to look like the chassis of a real car. The C-channel side rail offers added stability and is bolted with cross members to aid against twisting or warping.

FTX Outback Drivetrain


The axle housing is made of high strength plastic for maximum durability and easy maintenance. Inside, both front and rear axles have solid differential gears to provide a stronger driving force in any driving conditions.
