About the Gen8 International Scout II
The Gen8 International Scout II is the first fully original Redcat vehicle, designed and developed, in entirety, in the U.S.A.
The Gen8 includes high end features like portal axles, front and rear CNC machined spools, divorced transfer case, adjustable wheelbase, licensed International Scout II body with a rigid mounting system, 1.5mm C-Channel chassis frame rails, aluminum threaded shocks, precision steering with panhard bar and proper ackerman angle, licensed Interco Super Swamper tires with 1.9 beadlock rims, LED ready headlight and taillight buckets, rubber sealed ball bearings, and a 61º approach angle.
The Gen8 went through strenuous beta testing before its release, with the help of the RC community, and is one capable rig. With its great performance characteristics, high quality parts, and low price point, the Gen8 RTR vehicle is already an incredible value.
If you haven’t seen the Gen8 in action yet, be sure to check out one of the videos found on the Gen8 product page, redcatracing.com/Gen8, or on the Redcat Racing youtube channel, youtube.com/user/RedcatRacing.
