These kits are perfect for those who enjoy building models as much as using them! Forget Lego etc, these self build kits provide hours of fun and when they are finished they are actually fun to use! For the hours of use and enjoyment you will get from first building and then racing them, these kits are amazing value for money. If you are new to electric RC cars then buying a self build kit is a great way to learn about the hobby and see how they work before going out and racing them. We sell some self builld models to schools as they are educational and a great introduction to mechanics and engineering. There is no other product on the market that gives such a complete all in the box kit like this.
The Raptor truggy is a high performance, high speed speed machine. With its unique truggy tyres and low centre of gravity design the models performs both on and off the tarmac. The 4WD system with front and rear differentials evenly distributes the massive power to the wheels making the Raptor a race winner
Brushless motor systems are a new technology that until recently have only been available as upgrades for normal RC cars. This is because to have a brushless setup not only requires the brushless motor but also a brushless ESC, Li-Polymer battery and special Li-Polymer charger which are all very expensive and would cost hundreds of pounds. Then came some brushless 1:16 scale brushless models that due to their smaller size only needed a smaller brushless motor etc so could be priced at a realistic level AND NOW... We are pleased to introduce the full 1:10 scale Raptor brushless RC truggy self build kit. With a big brushless motor and 11.1V Li-Polymer battery these models are ridiculously quick and at an amazing price!
Unlike other self build kits on the market that only include the basic chassis and none of the electronics etc, these kits include all the components needed to build them! Brushless motor, ESC, pistol type radio equipment, grease, oil etc - everything is there, even the tools needed to build them. Construction will take around 8 - 12 hours on average and is recommended for ages 14+.
The special motor in this kit is much quicker than the motors found in other models. Because it is brushless it also means the motor needs no maintenance and can handle a lot more power being pumped into it. So to take full advantage of that the standard 7.2v Ni-Mh batteries that are found in most RC car kits has been replaced with a very powerful 11.1v lithium battery along with a balanced lithium battery charger which is needed for these special batteries.
All you need once the model is fully constructed is 4 AAA batteries for the transmitter, then you can let her rip!

Outstanding modelBy Lee June 16, 2019
Bought this as a present for myself and my son to have as a project together an I am extremely impressed, as is my son.
The quality of the kit is outstanding and it all came together perfectly. Had an issue with one suspension part and nitrotek sorted it without question and in record time. The instructions are easy to follow and clearly show images of every step and the parts used.
The car itself, now built is hours of fun, and extremely fast! Overall, the kit and the finished product are both excellent and well worth the money. I'd recommend getting a second battery for it as well to give you more time racing.
