Self Build Raptor RC Electric Truggy – Brushed Version 2.4GH

One of the joys of electric RC cars are the models you get to build yourself like the Self Build Raptor Electric Truggy. This is the Brushed Version meaning it comes with a brushed motor. You will learn all about that as you set about building this most wonderful and fast model. This buggy is so much more than the stunning looks you can see in the picture.

This is a high performance and high-speed vehicle that you get to build yourself. The building process helps you to feel more connected with your car as well as to learn how they all fit together. This will make it extra special when the time comes to race it round the streets or your local track.

Self-build Electric cars are great because it is where you start your radio-controlled education. We wouldn’t recommend a self-build Nitro or Petrol RC Car to begin with because of the fuel considerations but an electric model is ideal. They are powered with a battery that simply needs charging. Construction typically takes 8-12 Hours using the instruction manual which is provided. This is a very detailed booklet.

Driving the Raptor RC Electric Truggy

With a length of 410mm and a width of 330mm you can see that this is a wide vehicle which gives it a low centre of gravity and allows you to do all sorts of manoeuvres without flipping the car. Of course, it is designed for off-road so why not see how far you can push it? Its four-wheel drive gives you great power and control no matter what the terrain. This Raptor is a race winner.

If you are a fan of Lego then maybe this will take that interest in building things to the next level. While we love Lego nothing in the Lego world moves quite like a radio-controlled car. It could well be the hobby that takes you from childhood into your adult years especially if you progress onto Petrol RC Cars.
