Ready to crawl with attitude? The Vaterra® 1968 Ford F-100 Ascender Bind-N-Drive has it all: working LED lights, an officially licensed Ford F-100 body and a caged back with real aluminum panels and spare tire. Take your love of classic Fords to the next level with jaw-dropping scale details. The cab is painted in an era correct two-tone color combo and you can customize it from there. Use this truck with your existing Spektrum radio and hit the rocks with full force. Your next adventure is calling. Answer with the Ford F-100 Ascender.
The chassis rides on a 3-link panhard bar front suspension and a 4-link rear suspension. All suspension links are machined from aluminum to handle the most punishing conditions. Oil-filled, threaded shocks soak up the bumps and give you a variety of pre-load settings.
Brilliant LEDs cast more than enough light for running at night without placing a huge current demand on the battery.
In other vehicles, metal gear transmission is an upgrade. With the Ford F-100 Ascender, it comes standard.
The battery tray floats over the front axle and is designed to accept 96mm shorty packs. Placing the weight of the battery over the front axle gives the front tires extra traction when crawling over rocks and tackling steep inclines.
As with the rest of the drivetrain components, these have been designed to handle rugged terrain. They also allow up to 45 degrees of steering angle – more than most other trucks in this class.
The realistic drivetrain and suspension are complemented by licensed replicas of Interco Super Swamper® TSL SX tires. Like the full-scale versions, their tread pattern and compound provide excellent grip at almost any angle.
Adjustable, stamped steel ladder frame rails set at a 290mm wheel base. The patented adjustable frame can be reconfigured for up to four different wheel bases to fit most scale crawler bodies.
Thanks to the metal locker, the vehicle won't "diff" out when one wheel is under load. And because of its low profile, the locker and axle housing is smaller and provides more ground clearance.
Natural elements such as a creek, streams and mud will not affect the electronics.
The Ford F-100 Ascender is LiPo compatible right out of the box and has a crawler mode that provides sweet drag break for steep inclines.
Bind-N-Drive™ (BND) is a transmitter-less option for RC enthusiasts who already own a surface transmitter featuring Spektrum 2.4GHz DSM Technology. This money-saving innovation allows you to add a Bind-N-Drive vehicle to your collection without the extra cost or clutter of an extra transmitter.
