Introduction

Redcat has earned well deserved respect in the 1/10 scale crawling community by offering high-quality competitive vehicles at a reasonable price. With the Ascent-18, Redcat brought the same level of quality, performance, and affordability found in the 1/10 scale crawlers into the 1/18 scale crawler market. While this small 1/18 scale crawler may fit in your hand, it is extremely capable and boasts high-end features typically found in larger-scale competitive crawlers.

Features

  • The Ascent-18 uses ball bearings, instead of bushings, throughout the vehicle to ensure smooth operation and longevity, setting it apart in the 1:18 scale crawler market.
  • High quality hex hardware for durability and ease of routine maintenance.
  • The Ascent-18 features an impressive amount of steering. Its steering angle helps the Ascent-18 to pull through tight situations while navigating its way through gnarly obstacles.
  • The included Hexfly HX-M4K 4kg coreless metal gear micro servo may be small, but it packs a punch.
  • A 2mm flat rail aluminum chassis is the perfect balance of strength and performance. It’s lightweight allows the Ascent-18 to glide over obstacles while providing a rigid backbone for stable performance.
  • Portal axles offer the benefits of increased ground clearance and reduced torque twist. Metal portal gears, ring gears and pinion gears are used to ensure the Ascent-18 runs smoothly time after time.
  • The machined aluminum spools help to maintain constant traction to all four tires.
  • Smooth action aluminum-capped oil filled shocks ensure consistent performance on every trail.
  • The included 180 size motor is the biggest motor they could fit in such a small crawler. Additionally, there are already many motor upgrade options on the market today that will drop right into this amazing little crawler.
  • The Ascent-18's front tilt body mounting system simplifies maintenance and enhances its aesthetic appeal. The quarter turn locking mechanism makes keeping up with body clips a thing of the past.
  • The included high quality 2.4Ghz radio system offers dual rates, channel reversing and trims for precision control. The receiver and ESC, which are built into a single compact unit, keep weight to a minimum and also maximize this tiny crawler’s chassis real estate. Ready-To-Run (RTR): The ascent-18 is completely Ready-To-Run and includes all electronics, radio, rechargeable 750 mAh 2S LIPO battery pack and charger.
  • Inner portal axle box, outer portal axle box cover, servo mounting bracket, diff covers, front/rear upper links, front/rear lower links, steering link, center skid plate, and wheel hexes.
  • Servo mounting bracket, diff covers, front/rear upper links, front/rear lower links, steering link, shock bodies, center skid plate, and servo horn.
  • 7mm wheel hexes allow the driver to choose from many popular wheel and tire options on the market today.
