The Gen8 is Redcat’s first vehicle to be completely designed and developed, in house, in the United States. The Gen8 has rapidly taken the RC marketplace by storm. What about those who want to use the Gen8 chassis, but would rather install their own electronics, body, wheels, and tires? That's where the Gen8 PACK comes into play.
With custom builders making up a large percentage of the RC crawler community, We wanted to offer something this community could really get excited about. We at Redcat are now offering the Gen8 P-A-C-K (Pre-Assembled Chassis Kit), for those who want to run the Gen8 chassis with their own choice of electronics, wheels, tires, and body. The Gen8 PACK already includes many of the features custom builders look for, and is ready to be transformed into a high performance, one of a kind, custom rig.
The Gen8 PACK uses the same chassis that makes the Gen8 International® Scout II RTR vehicle so great. The Gen8 PACK is a highly competitive professional rock crawler chassis that includes many high performance design features, such as: C-channel frame rails, low center of gravity battery tray, centrally mounted divorced transfer case, lockable slipper clutch, portal axles with metal gear covers, MOD-1 gears, machined aluminum spools, front CVAs, 32 rubber-sealed ball bearings, threaded aluminum shocks, 47º steering blocks with proper Ackerman, Panhard bar, LED-ready bumpers, winch-ready front bumper, and frame mounted floor pans.
The Gen8 PACK uses portal axles with 47º of steering to help the vehicle maneuver tight spaces. The additional ground clearance offered by the portal axles allows the Gen8 to roll over obstacles, that might normally hang up other vehicles with traditional axles.
