Venom Group International proudly releases the Venom Creeper™. This revolutionary Rock Crawler was designed with die hard crawlers, enthusiasts and beginning R/C Hobbyists in mind. Hardcore Crawlers will love the innovative chassis design. Enthusiasts will enjoy its scale realism, and beginning and novice hobbyists will enjoy how easy the Creeper™ is to drive. The Kit features a stylish die cut clear Polycarbonate body that includes window masks and die cut decals.
The Venom Creeper comes in kit form, giving you the opportunity to build it from the ground up and quickly come to know all it's components and features.
Required Items To Complete Kit: Standard Size High Torque Steering Servo, Standard 6-7 cell NiMH or 2-cell LiPO Battery, 2-6ch Radio & Receiver, Brushed or Brushless Motor, Brushed or Brushless Speed Control, Paint for Polycarbonate Body
Front & Rear Locking Differentials- The Venom Creeper™ features a revolutionary Tru-Lok Locking Differential™ design with external manual locking sliders and an optional Remote Locker upgrade kit. Differentials include hardened steel bevel and spider gears.
Optional Remote Differential Lock - A locked differential increases climbing ability. An unlocked differential increases maneuverability. So what do you do on a steep incline that requires a tight turn? With the Optional Remote Diff Lock Kit installed on your Venom Creeper™ you can lock and unlock the differential on the fly using the 3rd Channel on your transmitter! Use two remote kits and a Y-Harness to control both diffs from the 3rd channel or a 4th channel to control them independently.
70° of Articulation- Articulation is king. Most R/C crawlers on the market bind up and max out around 70 Degrees of articulation. The Venom Creeper features 65 Degrees of Limited “Bind-Free” Articulation when using the Internal Anti-Roll Springs. Remove the Anti-Roll springs to allow over 70 Degrees of Unlimited “Bind-Free” Suspension Articulation. With that kind of articulation, you’ll get into and out of places you never thought possible with a stock competition crawler.
Wheel & Tire Specs - The Beadlox™ System features the first R/C wheel to feature a bead-lock design based on full sized bead lock wheels. While other R/C Bead Lock wheels simply smash the tire to the wheel with a flat ring, Beadlox™ Wheels and Tires feature a new elliptical tire bead that is “captured and locked” in a channel between the wheel and Aluminum Rock Ring.
Venom’s new Ridge Line™ 2.2 inch Competition Crawler Tires feature ultra soft V1 Tire Compound and new revolutionary Beadlox™ tire bead design. The Ridge Line tread pattern is built for rock crawling with its aggressive sidewall lugs that provide tremendous grip in tight spaces and superior side hill driving. Ridge Line Tires are designed to meet competition legal measurements (127mm X 55mm R 2.2in), so clear some space in your trophy cabinet and get ready to stand on the podium.
To scale insane rock faces, the tires need to deform to spread out and grip the surface. The standard foam inserts included in other crawler kits are too stiff to deform and until now, memory foam was reserved for expensive Swedish beds and option parts. The Venom Creeper™ includes memory foam inserts as a standard component to reduce tire bounce and increase grip over difficult terrain.
Optional Wheel Weights - The Bead Lock™ wheel system allows you to add wheel weights to each wheel to increase traction. Wheel weight sets are available in two different sizes: 1.3oz and 2.5oz. The 1.3oz weight set will add a half pound to each wheel while the 2.5oz set will add a full pound. Mix and match different sets to fine tune the weight of each wheel.
Internal Anti-Roll Springs - The Venom Creeper™ features four threaded body composite shocks with internal anti-roll springs™ to maintain a consistent chassis ride height and attitude while climbing. Use both the internal and external springs to tune rebound, compression, ride height and articulation for the perfect rock climbing set up.
Sealed Gear Box - Tough glass-filled nylon gear box with silicone access cover for easy maintenance. Inside are 5 heavy duty glass-filled nylon gears and 10 ball bearings.
A wide 66.46 to 25.78 gear ratio range for all kinds of terrain and speeds. Optional spur gears available: 46, 47, 48
VC Drive System - High strength steel drive joints and steel/plastic composite drive shafts for toughness and durability
