RDS 1/10 2WD Ready to Run Brushless Drift Car Orange


The Redcat RDS 1/10 2WD Ready to Run Brushless Drift Car is designed for peak performance on many different surfaces. The RDS is an advanced competition spec drift car that is a great choice for both advance and beginner drift enthusiasts. The carbon fiber chassis comes out of the box for polished concrete and p-tile surfaces. With the included brushless electronic, the Redcat RDS and prepare for some sick sideways action.

The RDS chassis is completely adjustable allowing the user to fine tune the chassis to best suit your driving style and surface. The motor plate can be mounted in three different positions, altering the car’s chassis roll and weight bias. This can adjust the amount of traction and chassis roll the RDS has on different surfaces. The RDS has multiple steering link positions and a sliding Ackermann plate, making it easy to fine tune the Ackermann. The RDS is loaded with tuning capabilities that will suit even the most advanced drivers.


The included RDS body not only looks amazing, but it is ready to accept an LED light kit (LEDs sold separately). With magnetic body mounts, this adds an element of extreme detail keeping those body clips out of the picture. The RDS has two front light buckets and four rear light buckets.
