FTX Outback GEO 4X4 RTR Car Model Kit – (FTX5591GY):
The Outback GEO is perhaps one of the best model-crawlers ever. It has taken from the success of previous models such as the Texan and the Hi-Rock, but added necessary improvements and multiple new features, to provide the user with the greatest RC experience possible.
Its exterior is rich with comprehensive features, such as a roof rack, LED lightbar, a moulded front grill, scale bumpers with shackles and headlight lens’ housing. It also has the more day-to-day features, that help keep the model realistic. It has windscreen-wipers, door handles, mirrors, sidesteps, a spare tyre, chrome wheels and dustcovers, a winch and even a tool kit. Every little feature is made as concisely and intricately as possible, to provide the user with the highest sense of realism, whilst also maintaining excellent off-road capabilities and control.
The GEO utilises a split-transmission design, which provides a lower centre of gravity. Furthermore, the RC model is capable of accommodating interiors, providing better low speed torque, and minimising torque twist. The battery sits far forward to balance things out a little better, and the sturdy wheels help the GEO maintain control over uneven terrain.
What’s particularly impressive with the GEO is the internal structure. Its drivetrain axles and transmission are composed of metal gears throughout. These work in tandem with a slipper clutch which protects all of the mechanical features in the event of a jam. Aluminium threaded body shocks with dual springs also provide extra fine tuning.
