Dump trucks earn their living in some of the toughest workplaces around: large-scale construction sites, mines and quarries to name but a few. This R/C model assembly kit has a unique and exciting color scheme: rather than the yellow typical of such construction vehicles, it is black-based with numerous chrome-plated parts. The cab and rear bed are molded in black, and metallic stickers are provided to depict logos and markings including stud and chain motifs, to give the model some real attitude. Chassis monocoque, front bumper, rear support bar with roller and wheels are all chrome-plated. Spike tires round off the look.
GF-01: Square Set-up, Excellent Performance
This gear-driven 4WD chassis is based around a lightweight and tough monocoque frame, with power provided by the centrally-positioned motor. It utilizes a ‘square’ setup with similar tread and wheelbase lengths. Sealed gearbox is integrated into the frame and protects from dust and debris, while the built-in front and rear differential gears provide smooth cornering. This is reinforced by 4-wheel double wishbone suspension and friction dampers plus a 2-piece tie rod steering setup with the servo on the left for excellent response. Furthermore, it has chrome-plated wheels to match the chassis, fitted with big 115mm diameter soft compound lug pattern spike tires, plus a rear support bar with roller to prevent the model from flipping.
