This International Harvester Scout II RC Car Might Be Cooler Than The Real Thing

RC cars have always been an excellent way for would-be drivers to show their skills off in a different light. From iconic race platforms to transcendental chassis, the genre has reincarnated just about every notable vehicle from the past, and the present — calling upon exacting dimensions, miniaturized mainstays, and increasingly-complex architectures to bring added depth to the pastime. Now, Redcat Racing has introduced its take on the International Harvester Scout II, immortalizing yet another prolific off-road platform.

From the get-go, Redcat’s systematic approach to the icon sets a standard for other RC builders looking to tackle the trail-ready legend. A Rallye-inspired shell adorns the outside of the vehicle, accenting its classic stature with detailed additions like a spare tire, independent front suspension, solid rear axle, four-link rear, and threaded, oil-filled shocks. If that’s not enough to take on any off-road situation, a tunable suspension, adjustable ride height, shocks, and gearing offer controllers a quintessential foundation for modification, making this 1:10-scale replica a monster on virtually any surface. Add in a 3300KV RC540 Brushless Motor and waterproof 60A ESC/steering servo, and you’ve got yourself one of the most authentic RC vehicles on the market today. The International Harvester Scout II is available now for $300.
