Proven electric powered chassis design digs deep for real desert racing action.
The excitement of dual-purpose performance, delivered in large size.

Experience the real excitement of 1/8 class racing performance that this dynamic lightweight chassis delivers. Capturing both the form and running style of the ever-popular desert racing buggies of America, the ULTIMA DB reproduces the spirit of fun and action. With the Ultima RB5 2WD racing buggy at its core, the ULTIMA DB features a 60mm longer wheelbase with a deep stroke suspension system for more rough road stability and a powerful yet easy to manage G20 motor. The special tires create a distinctive scale appearance as well as delivering dual purpose off-road and on-road performance. As a fully finished Readyset, the included ESC with its initial setup already complete can be used with Ni-Cd, Ni-MH or Lipo batteries (sold separately). Just load your battery and switch the power on! The heart of electric buggy racing beats strong in the ULTIMA DB and is more fun than ever before!
