What can the Ruckus do?
Rise to challenges wherever they may be with all-terrain tyres, 540 motor, shock absorbers and a robust chassis. Take on any competitor with speeds of up to 25+mph and splash proof electronics. This 1:10 scale model is 238.8mm x 348mm x 238.8mm and comes with a splash proof build so you can face whatever the track throws at you. This monster truck gives you size, manoeuvrability and speed in one fun package.

How does the Ruckus drive?
Your radio controller includes forward, backward, left and right controls for a range of manoeuvres. The truck comes with a 2 channel 2.4GHz transmitter and a splash proof receiver so you’ll always get the best signal. The transmitter has a throttle trigger for forward, backwards and brake and the vertical steering wheel controls the direction. The transmitter comes pre-paired with your truck. The Ruckus can be upgraded with compatible parts (not included) to run longer, faster or increase performance. Recommended for ages 14+.

Do I need to assemble the truck?
The vehicle comes RTR (ready to run), you just need to charge the battery up. When the battery runs low, you simply need to charge it and return it to its handy compartment. The transmitter runs off four AA batteries (included), and the LED indicator will blink when the batteries are running low - letting you know when to change them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and tough as old boots I bought this last Christmas for my daughter, it's been driven in to walls at top speed, on sand, through mud, water, snow and it's still working like new. Better still is it's completely upgradable, not that you'll need it to go any faster. You will need to buy a new battery as the stock one will only last you about five minutes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Truck Car looks great and my son loves it, but the battery is very bad only last 15 mins and takes 9 hours to charge, had to buy and Li-po S2 30C 4000 battery mAh and charger, would recommend getting an extra battery, also was disappointed with the charger does not tell you when charged, wait and see how fast it is after the new battery goes in, start fast then hoes slow and has trouble with grass and hard services great fast and fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ruckus 2wd truck Got this a few days ago for the kids 8 and 9 years. Adjustable speed helps as they can learn with it going slow but when turnd up its very fast. Takes quite a bashing only bad point is the charging time is 9hours but a spare batters a fiver so its not that bad.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what is says on the box Extremely disappointed. Lack of power after first minute. Drove for 15 minutes very slowly. Tried another fully charged battery same thing. Dvd is misleading. Waste of money. Going to buy one from another rc brand.

Hi. How do you brake when using the controller.

Asked by: david1970
This would be by putting it in reverse, so by pulling back on the throttle.
