1/10 4wd Losi Rock Rey Review

losi rock key

Based on the Losi® Rey® platform, the 1/10th 2.2 Rock Rey rock racer takes no prisoners. It embodies everything drivers love about the desert and rock racing culture, and features a new cage and bodywork that looks just like the full-scale vehicles. This rock racers new front-end geometry adds the needed handling for racing while taking advantage of the Baja Rey rear-loading battery, bottom-loading motor, brushless power and an AVC® precision driving system. From rocks to water to mud, you’ll experience next-level awesomeness, drive after drive.

Realistic 4WD Chassis with Long-Travel Suspension
The Rock Rey chassis is a brilliant blend of scale realism with functional 4WD capabilities. The foundation consists of a 3mm, aluminum chassis plate that is integrated with a realistic roll cage made of super-tough composite material. To this it adds a long-travel, independent front suspension and 4-link live rear axle that look and function exactly like their full-scale counterparts.

LED Light Bar
The fun doesn’t stop even when the sun goes down with the Rock Rey™. Twelve brilliant LEDs on the integrated light bar cast more than enough illumination for running at night. Plus, the body-mounted LEDs place only a small demand on the battery allowing you to stay out all night!

Dynamite® 2800Kv Brushless Power System
The vehicle comes equipped with a Dynamite Fuze™ 2800Kv brushless motor and a waterproof 130A ESC. This potent combination can handle 2S or 3S LiPo batteries (sold separately) and will allow you to hurtle across the landscape at speeds of up to 40+ mph.

Sealed, Heavy Duty Metal-Gear Transmission and Diffs
The transmission, as well as the front and center diffs, are sealed against the elements and engineered to handle the abuse of a high-output brushless motor and punishing terrain. MOD 1 gears further increase the durability of this off-road beast.

Coil-Over Oil-Filled Shocks
The long-travel shocks do a fantastic job of soaking up the energy from big bumps and jumps. They also feature threaded shock bodies with adjustment collars so you can fine tune the pre-load settings of the coil-over springs. External bump stops on the rear provide plush landings on the hardest surfaces.

Waterproof Electronics
The Rock Rey™ Rock Racer is loaded with waterproof electronics including the receiver, servo and ESC. Everything is sealed against the elements allowing you to splash in the rain, spin in the mud and make tracks in the snow. It’s full-throttle freedom to run anytime, rain or shine.

Easy-Access Motor
The unique design of the chassis allows the Dynamite® 550 6-Pole 2800Kv brushless motor to be accessed without difficulty. Drivers simply remove three screws in the bottom of the chassis and they can then effortlessly make gear changes and service the motor.

Easy-Access Battery Compartment
To help withstand the trials and tribulations of off-road driving, the Rock Rey™ Rock Racer was built on a durable anodized aluminum chassis with a bottom load battery compartment. Quickly and easily make battery changes without removing the body or wrestling with battery straps.

Bolt-On Body Panels and Detailed Interior
The bolt-on body panels are incredibly durable and eliminate the need for body posts that might spoil the scale looks. You also get a molded interior that includes a driver and rider figure, both of which sport racing helmet and harness details.

2.2” x 5.8” Maxxis Creepy Crawler LT Tires
Excellent scale looks while providing an aggressive tread for all-terrain applications.

Molded Roll Cage and Driver Figures
The molded roll cage and driver figures provide even more scale looks and extra durability.

Spektrum™ SPMSRS6000 AVC Receiver
With the SPMSRS6000 AVC Receiver driver’s get stability control for ANY vehicle in their collection! You can have the stability control of AVC™ (Active Vehicle Control) technology in any vehicle just by adding the SRS6000 receiver and binding it to an AVC compatible transmitter.

Bind-N-Drive™
Bind-N-Drive™ (BND) is a transmitter-less option for RC enthusiasts who already own a surface transmitter featuring Spektrum 2.4GHz DSM Technology. This money-saving innovation allows you to add a Bind-N-Drive vehicle to your collection without the extra cost or clutter of an extra transmitter.

The Full-Throttle Freedom of AVC® Technology
When you’re ready to let the brushless motor off the chain, don’t hold back. The receiver’s built-in AVC (Active Vehicle Control®) system will work behind the scenes, making hundreds of tiny throttle and steering adjustments per second, so more of the motor’s power is translated into ballistic speed and acceleration instead of just flying dirt. An AVC adjustment knob on the included DX2E transmitter lets you adjust how much traction control the system provides. You can even turn it off.
