The VS4-10 Fordyce RTR is a retro inspired truck with the modern rugged durability that Vanquish Products is known for. Features the VFD Spec transmission, F10 Straight Axles, and Fordyce body with bedsides. Included is a full function digital 4 Channel VT-1 Transmitter with multiple model memory and end point adjustment, making the VS4-10 Fordyce RTR ready to be equipped with optional radio controlled accessories such as a winch, light controller or dig. Out of the box the VFD Spec comes with 6.5% OD powered by a 35T VM-1 Motor and VE-1 3S capable ESC. High quality stainless steel links are used throughout the Fordyce’s suspension, including larger diameter lower links for extra mass down low and a high clearance front tie rod that removes the bends from the link. The F10 straight axles are equipped with a one piece ring gear and spool paired with machined pinion gear. The chromoly universal axle shafts allow for 49 degrees of steering. Full ball bearings, metal transmission gears and 32P spur / pinion provide smooth and reliable performance when tackling the toughest terrain.
The VS4-10 Fordyce RTR is equipped with the VFD Spec transmission, a proven transmission with outstanding durability and optimized design. The molded F10 Straight Axles utilize a high clearance design which minimizes the size of the pumpkin and provides the look of full scale axles you would see in the real world. Connecting the VFD Spec to the F10 Axles are the ISD10 driveshafts. The ISD10 Driveshafts have machined CV style joints at each end with molded splined shafts between them for smooth, quiet and efficient performance. The large 8mm bore S8E shocks included dual X-Ring cartridge and scale threaded caps with a sealed upper bleeder screw. S8E preload adjustment is a breeze with the threaded shock bodies and collars.
