Product Description

Before drivers compete in the world’s toughest off-road races, they first get a feel for the course in a prerunner. Prerunners are street-legal monsters with huge suspension travel, fortified drivetrains, and massive power. A prerunner must be built strong enough to tackle the toughest courses, while still being manageable on the street. The LaTrax Desert Prerunner™ packs these race-bred features into a convenient, take-anywhere, 1/18 scale size.Like full-size prerunners, the LaTrax Prerunner is built to be fast and nimble while being extremely durable and able to withstand the rigors of all-terrain racing action. Equipped with a powerful motor, independent suspension, and 4-wheel drive, the Prerunner is Ready-To-Race® right out of the box. The all-weather electronics defeat the elements—driving through mud, snow, and water. Oil-filled shocks soak up the bumps and jumps, and provide smooth suspension movement over any terrain.

The 2.4GHz radio system provides dependable, long-range control. The Prerunner is perfect for any age driver or skill level and comes fully assembled, painted, and Ready-To-Race with the included high capacity 7.2v NiMH battery pack with iD and convenient AC wall charger. Everything you need is included in the package. The LaTrax Desert Prerunner is Powered By Traxxas, protected by world-class Traxxas support, 100% parts availability, and the LaTrax Lifetime Electronics Warranty.

Tires & Wheels

Tough Prerunner Body with Cutting-Edge Graphics

The Prerunner comes fully painted, trimmed, and decaled for good looks right out of the box. The race-ready body is wrapped with stunning custom graphics with blue or red accent colors.

Front and Rear Bumpers

The LaTrax Prerunner features front and rear bumpers behind the body shell to provide support and absorb impacts. Prerunner’s steep front and rear approach angles allow it to drive up ramps and over curbs.

High Capacity 7.2-volt NiMH Battery Pack with iD™

The Prerunner includes an iD-equipped 7.2v NiMH battery and convenient AC wall charger. This potent pack features heavy-duty construction, 16-gauge wires and Traxxas’ exclusive patented High-Current Connector for efficient power transfer, run after run. Everything you need is in the box, even 4 AA alkaline batteries! Accessory Traxxas iD chargers (sold separately) auto-detect LaTrax/Traxxas iD-equipped batteries and automatically set and optimize charge settings for unmatched charging safety and simplicity.

Three-Channel Micro Receiver

LaTrax’s 3-channel micro receiver uses 2.4GHz technology for long range and dependable performance. The radio system automatically finds an open channel so you never have to worry about radio conflicts with your friends or changing frequency crystals. The receiver is fully protected from the elements by the patented weather-sealed receiver box. It is also protected with full support and the Lifetime Electronics Warranty from Traxxas.

Four-Wheel Drive

Four-wheel drive provides maximum traction and control on a wide range of off-road driving surfaces. An aluminum center driveshaft carries the power to the front and rear differentials.

All-Metal Gear Differentials

The rugged gear differentials use a well-proven design to balance power delivery out to the wheels for stability and control. The precisely engineered metal gears deliver rugged, efficient, and reliable performance.

Fully Independent Suspension

The fully independent suspension allows each wheel to absorb impacts without affecting the other wheels or upsetting the balance of the model. Each tire stays firmly planted for superior handling and control.

Oil-Filled Shocks

The Prerunner’s adjustable oil-filled shocks with variable mounting positions provide super-smooth performance and handling. Suspension motions are damped for smooth performance over extremely rough surfaces and controlled landings over large jumps.

Bellcrank Steering

Bellcrank steering combined with the fully independent front suspension optimizes the steering response and precision. Stability and control are made rock solid as the bellcrank geometry eliminates “bump steer” that would otherwise take you off course as the suspension is compressed.

Integrated Servo Saver

The bellcrank steering system uses a “servo saver” to protect the servo gears from impacts.

All-Weather Electronics

Experience 4WD excitement year-round, no matter what the elements have to offer, with the Prerunner’s patented all-weather electronics! Water, mud, and snow won’t slow you down. The electronic speed control, receiver box, and high-torque digital steering servo are all waterproof to keep the racing action running in wet conditions that send other trucks back to the workbench.

Waterproof Steering Servo

Small but powerful, the Prerunner’s servo cranks out 32 oz-in. of tire-turning torque for responsive steering and precise control. Waterproof, O-ring-sealed construction locks out moisture, dirt, and debris.

Easy Battery Access

The battery compartment makes it easy to remove and install the included 7.2-volt battery pack. Keep extra charged batteries on hand for hours of driving fun.

2.4GHz Wheel Radio

The included hobby-class 2.4GHz wheel radio has a specially designed comfort grip and precision steering control. Advanced features include servo reversing, low battery indicator, and electronic steering trim control. Digital proportional output offers extremely precise and smooth steering, throttle, and braking control.
