VIDEO Features: Crawling allows you to attack near-vertical cliffs, slick rock faces and piles of mountain rubble!

When you drive the Crawler King, you can go anywhere - mud, sand, tarmac, rock, gravel and much more - and be sure of coming back again! The drivetrain is rock-solid, the parts are durable to come back from falls and tumbles, it performs like a champ and is strong enough to get over just about anything you can get to! It also looks great with the chrome wheels, off-road tires and painted and detailed bodyshell! The Crawler King makes an ideal first-time RC vehicle! When you're ready to hit the rocks, the Crawler King gets you started crawling with ease - with the ultra-flexible Wheely King 4x4 chassis as a starting point, we've added the excellent Rock Crawler Conversion for the best weight distribution, extra articulation and tuning, plus Rock Grabber tires for extreme grip and finally Rock 8 beadlock 2.2 inch wheels in chrome for great style and extra weight down low, right where you need it! To provide precise control for the Crawler King, we've added the excellent HPI TF-1 radio set with SF-1 servo and the torquey Crawler 55T motor provides the power, while our own EN-1 reversible speed controller handles the power. The Crawler King is ready for competition in the 2.2 crawler class, with over 15cm (6 inches) of suspension travel and wheelbase that extends to the maximum legal length! You can easily tune the shock positions and lower link positions, giving you plenty of options to get your crawling rig to the top of the pile! For extreme stability when crawling up steep inclines, the Crawler King uses long links that extend the wheelbase significantly over the nomal Wheely King. Cool anodized aluminum links with pivot balls control the suspension linkage, giving you loads of articulation for extreme angles! The chassis of the Crawler King features a front-mounted battery compartment to optimize weight distribution over the front wheels. This is the ideal place to put the weight of the single heaviest component in the truck, giving you supreme climbing power as you tackle those tough inclines! HPI Racing Rock Grabber Tires are high grip tires designed for rocky terrain. These rock crawling tires are molded with sticky S compound rubber for excellent grip on all kinds of rocks. The blocky tread pattern wraps around the sidewall of the tire for extra grip in challenging conditions. These are true bead lock tires, made to fit HPI rock crawling wheels using 6-hole bead lock rings to keep the tire securely mounted on the wheel without the need for messy super glue. The new 550-size Crawler 55-turn motor gives you the ideal amount of torque and RPM to get over tough, steep boulders! This all-new motor is perfectly suited for the Crawler King and new crawling aficionados, and features a closed-endbell brushed design which is nearly maintenance-free! HPI Rock 8 no-glue beadlock wheels will be included to give the Crawler King a sweet custom look and allow you to change wheel weights, foams and tires whenever you need to. With beadlock wheels there's no gluing, and no mess! There's nothing like the look and style of real beadlocking wheels, and these new 'mag' style wheels look amazing and perfect for the ultimate scale crawler look! Getting the power from the transmission to the axles are a pair of tough, sliding driveshafts. When combined with the diff lockers inside the axles, these are the best way to transfer power in a vehicle with so much articulation - the distance between the axles and transmission vary as the truck goes over obstacles, so sliding joints and locked diffs are the ideal way to get the power to the ground. To give you the best tuning options and increase the amount of ground clearance, HPI designers have included a new lower shock and link mount with several extra mounting locations. This gives you a multitude of options for tackling the toughest climbs, inclines and rock piles. For getting a cool custom style, you can't beat the option of attaching different bodies on your crawler. We've included a full set of Savage-size body mounts for fitting dozens of different monster truck bodies! Simply use your Savage or other monster truck body right on, quick and easy, for a quick style change! We haven't forgotten about great looks, either: topped with either a Land Rover Defender 90 or Jeep Wrangler bodyshell and featuring bright chrome beadlock wheels, the Crawler King is ready for scale concourse honors! You can easily fit other Savage-size bodyshells on the Crawler King, because it includes handy adjustable body mounts that allow any HPI monster truck bodyshell to fit precisely on the chassis! If you're ready to compete, it's a simple matter to add the Reduction Gear Box Set, that makes the gear ratio an astounding 174 to 1, for the most amount of torque for climbing the steepest inclines! The stock Crawler King and Wheely King gear ratio is 23 to 1, so you will instantly see the impressive hill-climbing torque that the Reduction Gear Box Set will give you! The Reduction Gear Box Set will make the Wheely King much slower on level ground, but you will get the full effect of the engine as you encounter steep approach angles and slippery, sandy rocks! The Crawler King can fit a massive variety of Savage, Wheely King and E-Savage bodyshells, plus any of the huge variety of 2.2 inch beadlock and 1/10th truck wheels and tires! You can change the look of the Crawler King as often as you like, it just takes a minute!
