Primal RC stands out as a prominent creator of awe-inspiring, large-scale RC vehicles worldwide. Renowned for their spectacular 1/5th scale Raminator monster trucks, this New York-based company has once again taken the RC world by storm with their latest innovation: a 1/5th scale Dodge Challenger Widebody RC car.
Setting itself apart, Primal RC has secured an official licensing from Dodge, making this creation much more than a mere HELLCAT-inspired RC body. Going the extra mile, they offer an array of customization options for Dodge aficionados eager to personalize their Challenger experience. With a choice of 5 vibrant colors, 4 distinct hood styles, and 2 sets of decals, customers can craft a Challenger RC that resonates with their preferences. Moreover, Primal RC grants the freedom to select between gas-powered, electric-powered, or a blank canvas option for those wanting to integrate their preferred power source.
The Primal RC Challenger authentically captures the essence of the real Dodge Challenger, meticulously designed to be a genuine 1/5 scale replica. Adorned with an officially-sanctioned Dodge Widebody Challenger body, it proudly boasts a rear-wheel drive configuration, true-to-scale “Devil’s Rim” wheels furnished with belted tires, and a lighting system that mirrors reality.
Innovative engineering shines through the thoughtfully crafted design, featuring a hassle-free clipless body and LED light connectors that streamline the process of removal and replacement. The drag racing-inspired flat bottom chassis, entirely constructed from carbon fiber and accentuated with CNC aluminum bracing and front suspension, ensures both performance and durability. Notably, the LED lights can be conveniently managed directly from the transmitter.
However, the Primal RC Challenger isn’t just about aesthetics. It’s engineered to exude the exhilarating performance synonymous with the Dodge Challenger lineage. To encapsulate that spirit, the vehicle is replete with impressive functionalities, including an engaging Line Lock feature.
