Ain't no mountain high enough!

The HPI Venture was made for one thing. Climbing mountains paths, over rocks and through streams. The chassis kit comes with all differentials and suspension parts as well as a long list of optional extras like rebuildable front universal driveshafts, aluminium lower links, 4-link rear suspension and brass axle weights to lower the center of gravity. The advantage of the Scale Builder chassis kit is that you get to choose your preffered motor, ESC, Servo, radio equipment, wheels and body yourself.

The car is designed as a replica of a real rock crawler, and the replica design is also reflected in with the steel C-channel chassis rails supporting a front-mounted motor, transmission and servo, plus a central transfer case that sends power to telescoping driveshafts and solid axles with metal diff covers. The oil-filled shock absorbers and full-time locked differentials work for maximum grip in all off-road situations.

Designed uniquely for crawling

Being designed specifically for rock crawling, the Venture Scale Builder isn't made like other RC cars. The forward-mounted motor, transmission and servo, focuses he weight at the front, ensuring the Venture offers a more realistic driving experience and an advantage over most other scale crawlers when crawling up the inclines.

Additionally, the HPI Venture has the transfer case gear ratio of 1.5:1 and mounted centrally. While focusing weight to the front, the central transfer case allows the centerline of the chassis to be low, so the driveshafts runs perpendicular to the axles, ensuring as much power as possible are transferred to the ground.

Durability and strength are key for a rock crawler, so the Venture has strong metal gears throughout its transmission. The focus on durability is also obvious in the suspension, with rugged aluminium parts on axles, rod and shock mounts - even the Panhard bar is aluminium!
