The HPI Venture Toyota FJ Cruiser Scale Crawler combines a forward mounted motor, metal chassis rails and transfer case equipped drivetrain with a licensed replica Toyota FJ40 body that includes front and rear bumpers, mirrors, roof rack and rear tire mount. This gives the Venture a level of scale realism that is rare in an RTR.

Underneath the body, metal C-channel chassis rails support an all metal gear drivetrain, central transfer case and chassis mounted servo with behind the axle steering linkage to provide great scale looks, zero bump steer and incredible approach/departure angles. The axle housings feature a small diff case for clearance with an aluminum pumpkin cover, while a Zero Ackermann high steer knuckle design improves clearance and delivers a tighter turning radius. Plus, scale size threaded aluminum oil-filled shocks and full-time locked differentials with HPI Rockthorn 109mm x 38mm soft S-Compound tires to give the rig a sure footed hold in any condition. Combine this with an HPI TF-40 2.4GHz transmitter, waterproof receiver, NiMH battery/charger set and AA batteries for the transmitter and you have a fully RTR scaler that is ready to tackle anything on the trail.

This is a fun crawler to have. As an actual FJ owner, I like the attention to detail that is featured. It is very rugged and can take on any terrain. Definitely a great buy!

Very cool design and awesome scale details

Only issue is the steering servo which is weak unlike my TRX4 which is sturdy from stock

Overall a nice package.

One of my favorite kits. But it wasn't when I first bought it. But with some of the upgrades that I have made it has been an awesome crawler. I'm glad it's part of my fleet.

So far I’m very impressed with this out of the box. I have made several upgrades including servo, tires, wheels, and Lipo batteries. But a very fun RC.

HPI Venture FJ Cruiser RTR 4WD Scale Crawler (Gunmetal)
Great looking scale truck. I own an FJ and waited forever to get this in my hands. However once I did, I was disappointed in the built quality and QC. The first time I took it out I broke it ( to be fair, it was in the snow and plastic does get brittle.) I took it off a 8" step and the front steering knuckle shattered. I was one of the first people to get their FJ and there were no parts yet to fix it. Amain was great and took care of me and ordered the parts for me. While I was waiting I ordered a TRX4 and fell in love with it! I gave the FJ to my wife and after almost a month the replacement parts came in. She took it out to wheel with me and in 10 min the servo just stopped working! Then we started to see rust while replacing the servo. So we decided to part ways with the FJ and get another TRX4, the Bronco. So, if you love the looks of the HPI FJ, then I would recommend getting the body when it comes out and put it on a TRX4. LOL

I will say the HPI wheeled great when it worked. Great COG and grip ( after you replace the hockey puck tires, and the servo) It was way lighter then the TRX4 and climbed and side hills much better then the highroofed LR.

Thanks again for the great customer service AMAIN!
