This is the Redcat Racing Earthquake 3.5 1/8 Scale RTR 4WD Nitro Monster Truck, with an included 2.4GHz Radio System and .21 Nitro Engine. The 1/8 scale Earthquake 3.5 delivers BIG BLOCK power at a little block price. Part of the Redcat UltraLite Series, the Earthquake 3.5 is ready to run and ready for fun. The 3.5cc .21 big block engine provides earth shaking power and lightning fast acceleration! A specially designed composite disc brake stops this monster with authority.

The Earthquake 3.5 4x4 monster truck is the bashers dream with 2 sealed differentials, adjustable suspension, oil filled adjustable shocks, powerful engine, and 2 speed automatic transmission. Thanks to the 2 speed transmission, the Earthquake 3.5 has low end power for wheelie popping fun and second gear offers a whole new level of excitement at blistering high speeds. The automatic transmission’s shift point is adjustable so you can tune shifting characteristics to your liking.

The Earthquake 3.5 is ready to run, after following proper break in procedures, and includes a 2.4GHz radio for solid control. The aggressive monster truck tires scream “natural disaster”! These meats are made to tear up the terrain while offering great wear characteristics. There’s no need to go around when you can drive over with the Earthquake 3.5 4x4 Nitro powered Monster Truck!

Redcat Earthquake 3.5 1/8 RTR 4WD Nitro Monster Truck (Red)
The Redcat racing Earthquake is not only fast for a nitro, it’s response from trigger till motor moves is less than a fraction. Plus the steering very touchy sensitive. Rubber tires are grabbers.. They should have named this one shredder. She shreds through everything that might be in its way. Nitro fuel can last almost 30 mins on full tank. The sound gets you as it go’s by with its monstrous tuned muffler. Overall it’s a really good nitro for the money and parts are really cheap and easy to come by. I run 33% nitro in mine.

Redcat Earthquake 3.5 1/8 RTR 4WD Nitro Monster Truck (Red)
Do not walk away from this, RUN FAST. Purchased two of these, followed the instructions, could get the motor to run for the break in period of two tank fulls of nitro and then nothing. Both trucks had the same behavior. I went to get with HobbyTown to return them but they would not accept them and only pushed me to Redcat for repair. Don't like it when companies don't stand behind the product they sell. The pull start is beyond difficult to use, ordered an electric starter... from another company and hope that these will work. Needless to say HobbyTown lost a customer forever and Redcat did as well.
