Temper 1/18 Mini Rock Crawler RTR by ECX w/2.4GHz Radio, Battery & Charger
This product was added to our catalog on August 27, 2015.
This is the ECX Temper 1/18 Ready to Run Mini Rock Crawler. The Temper is a breakout release from ECX, and is one of the most affordable 1/18-scale rock crawlers on the market. Rock crawlers may not be fast, but they add a sense of realism to the driving experience by mimicking the off-road rigs that conquer steep climbs and claw their way over rocks in the most brutal environments. The Temper rock crawler has a penchant for unforgiving terrain thanks to its 4WD drivetrain and multi-link suspension, combined with the extreme durability ECX owners have come to expect.

Needed to Complete:
- Nothing! Completely ready-to-run with everything you need in one box.
These are great little crawlers. Not just for the price but really, they are just awesome.
First, they are not fast. Which means it's a lot harder to run it into something and break it. But man will it crawl over stuff.
Second, yeah it comes with a little 900mah battery. Well that little battery lasted close to an hour.
I'm truly amazed at the play time you get per battery on this thing.
For the $$ you get everything you need to play in the box. And the fun is built in too.
Full bearings already so you don't have to tear it apart right away and add those!
I carry mine around in my truck so if I see a place to crawl, I'm ready!
I have since modified my Temper. I put on a different body (The Proline 72 Chevy fits great), some new tires mounted on new alloy wheels, some changes to the shocks to compensate for the added weight of the body and mounting system and it's just a blast.
It utilizes the 12mm hex for the wheels so just about anything 1.9 will fit it. Some of the taller tires will rub on the front trailing arms when you turn the wheels, but you can either adjust the throw on the servo so they don't rub or buy some wideners.
Overall if you are just getting into crawling or your just looking for something different and you don't want to invest $300, this is the crawler for you. You can learn a lot and have a blast. And with the money you save on the initial purchase you can afford to buy an extra battery and charger or some new tires and wheels.)
