Get Crawling Fast and Easy!
HPI makes getting right into crawling simple and fun with the excellent
Crawler King ready to run truck kit! With its tall Rock Grabber tires,
heavy beadlock wheels, super-narrow chassis, front-mounted battery and
motor, full-time 4WD and locked gearboxes, you will be be king of the
Crawling allows you to attempt the impossibble by attacking
near-vertical cliffs, slick rock faces and piles of mountain rubble!
Although in competitions the truck owners compete against each other,
the magic appeal of rock crawling is that each driver competes against
their own abilities, trusting in the strength of their equipment and the
machine that is bringing them up the hill.
The Perfect All-Around RC Truck!
The Crawler King is a fantastic RTR rock crawler, but it can do so much
more! When you drive the Crawler King, you can go anywhere - mud, sand,
tarmac, rock, gravel and much more - and be sure of coming back again!
The drivetrain is rock-solid, the parts are durable to come back from
falls and tumbles, it performs like a champ and is strong enough to get
over just about anything you can get to! It also looks great with the
chrome wheels, off-road tires and painted and detailed bodyshell! The
Crawler King makes an ideal first-time RC vehicle!
When you're ready to hit the rocks, the Crawler King gets you started
crawling with ease - with the ultra-flexible Wheely King 4x4 chassis as
a starting point, we've added the excellent #87633 Rock Crawler
Conversion for the best weight distribution, extra articulation and
tuning, plus #4896 Rock Grabber tires for extreme grip and finally #3213
Rock 8 beadlock 2.2 inch wheels in chrome for great style and extra
weight down low, right where you need it!
To provide precise control for the Crawler King, we've added the
excellent HPI TF-1 radio set with SF-1 servo and the torquey Crawler 55T
motor provides the power, while our own EN-1 reversible speed controller
handles the power.
The Crawler King is ready for competition in the 2.2 crawler class, with
over 15cm (6 inches) of suspension travel and wheelbase that extends to
the maximum legal length! You can easily tune the shock positions and
lower link positions, giving you plenty of options to get your crawling
rig to the top of the pile!
For extreme stability when crawling up steep inclines, the Crawler King
uses long links that extend the wheelbase significantly over the nomal
Wheely King. Cool anodized aluminum links with pivot balls control the
suspension linkage, giving you loads of articulation for extreme angles!
The chassis of the Crawler King features a front-mounted battery
compartment to optimize weight distribution over the front wheels. This
is the ideal place to put the weight of the single heaviest component in
the truck, giving you supreme climbing power as you tackle those tough
Amazing Rock Grabber Crawling tires
HPI Racing Rock Grabber Tires are high grip tires designed for rocky
terrain. These rock crawling tires are moulded with sticky S compound
rubber for excellent grip on all kinds of rocks. The blocky tread
pattern wraps around the sidewall of the tire for extra grip in
challenging conditions. These are true bead lock tires, made to fit HPI
rock crawling wheels using 6-hole bead lock rings to keep the tire
securely mounted on the wheel without the need for messy super glue.
Crawler 55T Motor
The new 550-size Crawler 55-turn motor gives you the ideal amount of
torque and RPM to get over tough, steep boulders! This all-new motor is
perfectly suited for the Crawler King and new crawling afficionados, and
features a closed-endbell brushed design which is nearly
Cool Custom Beadlock Wheels
HPI Rock 8 no-glue beadlock wheels will be included to give the Crawler
King a sweet custom look and allow you to change wheel weights, foams
and tires whenever you need to. With beadlock wheels there's no glueing,
and no mess! There's nothing like the look and style of real beadlocking
wheels, and these new 'mag' style wheels look amazing and perfect for
the ultimate scale crawler look!
Getting the power from the transmission to the axles are a pair of
tough, sliding driveshafts. When combined with the diff lockers inside
the axles, these are the best way to transfer power in a vehicle with so
much articulation - the distance between the axles and transmission vary
as the truck goes over obstacles, so sliding joints and locked diffs are
the ideal way to get the power to the ground.
Multiple Lower Shock and Link Mounts
To give you the best tuning options and increase the amount of ground
clearance, HPI designers have included a new lower shock and link mount
with several extra mounting locations. This gives you a multitude of
options for tackling the toughest climbs, inclines and rock piles.
Monster Truck Body Mounts
For getting a cool custom style, you can't beat the option of attaching
different bodies on your crawler. We've included a full set of
Savage-size body mounts for fitting dozens of different monster truck
bodies! Simply use your Savage or other monster truck body right on,
quick and easy, for a quick style change!
Fantastic Scale Looks
We haven't forgotten about great looks, either: topped with either a
Land Rover Defender 90 or Jeep Wrangler bodyshell and featuring bright
chrome beadlock wheels, the Crawler King is ready for scale concours
honours! You can easily fit other Savage-size bodyshells on the Crawler
King, because it includes handy adjustable body mounts that allow any
HPI monster truck bodyshell to fit precisely on the chassis!
Optional Super-Low Gearing
If you're ready to compete, it's a simple matter to add the
Reduction Gear Box Set, that makes the gear ratio an astounding 174 to
1, for the most amount of torque for climbing the steepest inclines! The
stock Crawler King and Wheely King gear ratio is 23 to 1, so you will
instantly see the impressive hill-climbing torque that the Reduction
Gear Box Set will give you! The Reduction Gear Box Set will make the
Wheely King much slower on level ground, but you will get the full
effect of the engine as you encounter steep approach angles and
slippery, sandy rocks!
The Crawler King can fit a massive variety of Savage, Wheely King and
E-Savage bodyshells, plus any of the huge variety of 2.2 inch beadlock
and 1/10th truck wheels and tires! You can change the look of the
Crawler King as often as you like, it just takes a minute!
