PRODUCT INFORMATION:
  • Watch a video introduction about this product
  • Welcome to the 1/8 Cragsman crawler RTR.

    Are you up for something new and unique? Will this 1/8 crawler change the game? Traction Hobby sets out to produce something the RC crawling world hasn't seen - a 1/8 sized crawler, larger than almost all scale crawlers in the market today. Their vision is to create a new category for scale crawling and even racing.

    Comparing to its predecessor 1/8 Founder Jeep, the chassis rails are now 1.2mm thick steel for strength and to keep it lightweight. A few parts have been redesigned and changed to strong plastic to keep the weight low and with a lower price point.

    The new Cragsman uses a chassis mounted servo design (CMS) instead of axle mounted. It has a massive 83mm skid plate clearance with a wheelbase of 374mm and the axle clearance is 45mm.

    Let's have a look at the highlight features of the 1/8 Cragsman.

    Aluminum Axles

    The axle housings come standard in aluminum. The front and rear axles come out of two separate molds (read on to see why). It has plastic lockouts, C-hubs and knuckles which help reduce the weight of this beast. The C-hub and knuckle design have a 8 degree caster and an impressive 45 degree steering angle.

    Open/Lock Diffs

    This new version comes standard with metal front and rear independent locking diffs, giving you the flexibility to choose which one to lock just by flicking an independent switch for each diff on the transmitter. This means that there is a switch for each lockable diff, not one switch for both diffs.

    Transmission Gear Box, Counter-Rotation Transfer Case

    The transmission gearbox has had an overhaul. The main transmission gearbox is no longer in the middle of the chassis as it is now moved to the front of the rig with the transfer box being a separate piece. The transfer case has a great feature already built: an opposite direction output drive (or counter-rotation transfer case) to help reduce torque twist found in many RC crawlers. This means the center drivelines now spin in opposite directions. This reduces torque twist to almost non-existence levels. This is the reason for having two molds for the axles as the bevel gears are in opposite reverse positions.

    2-Speed Transmission, 2WD/4WD Selection

    The main gearbox features a two speed transmission for Hi or Low gear selected by turning a knob on the 6-channel transmitter. On the transfer box it you can go 2WD or 4WD turning a button on the transmitter.

    Drivelines, Links and Shocks

    The links are made out of 7mm stainless steel with an M5 thread for the ball ends for extra strength; the lower links are high clearance links. The front drive shafts are CVD and the front and rear drive shafts are made out of hardened steel for extra strength and durability. To help with flexing its wheels it is fitted with some 110mm aluminum adjustable big bore 2 stage coils over shocks.

    Wheels & Tires

    It comes with a licensed ProComp 2.2 wheel/rim that is molded plastic and is a glue on wheel. The ProComp wheel do not come glued to the tires which you can save the tires for optional beadlocks. The stock tires are soft, which should do well on many different terrains. It comes with open cell foam inserts. The size is 135mm X 56mm 2.2, licensed Mark Ma tire with an aggressive tread pattern for good traction and performance.

    A fifth spare tire is included, same as the running tires.

    Body & Accessories

    The body is aggressive looking and the scale is superb. The body is made out of lexan and is lightweight. It includes a plastic roll cage and give you the open top option. The wide body fenders are plastic and comes with adjustable side mirrors. The body is held on by four magnetic stealth mounts and Velcro on the side of the truck, securely locks the body in place, so there is no need for body pins or screws to hold the pre-painted body in place. The body comes with all light buckets for the front and rear headlights and taillights. The roof lights include light buckets. They do not come with LEDs so you will need to add your own set of lights.

    For scale accessories, it comes with metal window guards and a snorkel with real metal sheet at the air in-take.

    Radio

    It comes with a 6-channel radio system that controls all these new features, including 2WD/4WD option, front and rear open/lock diffs, 2-Speed transmission, steering and throttle.

    Amazing vehicle, very well put together, an absolute monster. Love that the tires weren't glued and the fact that the roof can come off to make it an open top is amazing! The only issue I have is the Hi/Low speed shifting server does not work out of the box. Sure isn't the biggest issue but inconvenient. Great excuse to buy shiny new parts! (Hoping to get a replacement servo so I can edit this review and nudge it up to a full 5 stars). All in all, if you don't have one get one or two!
