1/10 Quanum Vandal 4WD Electric Racing Buggy (KIT)

Get ready to steal the win at your local dirt track with the all new 1/10 Quanum Vandal 4WD Electric Racing Buggy! It comes pre-assembled and will have you ready to take on the track in no time! You will simply need to add your own power system, steering servo, 2CH transmitter/receiver and lipoly battery.

The Vandal chassis is lightweight yet rigid offering a perfect combination of weight savings and strength. Additionally, it features a robust shaft driven 4WD system providing plenty of torque to both the front and rear wheels, an adjustable slipper clutch to protect the drivetrain and metal gear front/rear differentials. No messy belt drive system requiring routine maintenance with this setup!

This kit includes proper 1/10 buggy wheels, soft compound tires for increased traction and handling, as well as a wickedly styled, pre-painted and trimmed body shell. Also, with features such as fully adjustable suspension, oil filled shocks and adjustable camber/castor, it's easy to fine tune the ride to the conditions of your favorite track or bashing spot.

The Quanum Vandal may be labeled as a thief, but at this price it will be sure to leave some cash in your pocket!

Can anyone tell me if i can use a brushed motor in this to keep the speed down as i am using this to make an rc Willy's jeep? or can you recommend a brushless motor with low speed and good torque. Not for racing..thanks.
 Francisco 1 points
You can use instead a brushed motor, but may have to change any parts that already engines crawler has a lot of strength
 mechanical wizar 1 points
why go brushed just limit the power with your esc

I have this buggy now. Anyone can tell me why there is a sticker which explain us to not fit battery more than 25C discharge???
 benn 126 points
No idea. I ran 40c 2S batteries for 2 seasons in mine with no issues. They do wear out the drive cups fast but that's just because of the weak metal used. The diff and drive gears are pretty strong.
 Marco 1 points
Hey marc, I use 70c and have no issues, cups do get a bit worn but hey, they would also even with the 25c's.

does any one know if I could use this car for speeding onroad or is this just for bashing offroad??
 Sean 9 points
I us my car on road and off depends on what you want to do but yea I say you can us on road just keep in mind that you should get a extra set of tires for on road so you don't burn off the ones it comes with
 mechanical wizar 1 points
yes u can use it on road its probably better for it more then anything dirt and mud and rough terrain is always a killer on rc cars you may want to get a bigger pinion for on road to take advantage of higer speed just carfull to watch motor temp
Rallyant  11 points - 1/21/2015
Whats a good list of components to build this kit up with?
 benn 126 points
Start with the carbon front shock tower, stock plastic one bends to easily and damages the shocks, sway bars help and are worth it if you want to race, get the top deck carbon fibre chassis as it stops the chassis flexing, does require different screws to mount. Don't bother with the alloy shocks they bend to easily. The Trackstar 3000kv motor and ESC combo work well with this cars stock gearing. Little room under body to don't use a large ESC. Just get some decent tyres when you need them, the stock ones are ****.

does anyone know were can i find a metal/steel spur geear for my vandal?
 Sean 9 points
This is The one I use just make sure it will fit you motor shaft
 Karl-Jørgen 6 points
Hello Sean. Can you post the link again. I can't see it. I really need a new steel spur and pinion gear. Do you have some links for that.
 Daniel 3 points
Hi Sean, did you find a metal/steel spur gear? For pinion gear this is the link i got from
 mechanical wizar 1 points
steel pinion have disadvantages aswell they have alot more resistance harder to spin also they are nosiey and hard to keep a nice mesh also if u beef that system up your next breaking point should be upgraded as well like diff ,tranny, drive axels

This buggy is a smart buy for anyone who have some knowhow with rc cars.
Im going to be listing pro's and cons to this kit.

Pro's: This kit is really cheap! The tires have nice and soft compond.
You can tweak all different things: Camber, shocks, also droop screws in a-arms. Slipper cluch.
The pastic on the shock towers are soft, that means you can actually roll this buggy without breaking them. Wing is also flexible.
I setup this buggy with a 3600kv motor, 60 amp esc and 2s lipo. I also put on a 20tooth pinion gear. (insted of the 14 tooth that is in the kit)
This can handles well, and can handle bumbs.


The A-arm plastic is to stiff. Im afraid that can cause breakage for many people.
The body is nice, but you have limited space under it. So you really have to cram everything in there.
Foam in the tires are a bit soft.
Somehow the motor sticks about 1/2 to 1 mm outside the chassie (in the bottom)

Overall this buggy is a safe bet! You cant go wrong with the price.

I have also made a video in youtube. Just search for: Quanom Vandal, and you should find the video.

Mine arrived today, opened it and it seemed alright with the quality, looked like hardened plastics for most of it, but the shock towers did look a bit on the weak side. the tires seem quite soft, but not so soft they would collapse. the shocks look like they are bigger bore than standard 10th scale off roaders, but not sure if they are fully topped up with oil. the diffs didnt feel like they had oil in them, maybe different greases. the rear felt noticeably lighter than the front diff. the battery compartment seemd to fit my 6000mah 65c batteries i pretty much use in everything without a problem, a couple of mm either side, but some foam could prevent it from moving, but you do need to fit the positive terminal with a right angle 4mm plug otherwise you will struggle to plug it in without modifying the chassis. plugged the positive in first, then slid the battery in its compartment. one small problem is there is very little room under the shell for electronics. ideally you'll want a low profile servo, micro reciver and a small ESC otherwise you'll struggle to fit everything. i did give it a quick run down the area near me where i run all my off-roaders, and it felt quite smooth. no notible oversteer or understeer, with leaving the setup 100pcnt stock with a hobbywing 11.5t xcar setup, but i might up it to a 10t setup. will run this during the summer at my local club as my m

I have found many different copies/versions of this buggy out there and have read a lot about them while I was waiting for my buggy to arrive to me here in the US. This buggy is an updated ftx vantage buggy, as on all the forums the big mod is to put the front shock tower and shocks on the vantage to reduce shock tower breakage. Well when I received my buggy yesterday I went over it very good and have not finished my complete going through of it yet, but I did notice the front and rear shock towers are the same as are the front and rear shocks. Now as far as it having plastic hinge pin holders I know that is a weak spot on a 4wd but aluminum ones are made for the ftx vantage buggy, along with a carbon fiber chassis and top deck, aluminum shocks also as the shock bodies on this car are plastic. For the guys in the United States, Integy makes this buggy also, its version name on integy website is the i10B, its only a rtr that you can buy from them but they do have spare arms, hinge pin holders and such forth for parts as a lot of local hobby shops can get all integy parts as long as you give them the part number. I have yet to hit the track with mine as I don't have any tires that will do good for my local track and I still need to go through the shocks on the buggy as they have a lot of air and feel as if they are only about 3/4 full of oil. So I'm going to get into them a

Good design. Fully adjustable caster/camber, front CVDs, slipper, big bore shox, low profile. Excellent value if you are in to club races or just plain ol' bashing.
