This crawler is perfect for those days when the weather won't let you outside or your crawling space is limited, because you can set up a cool obstacle course with a few household objects that will keep you challenged for hours.

The RockSta can handle tough mini trails because it's packed with features like a low centre of gravity, four wheel steering with steering mixing, motor on axle both front and rear, fixed diffs and solid axle suspension just like the big boys.

Truly unique to the RockSta is the ability to change steering modes on the fly using the radio included in the box. It has four steering modes that can all be changed from the radio by simply pressing a button:
• Front wheels only
• Rear wheels only
• Front and rear wheels in opposing directions
• Front and rear wheels in the same direction (crabbing)
With these great features and its tough construction the RockSta Mini Rock Crawler is the best value crawler in its class and will make the competition green with envy.

This kit version of the RockSta is for those among us who love to tinker and make their own versions with their choice of electronics. This will require a fair amount of RC knowledge and skill but we know there are plenty of hobbyists out there with the right stuff who will use this chassis to make some truly inspiring rigs. You may need to modify the chassis to accept different ESCs and receivers, but the results will be worth it. This little chassis makes for a great crawler but maybe you want more power, more speed, lower COG, lower weight, two wheel steering (both steering arms can be locked with a screw) or you could go the whole hog and convert this little beast into a micro rock racer. It's up to you.

With these great features and its tough construction the RockSta Mini Rock Crawler is the best value crawler in its class and will make the competition green with envy.

It looks better than the HB one. Performance wise, I don't know.

The kit version isn't as good a deal for only a $17usd price difference unless you have the parts laying around your workbench. 1-2 servos, 2-3 channel Tx/Rx, ESC, and two motors will cost more a lot more than the difference in price.

But a pair of small heli/quad motors would be fun.

I'm considering getting the kit version and putting in a nice metal gear servo for the front. Then just add a small brushed esc, and two Tamiya plasma dash motors ($10 each) and that would make a great indoor and outdoor FPV setup. But i would wait till there's some reviews out, and see if its any good.

+1, Main differences 1/18 and 1/24, HB is bigger but 4 wheels steering instead of 2 for the HB. Basher RockSta is smaller but seems a better rock crawler.

Yes, for 17$ more it worth the price.

It's a crawler and meant for low speed. If it went any faster it'd flip over every time you turned. You could put some lower turn motors on it and stiffen the springs up, but then you may as well buy another RC.

Yah I get that its a crawler, but in the video that HK put up, it looked quite a bit faster. Iv'e wanted a micro vehicle to do indoor Fpv rock racing. and this would make an excellent choice with some modifications. Such as, lower CG, higher speed Fpv. But my main concern is, is the motor adjustable to allow for different pinions?
