The VS4-10 Phoenix RTR represents a groundbreaking offering by Vanquish Products, marking their debut in the Ready-to-Run (RTR) platform arena. This remarkable vehicle boasts the VFD Twin transmission and F10 Straight Axles as its core components. It comes complete with a versatile digital 4 Channel VT-1 Transmitter that offers multiple model memory and endpoint adjustment. This means the VS4-10 Phoenix RTR is adaptable for a fully functional Dig and Selectable OD configuration right out of the box. Alternatively, you can run it as-is, with a 6% OD powered by a 35T VM-1 Motor and a VE-1 3S-capable ESC. Enhancing the quality of this RTR model are the large-diameter Stainless Steel links, showcasing Vanquish Products' premium kit quality.

The drivetrain of the VS4-10 Phoenix RTR is built to endure tough conditions. It features precision-machined ring and pinion gears, chromoly universal axle shafts, and robust chromoly 6-bolt spools, ensuring unparalleled durability. With full ball bearings, metal transmission gears, and a 32P spur/pinion gear setup, it delivers a seamless and dependable performance when tackling challenging terrains.

What sets the VS4-10 Phoenix RTR apart is the inclusion of features never before seen in an RTR of its kind. The VFD Twin incorporates Selectable Overdrive Shifting and a 3-position dig-ready setup (note that servos are not included), all within a compact design. The molded F10 Straight Axles provide a high clearance design, minimizing the size of the pumpkin and maximizing clearance around the C-hub and knuckle. The ISD10 driveshafts connect the VFD Twin to the F10 Axles, featuring machined CV-style joints at each end and molded splined shafts in between for smooth, quiet, and efficient performance.

The vehicle is equipped with large 8mm bore S8E shocks, which come with dual X-Ring cartridges, scale-threaded caps, and a sealed upper bleeder screw. Adjusting S8E preload is straightforward, thanks to the threaded shock bodies and collars.
