The Arocs series is a line of heavy-duty models introduced in 2013 by the world’s leading truck manufacturer, Daimler AG (Germany). This R/C model assembly kit recreates the Arocs 4151 8×4 dump truck (gross vehicle weight: 41t), which runs on a 12.8-liter turbocharged inline-6 engine capable of 510hp. It features a highly detailed body with distinctive bucket tooth front grille as a separate part. The roof has a front bar with light pods, and the inside of the cab is also depicted. Behind the cab, a realistic one-piece resin bed is reinforced with a metal frame, while the ladder frame chassis features aluminum side channels with resin cross members. The two front axles are steered via a single servo, and power from the front-mounted TR Mighty Tuned Motor (35T) is delivered to rear axles via propeller shaft, with a built-in differential gear on each rear axle for smooth cornering. Its highly-realistic suspension utilizes metal leaf springs and friction dampers. Tandem die-cast front axles have individual leaf springs, and reinforced resin rear axles are a trunnion design. The assembly type 3-speed transmission allows gear changes via a separately available 4-channel transmitter.
