PRODUCT FEATURES

 

The Gen8 International Scout II is Redcat’s first vehicle to be completely designed and developed, in house, in the United States. The Gen8 has rapidly taking the RC marketplace by storm. A quick search will reveal its incredible acceptance into the scale RC crawler community. With its amazing performance, straight out of the box, the Gen8 appeals to both the RTR enthusiasts, as well as to the custom build community.

The Gen8 International® Scout II is a highly competitive professional rock crawler that includes many performance features such as: C-channel frame rails, low center of gravity battery tray, centrally mounted divorced transfer case, lockable slipper clutch, portal axles with metal gear covers, MOD-1 gears, machined aluminum spools, front CVAs, 32 rubber-sealed ball bearings, threaded aluminum shocks, 47º steering blocks with proper Ackerman, Panhard bar, LED-ready bumpers, winch-ready front bumper, and frame mounted floor pans.

The Gen8 features a highly detailed fully licensed International® Scout II body, hard plastic grill, plastic folding mirrors, molded inner and outer fenders, shackle mount front bumper, receiver hitch ready rear bumper, and plastic rock sliders. The Gen8's body and bumpers are ready to have LED lights installed.

True to scale, licensed Interco IROK Super Swamper tires and functional beadlock wheels pull the Gen8 through the toughest terrains. Each wheel uses inner and outer beadlock rings for maximum strength and tire holding capability.

Portal axles provide more ground clearance without needing bigger tires. On the GEN8, much of the gear reduction happens inside the portal axles, which means less chassis torque twist than traditional axle shaft driven rock crawlers. The portal axles provide 54.5mm of ground clearance and include metal gear covers, metal wheel hexes, and CNC machined spools.

The innovative dual design slipper clutch allows the driver to set the slipper clutch, or completely lock it out. Locking out the slipper clutch is simple, just remove the slipper pads and springs, then reassemble. The GEN8 includes a 32P spur gear and Mod 1 gears in the transmission, transfer case, and portal axles.

The Gen8's over built transmission and transfer case feature massive Mod 1 gears, which are designed for hard core crawling of the most grueling conditions. A sealed pinion and spur keeps the gears safe from rocks and debris. Adjust your gearing to fit most motor and driving styles with easy fitment of 9T to 23T pinion gear allowing gear ratios of 28.12 to 71.85. The Redcat Racing GEN8 features a front mounted motor, a divorced transfer case, and 32 rubber sealed bearings through the vehicle.

The Redcat Racing GEN8 makes it easy to conquer all types of terrain. The stock configuration offers users 73.4mm of ground clearance, a 61 degree approach angle, and a 39.5 degree departure angle.

Fully adjustable wheel base, adjustable ride height, adjustable toe angle, multiple shock positions, adjustable approach and departure angle, tunable suspension, and lockable adjustable slipper clutch, ensure the driver gets the very best performance out of the Gen8, no matter the course conditions.

The Gen8 International Scout II is highly upgradeable with many upgraded parts available, including numerable 3D printable parts that have been made available for download by our engineers.

Review: Redcat Racing GEN8 Scout II

My fleet of R/C crawlers has grown over the years, specifically in the past 12 months. With so many new models arriving on the scene, it’s hard to pass up a lower-cost rig when it becomes available, especially if that rig is modeled after one of my (many) dream vehicles. Redcat Racing’s launch of the GEN8 International Scout II had me hooked from the moment I first saw it.

I’ll spare you my IH Scout II backstory and the unwavering affection that I have for the 1:1 rig, but that played a big part in my interest in buying this machine. My interest in the GEN8 wasn’t unique, as this was a hard vehicle to get my hands on in the months following its release. When it finally arrived on my doorstep, I quickly got it up and running to see if it lived up to the hype.

After many months of ownership, many adventures both indoors and out, and time to understand its finer points, here is my review of the Redcat Racing GEN8.

What’s Included:

  • 1 Redcat Racing GEN8 Scout II 1/10-scale R/C crawler
  • 1 Flysky FS-GT2E 2.4GHz radio transmitter
  • 1 Spare parts bag (including a spare tire, a spare tire mount, and various pieces of hardware)
  • 1 Instruction manual

Redcat Racing GEN8 International Scout II Specs:

  • Width: 249mm
  • Height: 258mm
  • Length: 571mm
  • Wheelbase: 324mm Stock (312-336mm Adjustable)
  • Weight: 6.9 lbs (3130 grams)
  • ESC: 40a Brushed Waterproof
  • Radio System: 2.4GHz
  • Motor: 17T, 550-size, Brushed
  • Price: $299.99

The Body

The folks at Redcat Racing, in my opinion, nailed the look of the International Scout II body. While large, it remains faithful to the shape and lines of the 1:1 classic. The flared fenders, specifically the shape of the front fender molding, caused a bit of a debate when this model launched as it didn’t follow the actual shape of the fender. That aside, the body on this 1/10-scale crawler looks great and it holds up against wear and tear.

Compared to its predecessor, the Redcat Racing GEN7, the body of the GEN8 feels much more durable when you hold it, especially along the bottoms of the doors. That area on the GEN7 felt paper-thin, while the GEN8 has a thicker feel to it. It’s still flexible and allows you to tuck it into the inside of the rock sliders/body rails, but it doesn’t feel as if it will tear or puncture under pressure.

The rest of the body feels even more rigid, which gets an assist from the molded inner fenders that are attached to it. Apart from their appearance and body support, these hard-plastic parts serve a functional purpose as well, mainly as the mounting system for the body. Using hook and loop mounts, the body can easily bee taken off and re-mounted without the use of traditional body pins and posts.

While I’ll take hook and loop body mounting over the traditional method any day of the week, I’ve found that it takes me a few attempts to get the body lined up on the mounting points correctly. Thankfully, the mounting material is forgiving enough to allow for some pushing and sliding to take place in order to get the body seated  “just right”.

The Chassis and Suspension Setup

If the body of the GEN8 got me in the door, the performance that’s served up by this rig is what truly sold me on it. The chassis setup on the GEN8 is quite good for a box-stock R/C crawler. The suspension and shocks have a very fluid, connected feel to them that rivals other higher-priced models. On top of that, the use of portal axles keeps this rig rolling, no matter how tall the obstacles in your path may be.

The combination of inner fenders and side-mounted electronics trays not only helps to finish off the visual feel of the GEN8 chassis, but they help keep the electronics and inner-workings of this rig clean as you venture further off the beaten path. I especially liked the sealed receiver box setup, which features exposed ports for plugging in LEDs, a winch, or other auxiliary electronics.

For as impressed as I was with the Redcat Racing GEN7 chassis setup, the GEN8 takes elevates that to a whole new level. The weight distribution, from bumper-to-bumper, feels spot-on, and I’ve rarely encountered situations where the performance of this crawler let me down.

The Motor and Electronics

Between the radio system, the steering servo, and the motor, the GEN8 is set up to provide you with solid performance right out of the box. The motor provides constant, steady power which keeps this rig rolling through just about anything;  snow, tall grass, and even ungroomed trails. While it won’t win you any drag races, the motor and gearing of the GEN8 provide plenty of low-end torque and smooth mid-range power for getting from “Point A” to “Point B”.

I have no complaints about the radio system either. It’s provided plenty of range and adjustability for the situations I’ve driven this machine in. 

The Tires and Wheels

Tires are one of the most critical components of any radio-controlled vehicle, whether you’re going for speed or just out for a stroll. If there is one area on the GEN8 that could use an adjustment, it’s the tires. And not the tires specifically, those are fine (if not great). The tire foams are what threw me for a loop on a few occasions. Made from a memory foam material, these foams would take longer than normal to return to their original shape.

While this doesn’t pose a huge issue, it could cause your rig to lack traction under certain circumstances. The memory foam inserts also become incredibly hard under cool/cold conditions. This turns your soft tires into hockey pucks and will impact the rig’s ability to maintain traction. On a snowy, wintertime drive earlier this year, the tires acted as pizza cutters and I found myself buried in the snow more than I was driving on top of it.

The Driving Experience

Even after months of driving, I still struggle to find a word or words to describe how this rig feels when driving it. “Grounded” is, up to this point, the best I can come up with. I even said as much to the engineering team at Redcat Racing when I visited them earlier this year. While “grounded” does an adequate job of describing the feel, it’s only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the overall driving experience.

Honestly, this rig has been nothing but pure joy to drive…and it’s been driven throughout the past few months. It’s seen its fair share of rocks, logs, tall grass, and a park littered with broken twigs and sticks. Every outing has started, and ended, with me grinning like a fool.

The Upgrade Possibilities

No box-stock radio-controlled machine is perfect, even the GEN8. While I’ve discovered a few elements of this rig that I’ve wanted to improve, I’ve been able to improve them thanks to a healthy aftermarket environment. Not only are there plenty of “general” 1/10-scale upgrades available for the GEN8 (tires, wheels, bodies, etc), but Redcat Racing has also released a fair number of aftermarket parts for this crawler. To get a feel for what’s available, check out my listing of upgrades and hop-ups for the GEN8. 

Is the Redcat Racing GEN8 Worth Adding to Your R/C Garage?

Short answer; yes. Long answer; well, there is no long answer. Just thinking back to the fun that I’ve had with this rig makes me want to power down my computer, grab my GEN8, and head outside. Yep, I’m a fan.

Even if there are areas where this vehicle could be improved, you’re starting out with a solid platform on which to build. At $299.99, that’s hard to beat. If you want to have total control over what goes into your rig from the start, Redcat Racing offers the GEN8 as a pre-assembled kit (the P.A.C.K.) for $169.99. Either of these options is worth looking into, especially if you’re a fan of fun. And let’s face it, who isn’t?

The Gen8 V2's body and bumpers are ready to have LED lights installed.

True to scale, licensed Interco IROK Super Swamper tires are mounted to functional beadlock wheels. Each wheel uses inner and outer beadlock rings for maximum strength and tire holding capability. This makes it easy to change out the foam tire inserts to suit each course and driving style.

Portal axles provide more ground clearance without needing bigger tires. On the GEN8 V2, much of the gear reduction happens inside the portal axles, which means less chassis torque twist than traditional axle shaft driven rock crawlers. The portal axles provide 54.5mm of ground clearance and include metal gear covers, metal wheel hexes, and CNC machined spools.

The Gen8 V2 uses an innovative dual design slipper clutch, which allows the driver to set the slipper clutch, or completely lock it out. The GEN8 V2 accepts a wide range of pinion gears from 9T all the way up to 23T and includes a 32P spur gear. This allows a gearing ratio of 28.12 to 71.85.  A sealed pinion and spur keeps the gears safe from rocks and debris. Heavy duty Mod 1 gears can be found in the transmission, transfer case, and portal axles. The Redcat Racing GEN8 features a front mounted motor and a divorced transfer case for competition inspired weight distribution.

Primary Competition: Axial Racing, Vaterra, RC4WD, but out of all of those heavy hitters the Traxxas TRx4 Sport is the Gen8s main competition.

Need to complete: To get this rig running you are going to need a few things. 4 AA batteries for the remote, a charger and battery for the rig itself. I would suggest a good 2s lipo but for the beginners I would go with any 7cell NIMH hump back.

Build Quality: After the Big Squid Scale RC crew went through the Gen8 with a fine-tooth comb all that was discovered was a loose wheel nut. Other than the loose nut the Gen8 was in tip top shape out of the box.

Test Venues: Delwood Park IL, Juicebox Off-Road Park, Crawler Canyon RC Park, Forest Park IL Beach

Turning: As with all RTR rigs, the servos tend to be one of the weakest links. The Gen8 is no different in the weak servo department. But unlike Gen 7, the Gen8’s steering geometry is dialed in. If you are just doing some trial running then you most likely won’t event notice the weak servo. But when it comes to a challenging terrain, like rugged rocks or trying to make it through comp gates, you will notice the slight lack of power from the stock servo. Very surprising is the stock metal servo horn, so when you
eventually replace the servo, there will be no need to upgrade the servo horn.

Crawling: This is the main purpose of the Gen8. We started off the testing in Juicebox off-Road Park and the Gen8 made light work of the scale trails and obstacles. Having the portal axles on the Gen8 lets this rig get over almost anything in its path without needing to have bigger tires and also gets rid of the pesky torque twist some RTR rigs tend to have. The stock shocks are some the best we have seen on a RTR. Not too stiff and not to soft, just the right amount of oil for the desired rebound you would want. The shocks also have the adjustable spindle if you are looking for a stiffer ride. When it comes to flex, the Gen8 will impress even the harshest of critics. Redcat also gives you the opportunity to set up the Gen8 to fit your personal driving style by having 9 mounting holes so you can adjust the suspension. Now, for the belly bulge we have been hearing people talk about. The divorced transfer case is the cause for the little bulge on the skid plate. I’m sorry but I can deal with a little ¼ inch or so bulge on the skid plate to have a divorced transfer case. Will it hang up while doing some hardcore crawling? Yes, it might hinder you slightly, but nothing a little harder pull of the trigger can’t fix. You know us, let it eat!

On-Road: As great as the Gen8 Scout looks on the road I wouldn’t spend a whole lot of time being a pavement pounder with it. The Gen8 was made and designed for off-road work so why waste all that hard work that Redcat has done by running the Gen8 in your driveway.

Grass: Ahh the scale prairie as I like to call it. The Gen8 drives and handles great running through some Grass. But like any RC vehicle I would avoid playing in the scale prairie for too long. Motors have a tendency to get hotter than normal if the grass is too high; the best use of grass is as a tire cleaner.

Tires: I have mixed feelings about the tires on the Gen8. The 1.9 Irok super swampers are the same tires that were on the Gen 7, not a big deal, I know. The first long test run we just could not get the tires to hook up. Basically, lots of wheel spin but no forward progress. Granted the first test run was on a terrain that consisted of water, moss, mud and slippery rocks. As the testing continued the tires got better and better. And by the time we took the Gen8 to Crawler Canyon RC Park we were surprised at
how much the tires had come around since day one. Give the tires some time to break in from their out of the box stiffness. Once the 1.9 Irok super swampers are broken in they are not bad tires to have in your crawling inventory.

Power: The Gen8 Scout packs a 17T 550 motor. I love to have the wheel speed when I need it, who doesn’t, right? There is nothing more frustrating than being stuck on a hill climb or in a mud hole and knowing that if you just had a little more punch out of your motor you would be all good. The Gen8s 17T not only gives the needed wheel speed but also delivers some powerful torque. Even if the stock motor takes a dive I think I would just replace it with another 17T 550. As far as your battery choices go I would definitely go with a 2s 5,000mAh. If you want to go crazy the ESC can take a 3s, but I think we all know what happens when you put a 3s in a crawler, broker parts.

Radio: Nothing ground breaking with the stock remote. The Gen8 comes with a standard Redcat 2.4GHz. During one of the testing sessions the Gen8 remote was accidentally dropped down a 15ft cliff and happened to tumble right into a creek. We thought for sure that the radio was done for but after cleaning the mud off it still worked and is still working. Now we are not saying the Redcat 2.4GHz is meant to or can even handle that kind of abuse; just thought we would let you know about it.

Broken parts: When we got the Gen8 out for its test runs, I was trying to guess what parts we were going to break. Not a slight to the quality of the Gen8 but we are Big Squid and it is kind of cold at the northern office. Cold weather makes plastic parts very brittle no matter where they are on the rig. All and all we ran many multiple packs through the Gen8 and we only broke 1 thing. A cracked D ring on the bumper. We did loose a screw also, fell out of the servo link. By no means were we gentile with the Gen8. We sent it down some stairs, launched off of a scale cliff, almost lost it in a very fast moving creek and it still held up. We even took it to Crawler Canyon RC Park where rigs basically go to die. It may not look the prettiest after that but it’s still running.

Best Mod: Hands down the best mods for the Gen8 would have to be the servo and down the road some other tires. That is really all the Gen8 needs. With a good enough servo it would be unstoppable.

Misc Notes:
We knew the Gen8 was going to be a good rig but I don’t think anyone thought it was going to be as good as it actually is. For starters, the licensed International Scout II body is drop dead gorgeous. The front grill and rear tail lights are set up for led lights to be installed. The rotating side mirrors are a nice touch too. The mirrors have the capability to swivel making it so there is a lot less of a chance of them breaking off. The body attaches to the chassis with hook and loop tape. My first thought about the tape was that the body is going to be constantly popping off, but once again Redcat proved me wrong. I would say 1 out 10 roll overs the body fell off. The Gen8 also has a nice little feature with the receiver box. I for one am notorious for not putting the cover back on the box once I have opened it up. The new Gen8 receiver box lets you access the receiver without opening the box; you can change the esc or servo on the fly. Moving on to the chassis, the adjustable wheel base opens your world up to more and different body options. Also, the motor being mounted to the front of the chassis helps with some much needed weight and having the divorced transfer case leaves a ton of room for you master builders to put in a full interior. One thing I do question is that the C channel chassis is not the full length of the rig. It doesn’t affect the performance of the rig, it’s just a little odd. Redcat has always been good about using metal links and the Gen8 is equipped with them, but this time around the Gen8 has some gnarly metal diff covers as well. We can’t forget about those portal axles. It’s all about that ground clearance in the crawler world and Redcat made sure to give the Gen8 some about 44.5mm to be exact. Top that off with some metal wheel hex’s and by jolly ladies and gentlemen you have got yourself a decent rig!

Summary:
A= outstanding/Best in class, B = Above Average, C =Average, D = Below Average, F = Horrific

Time to bash: B. Getting up and running is quick, the truck comes fully assembled. Put in the radio batteries, and install a fresh pack in the truck!

Workability: B. After a good once over in the Big Squid RC Scale shop we think the only real issue you might run into when working on this rig is getting to the divorced transfer case. You will have to remove the battery tray to access transfer case.

Car Show Rating: A. The Gen8 is a head turner, there is not doubt about that. Redcat took the road less traveled with choosing the International Scout II as a body. When everyone is a Jeep or a Ford, be a Scout I say. The one and only thing that we think should have been done differently with the body is the windows. Clear windows would just make this right pop off the scale chart.

Bash-A-Bility: A. We did everything short of setting this rig on fire and it held up great. From top to bottom, side to side, the Gen8 is an all around solid rig.

Fun Factor: B. I don’t know if I had more fun taking pictures or running it. Whatever you like to do the Gen8 won’t disappoint you. If you are looking to do some scale trailing or entering your local box stock comp you are going to have a blast with the Gen8.

Handling: B. The suspension out of the box is fantastic. And when you get the Gen8 to flex you really see its capability. During the testing we had the Gen8 on a lot of different terrains and it handled them all very well. With an upgraded servo and tires this rig will drive like a caddy on a cloud.

Value: A+. This one is a no brainer, lets break it down. Licensed body, portal axles, licensed tires, metal links, adjustable wheel base, adjustable shocks and it comes RTR. And you get all that for $299.99, not only is this an excellent entry level rig, but even the hardcore crawlers can’t deny the value of the Gen8.

Parts Availability: (N/A) Unlike the past, you can now find Redcat parts in your local hobby shops. Now given the freshness of the Gen8, it may take about a month or so, you should be able to find parts in shops. Also, Redcat has already released a hand full of 3D printed parts files!!

BigSquid Rating: B+. Redcat Racing has made massive improvements in the last 2 years. The success of the Gen 7 really made the crawler world take note. And now with the release of the Gen8 it will put Redcat Racing at the top of the food chain. People no long hear the name Redcat and think cheap hobby grade RC. They now hear the sound of a RC power house raising the bar and that’s just what they did with the Gen8 International Scout II. Take note, this crawler season is going to be filled with Redcats!
