You flip the switch and drop the fully charged Blackout XTE to the ground. Clutching the pistol grip in your left hand, you squeeze the foam steering wheel with the finger tips of your right hand. Your eyes squint as you focus on the path ahead. Squeezing the trigger, you hold your breath as dirt replaces the air around you. All of life’s worries fade away as you focus on the path directly before you. Your peripheral vision blurs as the only thing that seems to matter, in that moment, is the precision of your steering and the finesse of the trigger. You accurately steer the Blackout XTE 4WD monster truck exactly where you want it to go. Excellent performance and innovative chassis design make the Blackout XTE a unique vehicle. Its chassis utilizes many swappable components such as; suspension arms, steering hubs, hub carriers, turn buckles, gear boxes, differentials, and body posts. Each of the four suspension arms on the Blackout XTE can be used at any corner of the chassis. That's right, one lower suspension arm will work on the front-left, front-right/ rear-left, or rear-right of the vehicle. The same is true for the upper suspension arms and steering hubs. The hub carriers are interchangeable front to rear, as are the bumpers, diffs, gear boxes, body mounts, and turn buckles. Equipped with a powerful 550 brushed electric motor, waterproof 40A brushed ESC, 7.2V 3000mAh NiMH battery pack, NiMH charger, and 2.4GHz radio system, the Blackout XTE is pre-assembled and ready to run. This incredible vehicle provides loads of excitement, at an affordable price, while continuing to save you time and money in spare parts. Oil filled coil over shocks and four wheel independent suspension allow the Blackout XTE to keep its composure over rough terrain, as you’re blasting around the yard, vacant lot, or race track. As the battery nears the end of its charge, you pull the Blackout XTE to your feet. Your finger tips slowly loosen their grip, your chest relaxes, and you hear the sound of air releasing from your lungs. It’s as if all of reality begins to surround you once more. In that moment, you know that you have just experienced the Blackout. Get your Redcat Racing Blackout XTE toda

First off let be begin by saying that I am not new to this hobby. So my review of this car is relatively accurate.
The car arrived in it's display box without any other outer wrap or box. The box came partially unsealed and the one piece of factory tape seal that remained was yellowed and peeled from age. Not overly impressed from the go! Someone was in an awful rush to stuff this thing out the Amazon warehouse door post haste! This was a sold and fulfilled by Amazon product, so you can imagine my surprise!
Upon unpacking the truck I noticed an older variant of the transmitter which indicated that this car is a few model years old. Strike 2. I'm willing to take one on the chin there and get this car ready for action. This was a family gift and we we're all chomping at the bit to get the batteries charged and the car outside to run for the first time.
Once everything was bound up and ready to run we noticed a very loud clicking aost grinding sound coming from the drivetrain.
This could have been a couple of different problems. I contacted Amazon immediately and let them know the issue we were experiencing. Waiting on a replacement at the time of this posting. Just checked tracking.. will update this review if/when the "new" one arrives.
Second time drying out I noticed the car listing to one side on the front end, the cone washer on the front shock was missing causing no pre-load on the shock !!. Well I made sure the other side was loaded but after the car dried out again the other side cone washer was GONE !
I contacted customer service and was given the complete run around goat rope E-mail chase that was horrible and completely a waste of my time. I was contacted back to verify order number then to verify purchase location. I ended up sending screen captures of the original order with all the information they asked for in the couple e-mails they sent to verify my order. I have heard nothing since and it has been a week.
So I fixed the shocks for now while I wait for the new shock (I ordered on my own) set to arrive in the mail by zip tie-ing the bottom of the spring to the shock ram to add some pre-load to get by for now. Also I swapped out the receiver with FlySky I had from another model.
Beware potential buyers you will be on your own with this model and I understand now why the price point is so cheap !!
First 5min of use i noticed the wheels are extremely wobbly. After inspecting they are warped. I reached out to the seller to ask about the issue. Will see about response.
I decided to try to take this out for a spin on the open road. It’s extremely fast. Much heavier than the recent volcano i purchased.
What i noticed:
It is very loud. The gears or drive train sound like there is something lose or grinding.
After about 20min of use there is a burning smell coming from the motor.
This has been a disappointment so far. The volcano was purchased 3 weeks prior and has been a blast. No issues with that. It’s fast, much quieter; yet a bit lighter.
This one is a bit faster and heavier; even though it says 1/10 it is smaller than the volcano which is also 1/10.
Waiting to hear from the seller and will follow up with customer service before I do anything. Right now, considering a return and get another volcano.
I give it 3 starts because overall it is a fast fun truck. Looks nice! The shocks seem much more stable and are adjustable where the volcano is not. It is heavier which has its pros and cons. Going over small bumps causes a tumble. Not as much clearance and it causes the nose to hit things sooner which also causes a tumble as the fast speeds it can move. Volcano has a bit more clearance and wheels are bigger so coming off small bumps or jumps; the volcanos wheels hit first. Were this one; the nose will hit first causing it to roll.
It is slightly hard to control no matter how much I make adjust but that might be due to the warped wheels.
I’ve had this truck and the xte pro for 6 days and so far both servos broke, the red body already had the body posts come through it leaving about half inch cracks in the body. And the run time with the 2s Lipo is about 10 minutes using it in my backyard. Was pretty happy when I received and now I think I made a mistake. Ordered 2 new servos and will see how that goes. Probably will have to buy another body soon too
