The Carbon Assault comes with the AX2 2-Speed Transmission, a battle-tested design that consists of a CNC alloy case and hardened steel gears with a first and second gear shift setting to set to your preference. The machined delrin spur gear and slipper pad help prevent damage to the gears which will keep your truck running longer.
The RC4WD Plastic D44 Wide Front and Rear Axles feature a center rear diff housing for a more realistic look. The front axle has 8 degree knuckles, adjustable caster, removable diff covers, hardened steel gears and XVD axles. RC4WD also offers a differential gear set for the D44 axles.
The axles come with upgraded CNC axle trusses and aluminum axle tubes. By using aluminum instead of plastic, we can ensure these components stand up to the rigorous demands of a racing monster truck.
The driveshafts for the Carbon Assault are designed with heavy duty metal uni-joints with tough plastic shafts for great driveline angles and power delivery.
The officially licensed King Off-Road Racing Shocks are the most realistic scale shocks on the market. They feature CNC billet aluminum, faux piggyback reservoirs and can be oil-filled. The finish is polished aluminum with blue anodized details and laser etched King Off-Road Racing Shocks logos. Optional spring sets are available from RC4WD for even more tuning.
The front and rear sway bars come standard on this chassis. They are milled from billet aluminum and can be mounted in two different locations for maximum tuning.
The chassis features inward and outward mounting options for the shocks and the sway bars. This is made possible by eight CNC shock mounts, each with 3 different mounting positions. The sway bars are mounted by small aluminum stays keeping them firmly attached.
The upper and lower suspension arms are mounted to a CNC center skid plate. The links are made from Billet aluminum featuring our robust M4 size rod ends. The lower suspension arms have recessed rod ends for added durability.
The Rumble Racing Monster Truck Racing Tires are in the X3 compound and feature an aggressive traction pattern. They are mounted to the Ignitor 2.6" Monster Truck Racing Beadlock Wheels that have functional Beadlock rings, CNC 12mm hex, and realistic center caps.
The RC4WD Manticore Lexan Body Set has distinct styling with a molded in front bumper, and grille details. The crisp body lines and high wheel arches perfectly mimic full size Monster truck body styles. Separate front and rear light buckets for LEDs are also included in the box.
The sticker sheet for this truck has an all new mascot. Carbon Assault isn’t just a name, it’s a mindset that is reflected in the included graphics. It means innovation, speed and down right performance. Use the graphics included for the pre-painted body or create your own paint scheme to take on the competition.
The chassis also has plenty of great design elements including the realistic monster truck profile appearance, laser etched logos on all the CNC parts and engraved RC4WD on the lower carbon fiber chassis.
The Carbon Assault includes a high quality XR3 Channel 2.4Ghz Radio System. Use the third channel to shift between first and second gear for multiple driving experiences.
The Carbon Assault is powered by the RC4WD 540 Crawler Brushed Motor 27T. With its sealed end bell for increased durability and long lasting performance, you're sure to get where you're going!
The Carbon Assault features the RC4WD Outcry Extreme Speed Controller ESC w/ Program Card. This program card allows multiple esc parameter adjustments including throttle, breaking, BEC, and so much more.
A great truck needs a great servo to get you out of those tough spots and the Carbon Assault features the Twister High Torque Metal Gear Digital Servo. It boasts over 300 oz/in of torque at 7.4V.
Its ALL in the box! Everything you need is provided to get the truck up and running.

- Use good quality hex drivers to avoid stripping screw heads.
- Use thread lock when putting metal screws into metal parts.
- Steps marked with an asterisk (*) require thread lock.
- Use thread lock sparingly.
- Do not over tighten screws, otherwise you may strip the thread.
