It now incorporates many improvements and refined parts to meet modern R/C requirements. New features of the Avante (2011) include an assortment of carbon fiber parts for improved strength and durability, universal shafts as well as cam-loc wheel caps. In addition, the package comes with the same design, dimensions, and blister-type packing as the original. The ultimate pure racing buggy Avante is back!

High Performance Racing 4WD Chassis
Shaft-driven 4WD chassis features a longitudinally-placed motor and a new 2mm thick carbon fiber double deck setup which replaces the original FRP decks for increased strength. The FRP rear damper stay has been changed to a 3.5mm thick carbon fiber part to improve rigidity. Just like the original, the 4WD system adopts a front and rear planetary diffs and a center ball diff setup. A total of 23 ball bearings are used to minimize friction loss. In addition, the front and rear gearboxes come with three convenient hatches to allow you to check the gear condition and perform simple maintenance. 4-wheel double wishbone suspension features metal threaded shafts with ball-ends to enable fine-tune the suspension. Original die-cast front knuckles are changed to aluminum ones which feature the same shape as the original. Other features of the original, including radius arm protector which absorbs shocks to protect the suspension arms from damage and cam-loc wheel caps that securely hold the wheels in place remain the same. With all these new improvements, you will enjoy hours of fun driving the high performance of Avante (2011) just like the original.
