REDCAT GEN8 INTERNATIONAL SCOUT ROCK CRAWLER
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.

We only ship within Australia. Getting your goods to you safely and swiftly is of utmost importance to us. That is why we use a number of different carriers to ensure we can get your order to you regardless of your address or the size of your order. To ensure secure delivery of orders to the correct recipients our carriers all require someone to sign for the consignments at the final destination.
Delivery Costs and Times
Delivery charges and the time the order takes to reach you obviously depends on your location, how much you have purchased, and, what freight method you have selected. As a general rule we aim for a 24-hour turnaround from the moment your order has been received to the order being shipped from our Store.
Aussie Hobbies reserves the right to upgrade the freight method to a courier service at no extra cost to the recipient if the selected method of freight is inappropriate. Aussie Hobbies reserves the right to cancel an order if it deems the freight method is not appropriate to ensure the parcel arrives in an acceptable condition. Please note that items greater than 5 cubic kg's CANNOT be shipped to PO Boxes. We must have a street address for any order totalling over the 5 cubic kg mark, or, any order greater than 1050mm in length. As our carriers require a signature at the point of delivery it is a requirement that you provide Aussie Hobbies with a delivery address where someone will be present to sign for the consignment during business hours (9am - 5pm Monday to Friday). Work addresses are often given by customers to make this process easier.
Available Freight Options
Australia Post: This is an ordinary post service generally used for smaller items. This service is NOT insured, comes with tracking number/details, and, is used at the customer's own risk.
Couriers: We use a combination of carriers to ensure flexibility with delivery options. These services are insured and have online track and trace systems. On the customer's request we can instruct our carriers with an 'Authority to Leave' which does not require a signature to be taken. If this option is chosen the insurance is invalidated, and, if any consignments are 'lost' after our carriers have recorded the parcels as 'successfully delivered' they are not covered by Aussie Hobbies. ensuing search results should show you the current status of your order, and, it's physical location.
If your order is severely overdue, please contact our Customer Service Team on (07)3255 6626 between 9.30am and 5pm (Monday to Friday). You can also get in touch with our Customer Service Team via the contact form at our contact page. You will need to quote your order number in any communications with Aussie Hobbies.
If a package has been damaged in shipping and it is apparent when the package arrives at your door, please REFUSE the delivery. If you have already accepted a package and then discover that it has been damaged, call us immediately. If possible, please take photos of the damaged packages. If we are to put a claim into our freight company a photo provides fairly conclusive proof of where the fault lies. Be sure to save all paperwork and packing material with the damaged goods as the carrier may wish to inspect the consignment before processing the claim. Please do not return 'damaged in transit' merchandise yourself. Please contact us and we will make arrangements for the collection of the damaged goods, and, organise replacement product to be shipped to you. Returning the goods, yourself could also jeopardize your claim and keep you from receiving credit for the return.
If you receive defective merchandise, please call Aussie Hobbies for return instructions. In most cases we will accept returns and make adjustments, however, some manufacturers prefer handling defects directly. Defects found after the product is in use usually fall under manufacturer warranty. A customer service representative will be happy to help you determine which procedure is appropriate for you.
If you feel a box has been lost in transit, please call Aussie Hobbies with the order or invoice number and a list of the missing items. A track and trace search will be undertaken and enquiries will be made with the relevant freight company to try and locate the missing box. A claim number will be issued if the carrier does not show delivery within 10 days of the scheduled delivery date. Credit will be issued for the missing merchandise when we obtain the claim number from the carrier.
Should you receive merchandise that is missing a part please contact us. We will ensure that you are sent the part from our stock as appropriate. In accordance with a request from some of our manufacturers, we may direct the information or your call directly to the manufacturer.
Missing or Damaged Shipments
Please ensure that all boxes in your order are present, and, in a reasonable condition prior to signing for delivery. On occasion carriers may deliver orders over two different deliveries dependent on the size of the order. Please note that ground and air shipments can be assigned to separate trucks and may arrive at different times of the day. Please do not sign for boxes with exterior damage. This will immediately invalidate any insurance for 'Damaged Goods' and immediately becomes the customer's property in its signed condition. If the box has been delivered without the driver obtaining your signature, contact the carrier before opening the package. The carrier will need to inspect the box and verify any damage before a refund or replacement can occur.
For any more information, please contact us.
