ALL-METAL SHAFT DRIVE
;e Berserker utilizes a standard
shaft-driven 4WD drivetrain that is
found in most 1/8-scale vehicles,
so you know that it will be reliable
and strong. ;e pinion gear spins a
steel spur gear with 49 mod1 teeth that’s
mounted to the center di;, and it uses
steel universal driveshafts to transfer the
power to the front and rear gearboxes and
the di;erentials found inside. One side of
the di; mount features an aluminum stando;
that doubles as a motor mount. ;e motor itself
is attached to a round disc with o;set mounting
holes; when the motor is rotated, it moves the pinion
gear into or out of the spur gear to adjust mesh. Universal
driveshafts are used on all four corners to spin the 17mm hexes.
A 49-tooth steel
spur gear is included
to handle the power of the
1450Kv brushless motor and 6S
worth of LiPo power.
WITH A TWIST
Independent suspension is used to soak up
bumps and jumps, and in the rear you’ll find a
traditional lower H-arm with adjustable upper
link; in the front, however, there’s something
a little di;erent. It uses a pivot-ball suspension that is very di;erent from what we are
used to seeing. Normally, pivot balls ride in
a large molded hub and caps adjust tension
on the balls. On the Berserker, pivot balls are
attached to the top and bottom of a standard
hub and they ride inside large rod ends. ;e
front and rear inner hingepins are held in place
by aluminum pivot blocks that utilize plastic
pill inserts, which allow you to make changes
to toe and kick-up.
;e unique pivot-ball suspension
features adjustable pivot-ball
tension and orange-anodized
aluminum steering blocks.
Aluminum suspension pivot blocks use plastic pill
inserts, which allow you to change the toe and
kick-up angles quickly and easily.
Adjusting the gear mesh is a simple task using the cam-type motor
mount. Simply loosen a couple of screws and rotate the motor until
proper gear mesh is achieved.
