Toyan X-POWER Sand Cruiser Nitro 1/8 RC Car Desert Rock Crawler DIY Kit with FS-L200 Engine & 5 Speed Gearbox
Why Toyan Starts to Make RC Cars?
Some people might think it's another scale RC engine when they hear of the name " Toyan X-POWER Sand Cruiser". Actually, it's the first RC desert rock crawler that Toyan and X-POWER Team have tried to make this year. The Toyan CEO Ricky Teng, the head designer too, believes that the end of RC road is to make it more realistic. However, It's hard to find or there are no many choices for nitro stuffs in hobby shops in the current market that nitro seems to be definitely going by the wayside to the whole brushless /LiPo scene and the back order issue is across the whole spectrum of RC from the pandemic crap, compared to the electric. After selling scale nitro and methanol RC engines for years, Toyan finds that there are still a large group of hobby fans are loyal to and passionate about the nitro world and are not satisfied with buying engines for only being a desk decor or for collection. The hobbyists prefer to modify Toyan engines into the RC cars, boats and ships, or even aircraft and create many new way of play. In the early 2021, the fact that 2 cylinder water-cooled engine kits X-POWER have a successful crowfunding oversea, gives Toyan team confidence to make their own brand RC car. That's how " X-POWER Sand Cruiser" comes. Nitro willl be never dead.
What's X-POWER Sand Cruiser?
The first model "sand cruiser" was designed as desert off-road prototype with all metal holder, powered by Toyan FS-L200 nitro engine and a differiential front and straight real axle to balance both speed and off-road performance. dowload the manual here.

Why Should We Choose X-POWER Sand Cruiser?
１）Five mechanical speed are much more fun.
Toyan launched a new mechanical gearbox. A five-speed gearbox suitable for model internal combustion engines was finally born under the continuous testing and improvement of Toyan engineers and technicians. Three forward gears, one neutral gear, one reverse gear and integrated brake function, give friends who want to build their own oil-powered RC car a brand new experience of oil-powered RC model for the first time.
The integrated brake system is more realistic when loading the vehicle
２）all metal car frame makes the car safer & durable
except for all metal axle, gears and fasteners, the frame parts are all CNC finished. Different styles, but still unique.
the front axle adopts lockable differential mechanical lock to provide necessory guarantee for high speed driving and crawling .
