What experts liked
The shocks are filled with aluminum capped oil and furthermore, the body is made from polycarbonate material for high durability.
- Jen Reviews
The Hobbywing ESC is waterproof which allows you to race the car in mud and in rain. It comes equipped with overheat and overvoltage protection.
- RC Gear Lab
The body has been meticulously designed and comes with aluminium capped oil filled shocks.
- Geeklah
The Volcano is a 1/10 scale RC truck that easily bashes through varying terrains that leaves many other RC’s struggling and it’s ready to run right out of the box.

The ESC, Receiver and Servo’s are waterproof and great for rainy days, or fun in the mud.
- RC Trucker
Powerful 540 motor, the Redcat Racing Electric Volcano EPX is one of the best-selling RC monster trucks under 200 dollars
- RC Car Club
The polycarbonate body is flexible and resistant to scratches, shocks, and dirt. These features are more than necessary when we’re discussing the body of a racing truck that is bound to reach a puddle or two. Especially for this scenario, the guys at the Redcat Racing made all the electronics (servo, ESC, and receiver) waterproof.
- RC Rank
What experts didn't like
Low battery life of about 10-15 minutes but high charging time up to 3 hours.
- RC Gear Lab
There is no provision for the charger for remote.
- Geeklah
The run time may seem a little short.
- RC Insiders

The charged gives you only about 10 minutes ride time, and time to charge with the included charger takes about 6-8 hours.
- RC Trucker
Thin plastic body
- RC Car Club
Battery charging time is too long.
