The pivot ball steering system gives the driver sharp and accurate turning feedbacks. Both the Nitro and Brushless versions are assembled in the same factory and come with a race inspired base setup providing a vehicle easy to drive. The SWORKz Apollo comes with a 2.4G radio system with two SES-2S servos capable of up to 12kg-cm of torque, made by SAVOX. A pre-cut painted body shell is also included.
