Redcat Racing Piranha-XTR-10 Truggy Review

If I could pick just one word to describe how I feel about the Redcat Piranha, it would have to be “Impressed.”

We review tons of RC vehicles and it is very rare when we find a vehicle in this price range that actually impresses us.

The large 1/10 scale size presents an awesome appearance. The size, combined with a unique mix between a truck and a buggy gives the Piranha an irresistible appeal.

Let’s take a look at our Redcat Racing Piranha Review video & then we’ll talk a little bit about why we love this truggy so much.

Redcat Racing Piranha-XTR-10 Truggy Review – Features

let’s take a look at some of the features the Redcat Piranha has to offer.


The Piranha features Redcat’s classic 540 brushed electric motor. As you seen in the video, it produces plenty of torque to get the Piranha up to speed quickly. The motor provides plenty of power to push through tall grass, water, mud & steep inclines.


redcat racing suspension

The Piranha comes with oil filled, adjustable shocks. The suspension is tuned to run on most surfaces, but if you want to make some minor adjustments to match some specific terrain you can.

Oil filled adjustable shocks are normally reserved for more expensive RC’s, so this was a pleasant surprise.

Waterproof Electronics

The Redcat Piranha features waterproof electronics that allows you to hit the trails with confidence.

Now…It is important to note that the Piranha is not a submarine! 🙂 It is not designed to be continually submerged in water.

That being said, we have ran it through plenty of mud and water without issue.

100% Ready To Run

The Redcat Racing Piranha comes fully ready to run. Within minutes of getting the Piranha out of the box, you will be ready to hit the trails.

They even threw in batteries for the controller!

Ready to run (RTR), means that everything you need to start bashing is included. Check out our Redcat Racing Piranha Unboxing video & then we’ll wrap it up.

    Whoa, what a cool racing vehicle!
    Awesome video! I love the speed of it on the muddy track 🙂
    It reminds me of the Dukes of Hazzards the way it goes around the curves like that.
