Furitek Katana

Would’ve given it 4-1/2 stars but you can’t give 4-1/2 stars. Great truck but the reason I’m taking a half of a star is because the u/joint drive shafts broke within five minutes. In their defense the electronics are worth the price.

Awesome!

Great little rig. It really should have metal parts, twisted my drive shaft after a few runs.

For the brushless systems, swap it into another rig

If you wanna go brushless getting the katana is definitely the way. I’m actually just going to swap the powertrain into my TRX4M. I was able to get 30% off because they had a memorial day sale. Which brought the cost around $160 shipped to my house and if you get the system stand alone, you don’t even get a receiver and it’s 165 as far as the actual katana rig is two stars compared to trx4m at least an inch and a half of slop in the driveline meaning that you can push it forward or back about an inch and a half forward it engages the transmission. There’s a ton of slop in the portal axles as well as the transmission gears itself if this was my first, I would be very disappointed, but again, I’m using it to swap into my trx4m. So the katana itself mediocre the brushless system 10 out of 10.

Extremely Capable Crawler Right out of the Box

This is one of the most capable RC Crawlers I have ever driven out of the box. The app for the ESC is amazing. You can literally make this thing crawl slower than a snail with it. You can also tune on the fly with it.
The tires are pretty good, fairly sticky. I did take out the inserts for more grip. Be aware, they are 1.2 inches, so there aren't that many aftermarket tires out that size yet.
Some people have mentioned the front "clip" can be hard to close to lock the body on. I found if I press on front of the Katana, it's a lot easier to lock it.
Can't beat the performance for the price, highly recommend.

FX 118 Katana kills it!!

I am really enjoying driving this new release from Furitek! Right out of the box this machine is more capable than almost any other out-of-the-box mini crawler out there. Coupled with great looks is the fantastic capabilities. It is a great crawler and can crawl up many lines my other rigs just cannot handle, even the moded vehicles I have. The control provided by the FOC technology that comes with this unit allows superior performance in all types of situations. The stock frame, shocks, electronics and more are all items that would be considered upgrades to many other manufactures vehicles.

I love the looks of this green monster! Aggressive and nicely designed, this vehicle looks ready for business. While many have been critical of the front grill, I absolutely love it!! I see many actual Jeeps with very similar aftermarket modifications to make it look like the Furitek design. Kudos Furitek!

While this vehicle is great, it is not perfect. I am looking to change the tires and wheels. The wheels are fine, but I’d like a little customization on my rig. The tires however, seem to be just a little too stiff for my liking and driving style. Finally, while the body latch does work well when engaged, the latch on my vehicle is still stiff and difficult to get to side into place. I will likely replace that latch with a simple magnetic system.

Great work Furitek! I love this vehicle. I am afraid you have ruined me to non-FOC equipped vehicles and driving.
