Element RC has released the Enduro ZUUL trail truck! The Element RC ZUUL shares the same chassis design as the Element RC Ecto, with a few differences. The wheels and tires, along with the body on the ZUUL are different, as well as the scale garage. The ZUUL has been a blast to drive, as are all of the Element RC rigs. Durable and capable, I find myself grabbing the Element RC rigs for trail runs more and more.
I know when I get out on the trails, the rigs will perform when I want them to, and still be able to pull off some wicked scale pictures. Imagine a seesaw, one side you have scale, on the other you have performance. When making a rig it is hard to keep that seesaw level. Too much scale and you will lose performance, too much performance and you will lose Scale. Element RC has done a great job at keeping that seesaw as level as they can. By releasing rigs like the ZUUL, Element RC is able to give you a level base and leaves the choice to the hobbyist on whether they want more performance base, or a full-scale build.

The scale garage that the Element RC ZUUL comes in has to be my favorite so far. The garage looks like a normal attached garage and is filled with 90s nostalgia! But it was when I seen the KORN sticker on the garage door, that sealed the deal for me.
Element RC has a great future ahead of them if they keep doing what they are already doing. We want to give a big thank you to Element RC for the continued support! As for now, I got an Element RC ZUUL that needs some Scalin Squid flavor. Till next time, have a great week and Keep Scalin’!
