The Vanquish VS4-10 Phoenix Portal Rock Crawler Kit is the first platform to feature the Vanquish Products VFD Twin transmission (patent pending) and F10 Portal Axles. This combination provides performance advantages never before offered in a scale kit of its kind. The VFD Twin incorporates Selectable Overdrive Shifting and a 3-position dig unit into one compact package. The molded F10 Portal Axles utilize a high clearance design which minimizes the size of the pumpkin and maximizes clearance around the C-hub and knuckle. Connecting the VFD Twin to the F10 Portal Axles are the ISD10 driveshafts. The ISD10 Driveshafts have machined CV style joints at each end with molded splined shafts between them for smooth and efficient performance.

The VFD Twin Transmission (Patent Pending) kit is an evolution of the original VFD. Taking the same balance of performance, scale appearance, strength, and adding industry first features. The VFD Twin comes equipped with selectable overdrive and rear dig. Twin shifting transfer case utilizes replaceable bearing plates, a brass pivot for the shift arms, and chromoly shift slides. Borrowing from the proven Hurtz dig, the VFD twin shifting is smooth and reliable. On the fly overdrive shifting from 6.5% to 33% makes an immediate change to the driving characteristics and tuning options. Plus, if you don't want to invest in additional servos for the dig or overdrive, both systems feature a mechanical lockout system so you aren't required to run these features unless you want to!  

The F10 Portal axles benefit from Vanquish Product’s years of experience in making the industry’s best aluminum axles. The molded F10 Portal axles feature an ultra rigid design with an integrated truss that ties both ends of the axle together, as well as brass inner reinforcement tubes to add more strength and provide some weight down low to the vehicle. 

Vanquish Products VS4-10 Chassis is made to provide you with a balance of scale looks and unhindered performance. The steel C-channel design provides scale detail, molded front and rear cross members fill the chassis rails in the highest stress locations for ultimate strength and provide features like dual servo mounts, winch line routing, and a fuel cell. The molded rock sliders come with a replaceable tapered outer portion that perfectly fits the Phoenix body. The VS4-10 chassis is developed to work with the VFD Twin transmission to keep the overdrive and dig servo low on the platform. The panhard mount on the chassis is made from machined aluminum to withstand the impacts of severe trail conditions. Molded shock towers capture the top of the 80mm Incision S8E Shocks in double shear for maximum support. Narrow molded front and rear bumpers maximize clearances while improving approach and departure angles.

The VS4-10 features Incision 80mm S8E shocks with larger 8mm bore aluminum threaded bodies, dual X-ring seals, locking preload collars, keyed spring cups, polished steel shock shafts, and machined pistons. The front 3-link with panhard suspension provides scale looks by keeping the servo out of sight, while still providing room for full suspension travel. The suspension pivots on a full set of stainless steel links to keep the weight down low with a smooth transition from the link to the rod ends.
