True to scale, licensed Interco IROK Super Swamper tires are mounted to functional beadlock wheels. Each wheel uses inner and outer beadlock rings for maximum strength and tire holding capability. This makes it easy to change out the foam tire inserts to suit each course and driving style.

Portal axles provide more ground clearance without needing bigger tires. On the GEN8 V2, much of the gear reduction happens inside the portal axles, which means less chassis torque twist than traditional axle shaft driven rock crawlers. The portal axles provide 54.5mm of ground clearance and include metal gear covers, metal wheel hexes, and CNC machined spools.

The Gen8 V2 uses an innovative dual design slipper clutch, which allows the driver to set the slipper clutch, or completely lock it out. The GEN8 V2 accepts a wide range of pinion gears from 9T all the way up to 23T and includes a 32P spur gear. This allows a gearing ratio of 28.12 to 71.85.  A sealed pinion and spur keeps the gears safe from rocks and debris. Heavy duty Mod 1 gears can be found in the transmission, transfer case, and portal axles. The Redcat Racing GEN8 features a front mounted motor and a divorced transfer case for competition inspired weight distribution.
