Powered by a brushed, 380-sized motor, the Temper Gen 2 rolls on 1.7″ wheels and 4.3″ tires. The tires feature a deep tread design and appear to be designed for the gnarliest of terrain.

Shedding its one-piece body in favor of a multi-plate, multi-material (polycarbonate and aluminum) body, this version of the Temper features an aggressive beauty with eye-catching features. Two color options are available (silver/yellow or silver/blue) with each option featuring matching beadlock rings.
