I tend to view smaller-scale R/C cars the same way that I used to look at potato chips. You can’t just have one and be satisfied. Whether it’s their ultra-portability, fun design, or seemingly limitless fun factor, these micro and mini radio-controlled vehicles are hard to ignore (and not stockpile). If you share the same outlook on small-scale R/C machines, or any scale of R/C for that matter), you’ll want to check out the latest from Carisma.
With a number of unique and stylish small-to-smaller scale radio-controlled cars and trucks in their lineup already, Carisma is continuing to bolster that line with a new, 1/24-scale micro truggy, the GT24TR. The level of quality and detail that is put into some smaller-scale models can be questionable, but from everything that I’ve seen and read, the same craftsmanship and care that is placed on Carisma’s “larger-scale” machines has gone into each of their micro vehicles. Couple that quality with an impressive spec-list and you have an all-around fun vehicle that’s ready to take on the world.
For starters, this model arrives in a ready-to-run (RTR) package, meaning you get everything that you need to drive, all in one package. Just charge up the batteries and you’ll be off on your adventure. Power for this micro truggy comes from an 8000kV brushless motor, which is fueled by a 3.7V (500mAH) 1S LiPo battery. That should provide plenty of top-end speed and boost for launching off jumps.
Turning to the chassis, the GT24R utilizes friction shocks/dampers and independent front and rear suspension. The chassis plate is molded plastic, giving durability and support for off-road excursions. Rubber tires give you the grip that you need, and lend control this tiny truggy.
