Carisma’s UK Test Track Will Make You Cry (Tears of Joy)

Carisma’s UK Test Track Will Make You Cry (Tears of Joy)

I’ve seen some impressive R/C track layouts in my day, but this video of Carisma’s UK test track takes the cake. Featuring dips, curves, elevation changes and whoops, this track has just about anything you’d need to test the durability and performance of a small-scale radio-controlled vehicle. Feast your eyes on this clip as a…

A Small-Scale Skatepark Assault Featuring Carisma’s GT24M & GT24TR [Video]

One of the lingering questions you get after buying a new R/C vehicle is wondering how hard you can push the vehicle…before it breaks. While no vehicle is bulletproof, there are some brands which have made a name for themselves from a durability standpoint. While Traxxas, LaTrax, ECX, and even Redcat Racing have showcased the…

Review: Carisma’s GT24B R/C Buggy

Review: Carisma’s GT24B R/C Buggy

Having completed my review of the Carisma GT24T, I turned my attention to another one of Carisma’s small-scale machines, the equally sporty GT24B buggy. Although these two cars share many of the same components, their similarities stop when you mash the throttle. And believe me, there was plenty of throttle-mashing during this review. Carisma GT24B…

Review: Carisma GT24T R/C Monster Truck

Review: Carisma GT24T R/C Monster Truck

Small and speedy sum up this brushless-powered, 1/24-scale, 4-wheel drive monster truck. Smaller-scale (1/18 and under) radio-controlled vehicles can get a bad rap for not being on-par with their larger-scale counterparts. I’ve written, on more than one occasion, how my view of these small machines has changed over the years. Smaller doesn’t always mean less.…

First Impressions: Carisma GT24B Radio-Controlled Buggy

Following in the tire tracks of our last “first impressions” look is another small-scale, radio-controlled vehicle from Carisma. This time around, I’m taking a look at their GT24B buggy. As with other models in their GT24 lineup, this vehicle features 4-wheel drive, brushless (8000kV) power and runs on either 1S or 2S LiPo batteries. Unboxing…

First Impressions: Carisma GT24T Radio-Controlled Monster Truck

Small and speedy sum up this brushless-powered, 1/24-scale, 4-wheel drive monster truck. Carisma has been a brand of radio-controlled vehicle that I’ve long wanted to take a closer look at. Across their product lineup, they offer a number of attractive on-road and off-road vehicles, in multiple scales and appearance levels. While their larger-scale vehicles feature…

Carisma GT24T 1/24 4-wheel Drive Micro Monster Truck

Carisma GT24T 1/24 4-wheel Drive Micro Monster Truck

If I had to name one type of radio-controlled vehicle that had a lock on the “fun department”, it would be the monster truck. While a majority of the machines on the market aren’t super “scale” in appearance, what they lack in exterior details, they make up for in raw power and durability. There isn’t…

Carisma’s GT24TR 1/24 4-wheel Drive Micro Truggy

Carisma’s GT24TR 1/24 4-wheel Drive Micro Truggy

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…

ECX Roost 1/24 Desert Buggy

ECX Roost 1/24 Desert Buggy

20016 is shaping up to be the year of small-scale radio-controlled machines for ECX. Following in the tire tracks of their 1/24-scale Temper Rock Crawler and 1/18-scale Roost Desert Buggy, a new vehicle has emerged. Meet…the ECX Roost Desert Buggy, this time in 1/24 form. Along with a shared name, this smaller, ready-to-run (RTR) off-road…
