Over the past year, I’ve been holding out hope that Carisma would re-introduce a small-scale, go-fast, ready-to-run (RTR) model into their lineup. After announcing their GT24B and GT24R kits, I wasn’t sure what to expect next, but thankfully, they’ve answered my hobby hopes with two new RTR rally car models.
For fans of jellybean-styled, compact rally cars, the Carisma GT24 Hyundai i20 is a beautiful small-scale replica of an on-or-off-road racer. Featuring a licensed body design and details such as side mirrors, a rear spoiler, and roof vent, this car looks stunning while not in motion. And to be honest, that may be the only time you can get a good look at it.
At the heart of this road-ripping rally car is an 8000kv brushless motor that’s sure to provide plenty of power for this scaled-down radio-controlled car. Also included in the RTR package is a 7.2v NiMh battery, 2.4GHz radio system (transmitter and receiver), and a 5v USB charger.
Priced at $129.99, the GT24 Hyundai i20 Rally Car will be available for purchase directly through Carisma and through their dealers. Visit carisma-shop.com to learn more about this small-scale R/C rally car.
