FMS FCX18 LC80 Overview, Upgrades, & Action [Video]

Of the many small-scale R/C releases that I’ve driven this year, the FCX18 Toyota LC80 from FMS is contending for the top spot in my favorites list. The scale looks are more than backed up by the solid performance and power that’s packed into this 1/18-scale trail machine.

FMS sent me an FCX18 to take a closer look at, and it didn’t take long before I started throwing some upgrades onto it. While I made some performance-focused changes, most of my customizations were cosmetic in nature.

Here is my overview, bench drive, and upgrade rundown for my FCX18 LC80:
