REVIEWS
12 ECX TORMENT SCT
The 4WD Torment SCT offers a
high spec that includes a Spektrum
DX2E radio, bearings, oil-filled shocks,
battery and charger, wrapped up in an
RTR package that makes it easy to get up and
running, as Matt Ellis found out when he gave
the short course truck a thorough thrashing.
24 CARISMA M40S LOTUS V6 CUP R
The Carisma range of RTRs are famous for their great looks
and attention to detail. Their latest M40S model features
the stunning Lotus V6 Cup R on top of the popular 4WD
chassis complete with working LED lights.
46 TAMIYA TT-01E BUGGYRA FAT FOX
The latest in Tamiya’s 1:14 line of racing truck models
based on their TT-01E chassis is the Buggyra Fat Fox
that deviates away from the MAN brand and goes with
a Freightliner body design for a very different look. With
the interest in this RC class growing at club level, we
couldn’t wait to see how the truck was received and just as
importantly, how it performed on the track.
58 FTX COMET TRUGGY
Today, what does £70 buy you? A small trolley of shopping
from the supermarket, a tank of fuel, or a 1:12-scale 2WD
in Ready-To-Run form – pretty impressive right? We took
one of the four Comet models, the Truggy out for a test to
see how a sub-£70 RTR fares in the real world.

Price: £5.00
