Reviews
24 FTX KANYON
As the name suggests, FTX’s new trail crawler is bigger
than usual and is based around a multi-link suspension
set-up with adjustable oil filled shock absorbers for the
best off-road handling, topped off with a Lexan body
complete with accessories for a bold scale look. Jerry
Ibbotson heads to Ilkley Moor to put the machine through
its paces.
46 SCHUMACHER TOP CAT CLASSIC
The second of Schumacher’s re-releases is the Classic
based on their first dedicated 2WD buggy, the Top Cat.
Driven by demand by potential customers, the 2019 model
not only fills a void for a rear-wheel drive model in their
vintage line, but does it a great price too.
58 TAMIYA TT-02B FIRST TRY KIT
Ready-To-Run models have become very popular taking
