34 TAMIYA M-08 CONCEPT
The eagerly awaited M-08 Concept is Tamiya’s newest
M-Chassis and based around a rear-wheel drive set-up.
The Concept name highlights that this, like the M-07
model is a competition-focussed machine, and so once
Dan Wooster had built our review sample, it was time to
hit the track.
52 FTX OUTBACK FURY XTREME
The Xtreme is the latest model in the Outback Fury line
from FTX and is supplied as a rolling chassis, allowing the
owner to choose their own radio, speed controller, motor
and battery. The chassis comes equipped with a range
of option parts as standard so we chose some quality
electrics and hit the Yorkshire Moors with.
64 SCHUMACHER COUGAR LAYDOWN
The Lowdown is the latest Cougar model in Schumacher’s
line-up of competition spec 2WD buggies. As raced by
the likes of Tom Yardy and Ellis Stafford to success at
the British Nationals, our review not only looks at the
package, but also addresses the model’s strengths and
suggests the best option parts to ensure you get the very
best from the model at the track.
