As used by Spencer Rivkin to win the 2019 IFMAR 2WD

chassis that was previously used for the Tamiya Dump
Truck, but now comes equipped with portal axles that not

too for greater control.
52 RC4WD C2X
The C2X is RC4WD’s brand new class 2 competition
truck and comes supplied built and ready-to-run with an
impressive chassis spec and an electrics package that
is more than capable. But just how good is this high-end
scaler? Head to page 52 to find out.
