Carisma has upgraded its most successful rig to make it even better while keeping the price affordable, making it one of the best value rigs available today. The rig now features an Officially Licensed TOYOTA TACOMA TRD Pro Body, which offers not only hard-body realism but also a weight advantage due to its polycarbonate material. The multi-part body has added injection-molded scale detail and is pre-fitted with LED lights at the factory to help illuminate your way on rocks, trails, or even urban environments.
The TRD Pro True Beadlock Wheels are unique to this rig and ensure that the 95mm Ultra Realistic ATSS tires stay firmly on the rims. The Gen 2 layout, with CMS Mount and forward-mounted battery, offers a forward weight bias to aid crawling, making it ready for action! The issue of torque twist, inherent in all shaft-driven rigs, has been addressed with the ATT (Anti Torque Twist Transmission) which counteracts and reduces the effects of torque twist by rotating the front and rear center drivelines in opposite directions. This creates a counter-rotational force in the central driveline that significantly reduces twist and enhances traction when you need it most. The rig runs flatter even at full throttle, and the geometry is more stable and predictable when rock crawling.
The rig now has the fully programmable ARC-2 Electronic Speed Controller as standard. With 21 Programmable Performance Parameters, including PWM Frequency, you can fine-tune the ESC with the included and easy-to-use MPG-1 programmer. The gear ratio has been lowered to 5.92:1, giving a smoother low RPM range and greater control. The CSA 5-Pole Motor generates immense torque and low RPM throttle finesse, which is essential for exploration, trail running, and rock crawling. When matched with the ARC-2 ESC, this offers a formidable combination of control and power.
Carisma's CTX-2000 2.4GHz radio system is supplied with the RTR rig. Featuring Steering Rate adjustment, Steering, and Throttle Trims, Channel Reversing, End Point Adjustment and F.H.S.S (Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum) Technology for glitch-free use eliminating cross-channel interference and offering precise and responsive control at all times. With a unique 1-2-3 Throttle Profile Switch, it allows users of all abilities to have complete control of the rig. From seasoned RC enthusiasts to complete RC newbies, Carisma has you covered. Also included is a 1400mah NiMH battery and a safe 5V USB Charger to get you started on your adventure, although the ARC-2 ESC is also LiPO friendly, offering you a clear future upgrade path.
The rig's dimensions are as follows: Wheelbase: 313mm, Length: 510mm, Width: 210mm, Clearance: 75mm. With its tried and trusted electronics and impressive features, Carisma's most successful rig has evolved to become one of the best value rigs on the market.
