Our friends at Carisma announced their 4Y24 1/24th Scale 4WD buggy kit. The 4Y24 kit is based on the original GT24B running the latest 2.4 GHz radio gear and Brushless electrics now available. The robust and well engineered 4Y-24 4WD Buggy Kit incorporates all the features you would expect of a class leading model. It’s the perfect starting point for any serious 1/24th race buggy build.

Independent coil over suspension works with 1/10th Race Buggy inspired A-Arms to keep the tyres generating grip, while the slipper clutch protects the driveline from undue stress when jumping or changing from high to low grip surfaces. Tough gear diffs, front and rear, allow for a true 4WD “Lift Off Oversteer” dynamic, and can be fine tuned by changing the viscosity of the internal grease used.
