ALS Racing have released the first pictures of their new 1/24th scale chassis, called the M242. Designed specifically for use on carpet, the car is powered by 2 Lipo cells or 6 AAA cells and due to its design and construction, as well as newly designed ball differential, the car can achieve high cornering speeds and provide lots of racing fun.

Enabling a great performance advantage on carpet, combined with the use of foam tyres, the set features a machined 3.4mm thick carbon fibre 6-cell chassis plate, which is extremely stiff and perfect for these high grip conditions. A great feature of this chassis plate is that along with the recessed mounting points, to lower the overall centre-of-gravity, the cell slots have be pre machined so no extra preparation in this area is needed. Also included in the set is stiff, front and rear, upper plates that also sport extensions that enable you to further stiffen the chassis by mounting the 4 supplied aluminium posts to both the upper and lower plates.

Ready to go right out of the box, the E-Firestorm is factory pre-assembled and pre-painted, built from tough nitro truck parts and designed using the latest computer software and engineering know-how.
The design of the E-Firestorm is unheard of at the price level it will be offered at – previously, there were only two choices when it came to electric 2WD RTR trucks: very expensive yet fragile watered-down race trucks, or durable low-cost trucks with limited performance.

You get the handling and performance of the top racing trucks as well as the durability and value of other RTR trucks!
