The 55th edition of the All Japan Hobby Show is held this week in Tokyo, Japan with most of the important Japanese and Asian companies in attendance. First up is Carisma who have their all-new 4XS 1/10th 4WD race buggy on show. Developed in cooperation with a well-known European RC car designer the 4WD buggy is based on a carbon fibre double deck chassis, it features a shaft drivetrain with 3-disc slipper clutch and, from what is understood, the buggy can utilise both shorty and saddle pack battery configurations right from the box. Other features of Carisma’s first ever competition kit include alloy suspension mounts with composite inserts, aluminium big bore shock absorbers and a mid-cab design bodyshell with aerodynamic tuning features. The kit should become available shortly.
