Carisma SCA-1E '86 Subaru Brat RTR, 1/10 - CRS81068


Product Information

Carisma Scale Adventure is proud to announce their latest release, a 313mm Wheelbase SCA-1E version of the iconic 1986 Subaru Brat, or 'Bi-drive Recreational All-terrain Transporter' to give it its full title! It’s ingrained in both automotive and Radio Control history with its immediately recognisable flowing lines and ahead of its time styling.

History Re-Written, Re-imagined & Reborn

The original vehicle was designed in Japan as an Export Only vehicle and was sold in most major territories under different guises. It soon had a global following, with even President Ronald Reagan owning one on his ranch late into the '90s. Interestingly it also became a cult gray import vehicle back in Japan itself. The nostalgic design still inspires Off-Road RC fans off all ages, but until now it was only available in RC circles as a 2WD self-build kit. But times have changed...

When combined with the durability and performance of the exciting SCA-1E bloodline and Gen 2 Hop Ups, you have a rig that just at home bashing and trail running as it is rock crawling. Keep it box-fresh for that classic 80s look, or add additional detailing like a working Winch, Scale Accessories and LED lighting to take things up a notch.

Stock, it’s the perfect Trail Runner, yet still capable of milder forms of Rock Crawling. By weighting the front wheels and adding any of our own range of performance accessories, like Brass Hexes or Diff Covers, you can then hit the rocks and attempt difficult lines and obstacles. We didn't compromise any of the spec or detail, so you shouldn't have to compromise where and when you can run it. You decide its destiny, and in turn, it becomes the start of your own Scale Adventures, or the perfect rig to introduce a new generation of your own family to the joy of RC as a hobby.

*NOTE: This is a 'NO BATTERY' model, so 4 x AA battery for radio and a suitable 7.2V NiMH or 7.4V 2S LiPo main pack & the correct charger will be required to complete.
