Wow that looks pretty decent :wow: Love how they bent the links to maximise under-body clearance. But given Redcat's pedigree I probably shouldn't be surprised. And, given their pedigree, I'll bet this thing can crawl right proper, like.

The spare on the roof is a nice touch. You see that a lot on overlanding trucks in Africa, and yet never seen it on a scale crawler. In fact all othe things on that roof rack are what you'd realistically have on your 1:1.

Good to see another option, but I think I would go for the Carisma SCA-1E as it's ,in my opinion, a better spec for less money.

Looking forward to seeing your views/review on it Geoff
Too much to list.....

Understeer is when you hit the tree with the front wheel.
Oversteer is when you hit it with the back.
Horsepower is how hard you hit the tree...
Torque is how far you drag it...

I get offended by individuals who get easily offened, get a life and enjoy it, life's too short

Obviously can't comment for Geoff, but I used to have one on my 1:1 TJ when I marshalled at 4x4 challenges. So everybody knew to do what I said or else, kinda thing.
