Classic beetle style and brawn fuse together with the FTX Bugsta, the latest heavy-duty 4wd off road vehicle from FTX. Using the same chassis platform as the hugely popular Carnage Truggy, the Bugsta captures best of buggies and trucks, with a bit of monster thrown in for good measure!

The 4wd shaft drivetrain features metal diff gears and front universal driveshafts, while an integrated slipper helps protect the drivetrain from possible damage under power. With adjustable turnbuckles all round and large bore oil filled shock absorbers the Bugsta can be tuned to suit you or the surface.

Control is via an Etronix 2.4ghz EX2 radio system, with power being provided via a brushed 550 motor, electronic speed control and a Voltz 1800mah NiMH battery, with steering being handled by a waterproof 9kg metal geared steering servo.

Want an r/c vehicle that is as much fun as it looks then the FTX Bugsta is the ride for you!

excellent first RC car

Wasn't honestly sure what to expect but this buggy really delivered. Perfect as a first RC car for older kids, it's really quick, works out of the box, great on rough terrain and with the right battery it'll go like a train. On that note make sure to get at least a 4000mah battery as it'll only last 12-15 mins otherwise with a child ragging it.

Great value off road truggy

I’ve been using this with my kids and it’s a great model - 4wd and big wheels takes you over most terrain, very stable handling, good distance on the transmitter ( still works when the car is almost out of sight) and a reasonable turn of speed. The included battery and charger are a bit basic but can be upgraded. You can change the mode of the ESC to support a 2s LIpo as it has a LVC built in, which would make it quite a bit quicker. Parts supply is also very good and several ‘Hop ups’ are available. The only reason I took a star off is the battery and charger and the suspension arm holders, which do break quite easily, though this may be intentional to save the suspension arms.

Great for the price.

If you are looking for a starter car this will tick all your boxes, but don't expect something that will last. Within the first 10 minutes of getting it out of the box, I crashed into my fence and broke it. It was a quick fix and with so many upgrades it's easy to get parts.
