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 3kg 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!

Pleasantly surpised!

Love driving this car. Decided to get this truck so that my nephew can have a car to run when he visits as he alwasy nags to run my more expensive cars. Figured cheap, brushed truck! dont expect too much. Took it for a bash in the woods last weekend on a 2s 4000mah lipo (stock nimh is rubbish) and i was pleasantly surprised how well it drives. Had a some tumbles and connected a tree trunk or two head on and it just kept on going. No breakages. Big wheels and soft suspension makes it glide over rough terrain but it body rolls heavily in corners which is ok by me kinda addds to the scale look. Might whack a brushless system and sway bars in there one day.

Bugsta

Great fun machine. Does what it says straight out of the box. Seems fast enough to keep the lad entertained and so far no breakages… yet. I did wince a bit when it was driven into a kerb at quite a lick (not full speed) but no damage…but it did make me think it should have a front bumper as it does on the back.

Excellent for the price

Bought this on a whim after years not having an RC car, which were always Tamiya. I liked the building but wanted a quick fix :)

Up and running 10 minutes after unboxing and was really pleased. Great specification for what it costs, with plenty of upgrades (and spares) readily available.

Everyone that expressed interest could not believe the value.

Would easily buy one again and the service from RCGeeks was top class.
