Back In Black
Carisma Scale Adventure are proud to announce another new release for 2021, the 313mm wheelbase SCA-1E Ford F-150 in Black! Our original American classic, has now evolved into a shorter 313mm, 2.1 Spec rig. We've kept all the original scale details, and the classic Ford F-150 Pickup look, painted it black and have taken the overall Spec and Performance to a whole new level. She shorter wheelbase adds to the rigs abilities when Crawling and makes this American workhorse even more desirable.
Upgraded & Enhanced
With our SCA1E Gen 2 layout as standard, the Ford F-150 including our CMS Mount, offering a Forward Weight Bias that combined with the shorter Wheelbase aids Rock Crawling. This places the battery pack and Steering Servo right up front and over the front axle. We also addressed the issue of Torque Twist (something inherent in all shaft driven rigs), as CSA have recently developed our new ATT (Anti Torque Twist Transmission) that counteracts and reduces the effects of Torque Twist.
This is done by ensuring the front and rear centre driveline spin in opposite directions and flipping the rear diff. This creates a counter rotational force in the central driveline that significantly reduces torque twist and enhances the available traction where you need it most...at the wheels. The rig runs flatter even at full throttle, and the geometry is more stable and predictable when Rock Crawling.
Increased Control & Torque
Alongside our LiPo friendly ARC-1 Electronic Speed Controller, we have also lowered the gear ratio in the transmission to 5.92:1 giving a smoother low RPM range and greater control. To compliment this we have introduced a new Sealed Can 17T 5 Pole Motor, with the greater magnetic force over a 3-pole motor, thus offering enhanced Torque and Throttle Finesse.
But it's not all about Crawling, the 17T motor has the ability to still produce wheel speed when required, for trail running. Being a sealed can, the motor will be more weather resistant and require minimal maintenance between runs, a must for all Scale Adventurists.
Body & Finish
Giving the fully Licensed Ford F-150 body a Black finish makes the chrome of the Grille, Wipers, Wing Mirrors and Wheels stand out even more. This complete contrast really suits the rig, and further enhances it's original 1970's look. As with the previous release, the body is also LED Ready and accepts our own or third part LED Kits. The chrome, 1.9 True Beadlock Wheels allow you to add further weight to each rim if you want to fine-tune the Weight Bias, and to complete the Wheel and Tyre package, our very own soft compound ATAT (All Terrain Adventure Tyre's) offer great all round performance.
Tried & Trusted Electrics
The trusty Carisma CTX-8000 2.4GHz radio system is supplied with the RTR rig. Featuring Steering Rate adjustment, Steering and Throttle Trims, Channel Reversing, End Point Adjustment and F.H.S.S (Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum) Technology for glitch free use, eliminating cross channel interference and offering precise and responsive control at all times. We also include a 1400mah NiMH battery and safe 5V USB Charger to get you started on your adventure, although the ARC-1 ESC is also LiPO friendly offering owners a clear future upgrade path.
