FTX BUGSTA RTR 1/10TH BRUSHED 4WD OFF-ROAD BUGGY

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!

Do you sell the complete antenna for this model
Asked by Paul Stead on 12th October 2016

If it's just the antenna tube you need, you can use something like part number WM-003

If it's the antenna wire itself, that is soldered onto the receiver PCB, so you'd need a new receiver.
