Carisma Scale Adventure - SCA-1E Coyote - unassembled deluxe scale truck kit (285mm wheelbase)
Welcome to the ever growing world of Carisma Scale Adventure. You are now part of a global movement that has taken the RC world by storm and combines the best of modern RC technology and design, with old school model making skills, hand detailing, painting and a word often not associated with RC...realism. The RTR SCA-1E Coyote has become a runaway success for Carisma Scale Adventure. It's introduced the joys of Trail Running and Scale Rock Crawling to thousands globally and been an affordable entry point for many into the world of Radio Controlled vehicles.
The SCA-1E Kit has been designed by scale enthusiasts, for scale enthusiasts. From its inception the original SCA-1E has proved such a global success as a RTR, it was an obvious choice to become a kit release. It offers an affordable way into the self-build scale scene and will allow the end user to tailor it's final look and performance to their own taste and abilities. Go as detailed or as simple with the build as you feel. Make the kit an extension of your own personality, and from the minute you start the build, personalize it any way you want.
Well, the wait is finally over, and the first SCA-1E kit is now ready. It's based around the Coyote but has a few subtle upgrades and changes from the RTR. As well as the Steel C Section Ladder Chassis, Locked Axles, Flippable Central Transmission, Steel UJ's and Prop-shafts, the Weight bias has now been optimised straight from the box. The new CMS (Chassis Mounted Servo) mount places both the Steering Servo and the Main Pack forward of the transmission, and directly over the front axle. This improves the rigs ability to climb inclines and generate traction when crawling and the mount also acts as a Chassis Brace, reducing Flex and keeping the geometry of the rig as true as possible, even under the most demanding situations.
The adventure starts the moment you open the box, and continues every time you add to the scale detail, run and further modify the rig. It evolves as you do. It grows as you do. By the end of the process you will have a rig that not only performs well on trails and when out crawling, but one that also looks as realistic as possible too. Scale Realism is a term often used to describe these genre of vehicle, and here at Carisma we pride ourselves on offering you that little extra in this department. Wing mirrors, grille detail, bumpers, door handles and wiper blades all add the final touches to a shell that optimises retro off road, and the kind of vehicle we all aspire to build and own in real life one day.
Build it stock and it runs trails with ease, or embark on milder forms of rock crawling, and own a rig that's not only very capable, it’s also extremely durable too. Go past stock and a world of possibilities opens up. Detail the body, weight the wheels, tune the shocks and spend time getting the component layout just right for the optimum weight bias, and you have a rig that's DNA has been proven to be RECON G6 capable, the stock RTR being fully G6 Certified in 2017 over a gruelling 12 hour Fix Enduro, attaining a second place finish in the team event. We've taken that original design and improved it further for the kit. It's not over complicated, so by building it yourself, you will know it inside out, and maintenance, repairs and future upgrades and tuning are easy to administer.
The kit sports a CMS (Chassis Mounted Servo), with a forward mounted battery tray to fully optimize weight bias and improve the rigs crawling capabilities. The new battery tray accommodates standard brick style LiPo cells or standard stick NiMH packs. New alloy bodied, oil filled, coil-over shocks keep the wheels firmly planted to your running surface. We improved the upper shock mounts and chassis bracing, to offer multiple upper shock positions and a stiffer feeling C Section chassis. The SCA-1E has evolved, but the price point remains competitive and affordable to all. We want this sector to continue to grow and encourage as much new blood into the hobby as possible. Scale has no boundaries of age or gender. It’s not elitist or expensive. It’s fun and about being at one with nature and embracing each new run as a true adventure.
New stiffer, multi-position shock towers allow the oil filled, coil-over shocks to work more efficiently, and fine-tuning of their action simply by altering their upper mounting position. More upright offers a stiffer ride, more shock angle, a far more supple and confirmative one.
Finally, we've also designed a new true scale Beadlock wheel system, with a deep tread soft compound all terrain tyre to generate grip regardless of the surface you run on to complete the kits specification. Be as streamlined or as detailed as you feel. Add LED's to the built in light buckets and prepare for night runs. Add waterproof electrics and run in streams, attack mud, dirt and rock with equal measure, and most of all do it all in style with a photorealistic bodyshell and details like wing mirrors, front grille and even wiper blades. The SCA-1E Coyote RTR not only wins on price, but also performance, detail, and durability.
