  • FTX Punisher Plus - large scale 4wd petrol buggy

    The FTX range have certainly proved their worth over the years offering good specs and sensible price tag but of the best kits has been the large scale 4wd petrol buggy known as the Punisher! But if you can adam and eve it, they've only gone and made it even better, check this press release out for the full scoop!

    Enjoy the thrills of large scale off road with the new and improved FTX Punisher Plus. The legendary strength and performance of the Punisher continues, but with new upgrades and extras all at a reduced price!

    1/5th off road large scale is a tough environment for any model. It generally is also an expensive one. With these elements considered the new Punisher Plus price point and specification should help allay most fears.

    The Punisher has always boasted heavy-duty features such as the all steel transmission gears, CNC aluminium steering knuckles, CNC aluminium chassis braces and suspension blocks, and these are all still standard issue.

    Large bore, aluminium oil filled shock absorbers soak up the rough stuff, while the sealed gearboxes house adjustable oil filled differentials. The low mounted centre placed fuel tank helps keep the CG low for improved handling and performance.

    So what’s new? Updates now include the choice of an Etronix Pulse EX2 2.4ghz radio system and new jumbo size metal gear 20kg rated servos for the throttle as well as the steering.

    The term Ready-To-Run is often over used, but other than fuel and AA batteries the Punisher Plus is complete. Now included is a 6v receiver battery, receiver battery wall charger and an Etronix voltage regulator to protect electronics against voltage spikes.

    New nylon chassis side guards provide protection and stop dirt ingress for the chassis, while the new painted bodyshell schemes and black wheels add a more racy edge to the Punisher look.

    It has never been easier to experience the thrill of petrol powered off road.
