Desert trucks and buggies are all the rage. Racing across sand dunes and open plains with the foot to the floor in an over powered vehicle sounds like fun. Well Carisma have put together they're own take on this new craze with the M40DT Desert Truck. Modelled around the entry level M40 4wd shaft driven chassis platform, the M40DT is an all terrain vehicle ready to tackle anything.

Carisma have produced an awesome scale finished bodyshell that mixes matt body sections with gloss. This costly and time consuming process leaves an unusual look not seen on many models before and really provides some added realism. Front bumper lights and roof lights (that can have optional LED’s fitted) along with twin rear mounted spare tyres finish off the M40DT.

Underneath the 4wd chassis features full ball bearings and oil filled shock absorbers. Differentials use full metal gears so that they can handle the brushless power from the 540-size 3000kv motor. The brushless speed control, steering servo and receiver are all water resistant.

Control is from Carisma’s own 2.4ghz radio system and XT-60 high voltage battery connectors are includedto use on your choice of battery power.

Enjoy some off road fun with some added scale realism with the exciting M40DT Desert Truck.

What is the difference between brushed and brushless
Asked by Charlie Horwood on 13th August 2016

Brushless motors are a much newer technology. They are much more efficient, so you end up with more speed and higher battery life.  The only downside is that as they are newer technology, they are significantly more expensive than brushed motors.

What does "Short Course Truck" mean?
Asked by Charlie Horwood on 14th August 2016

Short Course Trucks (SCT) are simply this style of car.  They have a large bodyshell that fully encloses the wheels.  They are based on the full size trucks they race in the USA.
