The Carisma M48S Porsche 959 won’t hit the states until March but it already has several staffers fighting over who gets to drive it first. To make it even worse, the folks over at Carisma have decided to wet our appetite even more by putting up a new video featuring the Porsche in action. The video shows the 959 tearing it up on the beach, throwing roost and generally have a good old fashioned bash session. Click to the video below to check it out yourself, and hit up This Link to visit the official Carisma website.

Since getting our hands on some of the recent Carisma vehicles, and telling you about them, we have received weekly emails and Facebook messages asking people can buy them, and when they are coming to the US. Well, that question (that we have had the answer for little while now, but couldn’t share) is that YES they are indeed coming to the US! Officially March 1st 2014 they will be available from www.TheJericGroup.com. The Jeric Group will be their official distribution channel in the US, so you will most likely be able to get the vehicles in local shops, or online at several retailers. Carisma mentions that they will have vehicles AND parts readily availalbe on March First. This is pretty huge news, as we know there has been a large group of people drooling over their new vehicles for a while now. If you are a hobby shop owner, we recommend giving the Jeric Group a call because we know a lot of people looking for these, and they will be happy to find them on your shelves. At least give a few of them a try!
Carisma also let us know that www.Imodel.fr will be their official distributor for France.
We are happy to see Carisma make it’s way over to the USA. Their vehicles have been really great (Check the reviews at This Link) and we are looking forward to some part support as well.
Check the Official Carisma Website for more info.

THE Carisma GT16MT Brushless 4wd RTR Review
Nope, you can’t buy Carisma here in the states. However, you never know when they might get picked up, so to stay “ahead of the curve” we are busting out some reviews of their products. Today we’ll be taking a closer look at the GT16MT, a 1/16th scale, 4wd, RTR, off-road truck. The first Carisma we reviewed was arguably the toughest truck we’ve ever tested, could our second review truck possibly live up to our expectations? Does the brushless powerplant in the GT16MT have plenty of rip? What do we really think of Carisma? Click the “Read More” to get the party started…
While the new Carisma vehicles haven’t made their way stateside (quite yet), their line-up of bashing vehicles continues to grow. Check out the new Carisma M10DT as we unbox it for the first time.
We were nicely surprised by the flat paint on the outside of the vehicle, as it takes an interesting twist to being also on the tires, the bumpers, and anything else exposed. It’s almost as if there is a artist on the Cariama assembly line painting them as they go by.. or at least we like to imagine it that way.
Another interesting surprise was the parts tree in the box for the accessories. There are actually two of them. Our resident model painter was digging this for sure, and is looking forward to getting started.
We will have a full review in a couple weeks after we get some serious wheel time in. For now, check out our unboxing pictures. To get more information on all the products that Carisma makes simply hit This Link.

Carisma might not be available here in the states (yet!), but they sure have a cool looking bash line-up. Today we’ll show you what it looks like to pull a brand new Carisma GT16MT out of the box.
The pictures below don’t really show the scale of the GT16MT but it is a big “mini”. The GT16MT dwarfs an Associated RC18T and is substantially larger than an 18th scale ECX Ruckus. The other thing that stuck out during the unboxing was the lexan undertray and buggy body/inner tray on the Carisma.
Our full review goes live in a couple weeks, until then check out our unboxing pictures. To get more information on all the products that Carisma makes simply hit This Link.

THE Carisma GT10DT Brushless RTR Desert Racer Review
Daily our hobby changes. Off-road buggies have gone from cool looking scale derived machines, to UFOs, and now they are headed back to looking like something you might actually be able to see in real life. The crew over at Carisma and their new GT10DT continues the trend back to scale realism. The GT10DT packs plenty of features like brushless power, 4wd, and a 2.4GHz radio system, all of which should make it a good bash machine. So it is? Is it a good basher? Hit the “Read More” button and find out…
Here you go guys, some unboxing pictures of the new Carisma GT10DT Desert Racer. We took lots of pictures while unboxing our test unit to show you exactly what it’s like to crack the box open.
The GT10DT is somewhat smaller than a 10th scale buggy, the final two pictures show it sitting next to an Associated B4 to give you some reference. The GT10DT has a unique yet scale look, and features goodies like a 2.4GHz radio system and brushless power. Our full review goes up next Tuesday, October 1st, until then check out the pictures and you can hit This Link to visit the official Carisma website.
