Basher made a name for itself with the Nitro Circus monster and short course truck models (which we reviewed in the May 2014 and September 2014 issues, respectively), and has now added a rally car to the low buck, high-performance family. The BSR Rally is built like a 1/8 scale buggy, and well-equipped with 17mm shocks, 2100KV motor, and 4S-rated 120a speed control. Batteries are up to you, everything else is included with this fully RTR model. Price varies depending on your country, but US buyers are looking at just under $320.
Official deets after the pics.
The BSR Rally has a nicely proportioned body and we like the 12-spoke hoops. If it’s like the Nitro Circus trucks, decaling will be left to you.
Hook-and-loop straps hold the battery of your choice, up to 4S LiPo. The single connector on the speed control means you’ll need a series Y-harness if you want to run a pair of 2S LiPo packs.
Looking good back here, with included sway bars and diffuser styling on the rear bumper. The aluminum shocks have 17mm bores.
The small transmitter is functional but likely to be upgraded quickly by many buyers.
New from Basher, the ready-to run BSR Rally 1/8 Scale rally car!
Built on a rugged buggy platform with refinements to handle the rigors of on AND off road driving, the BSR Rally is a beast of a vehicle!
The BSR Rally 1/8 Scale rally car features a monster 4-cell capable brushless power system and puts all that power down through an all steel 4WD drive transmission. With big bore alloy shocks and heavy duty components, this car can launch off almost anything and just keep on goin’. The chassis features all the same adjustability you would expect from a full race vehicle including camber, toe, and shock position so you can tune your BSR Rally for every surface condition.
The attention to detail on this car is extraordinary. The engineers and designers at Basher underwent an extensive testing and development process to ensure no shortcuts were taken. Team Basher understands the importance of after sales support and offer a full range of spares for your battle scarred car along with an awesome range of hop-up parts to upgrade your ride.
