With so many new releases for 2024, we thought we’d get a jump on new model announcements in this edition of Tailpipe. Now available from FMS is their latest 1/24-scale off-road crawler, the FCX24 Lemur.
Designed to fit a unique niche, it was designed to combine high-speed off-roading and extreme crawling, all packed into one tiny package. The Lemur is the latest addition to the FCX24 chassis family by FMS, and it’s here to redefine the way you experience off-road adventures. It’s not just an RC car; it’s a brand-new off-road journey waiting to happen. FMS has taken the seemingly contradictory performances of high-speed off-roading and extreme crawling and seamlessly fused them into one compact vehicle.
The Lemur’s key features include a four-link suspension system that provides exceptional stability and articulation. Whether you’re navigating rocky terrain, steep inclines or uneven surfaces, this crawler maintains its composure, ensuring a smooth and controlled ride. Its portal axles offer increased ground clearance and reduced torque twist, making it easier to conquer challenging obstacles. The Lemur’s LED light bar not only adds a touch of style but also ensures you can keep the fun going even in low-light conditions.
Precision driving control was designed into the way the Lemur handles. The little crawler responds to your every command, whether you’re navigating tight corners, making steep climbs or taking on daring descents. What makes the Lemur most unique is that it is a crawler that’s also designed to catch some air and jump, adding an extra element of excitement to your outdoor adventures. It’s all about pushing the boundaries and experiencing the thrill of off-road racing.
It wouldn’t be an FMS vehicle if it wasn’t packed with scale details, and the Lemur doesn’t disappoint. Its interior is highly detailed, making you feel like you’re in the driver’s seat of a real off-road machine. An immersive experience is all part of the package. It’s available in three eye-catching colors—red, orange, and green—and comes complete with transmitter, USB charger and rechargeable 2S LiPo vehicle battery.
FMS’s FCX24 aims to combine the best of both worlds—high-speed off-roading and extreme crawling. That’s a fun and unique spin on off-road vehicles, especially ones in 1/24 scale. If this is what we’re kicking 2024 off with, we’re excited to see what other FMS releases the year will bring us.
