Basher Adds 1/10 Tourer to BSR Econo-Racer Line [VIDEO]

We just  reviewed the BSR M.Rage in the latest RCCA, and that carbon-fiber flyer had us wishing BSR would offer the same race-caliber construction in a 1/10 tourer. That car is here with the release of the BT-4. As the pics show, it follows the current super-narrow trend in TC design with the spur gear sandwiched between a pair of closely-spaced belts, and the suspension has all the adjustability expected of a track car. Full deets below from seller HobbyKing.

From HobbyKing:

BSR BT-4 1/10 4WD Touring Car is the second on-road racer from BSR, using the highly successful Team C TR10 chassis as a starting point with a bunch of racing enhancements already included such as carbon fiber shock towers, a rear gear diff, low profile ball ends and super smooth aluminium shocks. This is a perfect entry level touring car or a new kit for any driver who knows they don’t need a bank loan to buy a competitive car.

The geometry on the BT-4 is designed for top level on-road racing and includes adjustable ride height and droop, camber, toe and roll centers, steering throw and Ackerman as standard out of the box with a huge range of option parts available to set the rear toe, chassis stiffness and body roll. We have had drivers all over the world testing this car and the resounding response has been “I can’t believe how good this is for the price”.  Most agree that the chassis offers an amazing amount of grip because of the level of flex in the chassis.

It’s the attention to detail that stands this car apart from others in its class, from the chassis cut out to allow the motor to be mounted as close to the ground as possible, to the CVDs front and rear to the extra-long body mounting arms on the rear that help keep the body as rigid as possible to the top mounted servo bracket, this is an all-round race bred kit. It even includes a highly resilient polycarbonate race body that you can paint in your favorite race scheme and racing slicks and dish wheels that simply need gluing.

Being an un-assembled kit you are going to need a bunch of electrics to get the car built so choose what you need from the huge range of TrackStar ESC_.html” target=”_blank”>ESCs, SERVOS and MOTORS . Eventually you will want to start fine tuning your chassis with SHOCK OILS and SET UP & TUNING EQUIPMENT, we’ve got you covered and at prices that can’t be beaten. On-road is all about setup and TIRE choices which is half the fun, you are the driver, mechanic, engineer, pit crew and team manager, a one person race team.

So get ready now for the next on-road season, build yourself a BT-4 and START RACING!
