Carisma CRF-1 Classic Team Lotus 98T Kit

Carisma CRF-1 Classic Team Lotus 98T Kit

Carisma has released details on an upcoming on-road chassis kit, based around their new CRF-1 platform. Paying homage to the classic Lotus 98T Formula 1 racer (piloted by Ayrton Senna and Johnny Dumfries), the Carisma CRF-1 Classic Team Lotus 98T Kit will give you just about everything you need to create a functioning, 1/10-scale replica.

Among the highlights of the CRF-1 chassis are its 2-wheel drive design, ultra-light carbon fiber chassis, multiple adjustment and tuning points, and much more. While a relatively new entry into the R/C world, this chassis has already been track-tested and has claimed the first BRCA F1 National for the 2019/20 season.


The items required to complete this Formula 1 kit build are:

  • Wheels and tires
  • Polycarbonate paint
  • Electronics (Motor, ESC, Radio System)
  • Assembly tools

Pricing information has yet to be released for this model, however, you can learn more about it at
