Basher Hits The Road With The M.Rage
Basher’s heading into new territory with the M.Rage, the brand’s first on-road effort. Surprisingly, the car isn’t standard sedan-size, as in 190mm wide with a 255(ish)mm wheelbase. Instead, the M.Rage is scaled like Tamiya’s “M-chassis” cars, with a 210mm wheelbase at 165mm wide. Actual scale size depends what body is on the car. It’s technically 1/10 scale with its included Suzuki Swift body, but most of us would call the chassis “1/12 scale.” As for specs, the car is nicely equipped as Bashers usually are, and it’s got a low price–just a tick over $100. Aluminum shocks, full graphite, and shaft-driven 4WD with ball diffs are all standard stuff, full specs and Basher hype below.

The Basher BSR Racing M.RAGE 1/10 4WD M-chassis (Un-assemble kit) 210mm long, almost touching the ground, with just the right balance of stiffness and flexibility and a body that is sure to make you relive your boy racer days, when every road was your own personal race track in your Suzuki Swift, Ford Escort or Mini Cooper (depending when you were born) and the thrill of a well balanced car was more important than all out speed. Those days when you’d spend hours building a 1/24th scale replica of your little pride and joy in the garage.
The M.Rage is not only the first true on-road racing kit to be launched by Basher’s BSR Racing brand but, we have finally come out with something that our car customers have been constantly asking us for… a build it yourself kit, so you can enjoy the experience of bringing your car to life, right down to painting its neat little Suzuki Swift body.
If you’re a racer or serious basher you’ll love the tough carbon fibre chassis, carbon reinforced plastics for the swing arms and gearboxes, ball diffs front and rear, silky smooth aluminium shocks and a range of option parts to keep even the most competitive drivers happy.
Because this car is so small, light and nimble you don’t need a super fast brushless system to have fun, in fact we set it up with an old school 27T brushed motor for the video shoot and it was more than enough power to whip around an on-road track.
This is a genuine race car just in a smaller package than normal. So relive those halcyon days of building your own models and tearing up the streets with your hot hatch and get yourself the M.Rage from BSR.
