Default Autorc Geko24

Has anyone seen or got one of these?

Look what I found on AliExpress
AutoRC 1/24 GK24 v2 full metal simulation climbing frame KIT Assemble Climbing RC Car Parts Version Assembled remote control car-in Diecasts & Toy Vehicles from Toys & Hobbies on Aliexpress.com | Alibaba Group

Just wondered if they were any good, they look pretty cool!

There's a new version being released with updated axles - got the details off the Facebook group page...

Good quality kit and nice beadlocks and tyres.

Wheelbase is adjustable and there are 2 chassis lengths.

Mine is a SWB - needed LWB for a 1/24th WC53 Carryall

Nice, is it worth the money do you reckon? Thinking of putting a 1/20 yota body on it that I've never got round to mounting on losi axles.

How long did it take to arrive, similar time to Banggood stuff?

It's a perfect fit for 1/24th Tamiya and Aoshima Yota bodies.

You may struggle with tyre size for 1/20th...

That's pretty cool, but that's a lot of cash for an unfinished, Chinese mini.

Cheers for that, I'll see what 1/24 kits are in the attic I think there are still a few up there. Guess I'll be ordering one, I just get so impatient with the waiting.
You ordered the new orlandoo yet?

That looks great, lots of nicely machined metal parts too! Nice job on the Cruiser hardbody setup on there JimboWa!

@wheatyman - I didn't like the Jeep Orlandoo as much as the F-150 (more customisable IMO), so probably won't be getting the Pajero...

@Natedog - cheers, the Cruiser was an eBay purchase already built by someone who knew how to paint, so I can't take credit for it!

It's a work in progress (aren't they all!) as I'm going for a scratchbuilt tin shell for the GeKo24.

Fair play jimbo, you'll have to share how you get on with the tin top
I like the jeep as it is but I believe the pajero will be a little longer and should fit under a Land Rover 109 kit I've got easier that cutting chunks out the f150.
I've got another f150 that Im building up to get a small 1/24 Chevy kit onto .... at some point

Looks pretty damn solid for a micro. I'd imagine it'll crawl like a champ with those heavy axles.

Hi,
are there any new and more informations about the AutoRC GK24 / Gecko24?

I wonder, why so few people have it.
Found it only on Aliexpress.
Asked Banggood some weeks ago, if they will offer this kit in future, too. But they answered, they do not know yet, probably not.

Why there are so few vendors selling this kit? (so far only found Aliexpress and few vendors at Ebay selling some parts)

Find very few videos on Youtube, some of them already more than half a year of age.


Would love to buy and build a micro rig with the AutoRC chassis.
But since it is not cheap, and there is so few information about it, I still have hesitated.

What is the downside of this rig?
Why there is so few information?
Price?
Proline Ambush is expensive, too ... and many people bought it.

Hey Walter, there's a group on the terror of Facebook and Don Gargon is the European importer.

They are pretty much unknown ATM and very kit based as well, so not a cheap solution once everything is purchased...

Don had his first delivery last week, so people will start to get their parts soon.
