Electric R/C Car Series no.699
1/10 R/C 1992 Audi V8 Touring (TT-02)
Item No: 58699
The Audi V8 is something of a legend in the German Touring Car Championship (DTM), having taken back-to-back championships in 1990 and 1991. It also raced in 1992, with a more powerful 3.6-liter V8 engine and improvements across the board, and powered by Audi's famed quattro four-wheel drive. Highlights included a clean sweep of the podium in the first race at the Nürburgring, the second meet of the season. This R/C model assembly kit recreates the 1992 iteration of the V8, with a polycarbonate body capturing its powerful form in style. Also included are front and rear polycarbonate light cases, plus stickers to recreate sponsor logos and red livery sections.
★Left: Polycarbonate light cases and stickers combine for a highly realistic depiction of the headlights.
★Right: The eye-catching, slimline side mirrors are captured by separately molded plastic components.
★Left: Like the headlights, taillights are also depicted by polycarbonate light cases and stickers.
★Right: Silver color mesh wheels are a two-part design for a highly detailed and realistic look.
TT-02: Adaptable, balanced shaft driven 4WD
The shaft-driven 4WD TT-02 chassis employs a longitudinal layout with the battery on the left and the motor on the right, to give excellent stability. In addition, it features identical left and right suspension arms and uprights for ease of assembly, plus easy-to-maintain gearboxes. It is a highly adaptable chassis, as it offers 2 different wheelbases, 2 ground clearance settings and 2 tread set-ups in addition to a range of 10 possible gear ratios. It is not short on looks either, with brake disc-shaped wheel hubs and stylish front bumper supports. Black 10-spoke wheels use tread patterned semi-pneumatic tires.
★Left: Resin ball links in the steering linkage joints make for smooth, comfortable motion.
★Right: Wheel hubs are shaped to look like brake discs.
