About the model
This is a 1/10 scale R/C touring car chassis kit.

2 belt-driven 4WD uses TRF420 gear differentials and steel TA07 differential joint cups.
A-arm suspension arm gives your model a low center of gravity, enhanced with laid down dampers.
Camber and caster angles are adjustable by turnbuckle shafts and lower arm spacers respectively.
Comes with Super Short Big Bore size dampers.
Universal shafts and full bearings give efficient drive.
Rotating body mounts by 180 degrees switches between standard and 2mm advanced body positions.
