|In the Hunt for Victory
The Zakspeed Ford Capri Turbo Group 5 car featured a 1,427cc four-cylinder DOHC engine matched with a stretched body that was the result of extensive wind-tunnel testing and was far evolved from the original 2-door Capri road version. It was a participant in the German Racing Championship (DRM) from 1978, and in 1982 a version of the car in distinctive orange Jägermeister livery came home in third at the Nürburgring and second in Salzburg, the fifth race of the season. Now, the machine is recreated by this 1/10 scale R/C model assembly kit. The wide and low form is accurately reproduced in polycarbonate, including the big overhanging front/rear fenders, and the model also features separate molded light cases and rear parts. Mesh wheels are 2-piece, with the rear pair wider than those at the front. Finally, the stylish marking scheme can be replicated using the included marking stickers.
|Adaptable TT-02 Chassis offers 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 offer 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.
