Tamiya 58578 1/10RC Ford Zakspeed Turbo Capri Gr.5 Wurth (TT-02 Chassis)w/ Torque Tuned Motor
Meister of 1981!
The Ford Zakspeed Turbo Capri 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. In the 1981 running of the German Racing Championship (DRM), three years after its initial entry, the car was sponsored by the German auto parts maker Wurth and left the rest of the field in its wake as it surged to the Championship. Now, the legendary 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 light cases and the rear wing as separate 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.
Tamiya has faithfully reproduced this sleek racing machine in 1/10 scale on the TT-02 entry level touring car chassis. The TT-02 chassis platform is the successor to the TT-01 as it incorporates many new features to make it even easier for the new R/C kit builder to assemble and learn from. The TT-02 chassis performs well as cornering and overall speed has been enhanced to take advantage of new electronics available on the market. In addition to the TT-02 being an ideal platform to start from, R/C hobbyists can expand its potential by adding many of the Ho-Up-Options available to increase the cars speed and performance.
