This radio control car kit recreates the VW Scirocco GT. Tamiya has faithfully recreated the Scirocco for radio control enthusiasts with a polycarbonate body that comes pre-painted in black with the windows tinted in Tamiya PS-31 Smoke. The aggressive looking body sits on top the easy to build and drive TT-01E chassis.
The bathtub frame of the evolved shaft-driven 4WD TT-01 Type-E has its motor and battery close to the ground for lower center of gravity and optimum balance. Mounted on the bathtub frame is a fiberglass reinforced nylon upper deck and gear covers improving rigidity, as well as a 3-piece tie rod providing a smoother steering action. The low center of gravity, great balanced design, 4-wheel double wishbone suspension system, and front and rear differential gears all come together to produce excellent operating ability. 70mm-diameter radial tires are paired with wheels developed just for this model; the high sidewalls make for forgiving turns.
