This model recreates the Subaru WRX STI car which took an impressive victory in the SP3T class of the Nurburgring 24 Hours race event at the legendary German circuit in May 2016. The car is powered by the same engine as in its production model – the EJ20 2-liter horizontally-opposed turbo engine.
Tamiya has faithfully reproduced this sleek racing machine in 1/10 scale on the TT-02 entry-level on-road chassis. The TT-02 chassis incorporates many features to make it easy 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 current 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 Hop-Up Options available to increase the cars speed and performance.
