The Comeback of a Classic!
This R/C model assembly kit depicts the striking Kamei-sponsored Group 2 VW Golf which made a splash in 1970s touring car racing. The polycarbonate body accurately captures the form of the racing Golf, with wide front fenders and a sporty front spoiler. Stickers are included to recreate sponsor logos, numbers, etc.
M-05: Low Center of Gravity, High Performance!
The front wheel drive M-05 chassis features a lightweight, narrow, durable, and easy-assembly semi-monocoque resin frame. Gearbox, motor, battery pack, receiver, servo and ESC are positioned for optimum weight distribution and a low center of gravity. Ground-hugging 4-wheel independent double wishbone suspension and the 3-piece steering linkage provide stable high-speed cornering. Racing slick tires feature tire inserts.
