A Funky Blast from the Past!
This R/C model assembly kit is a comical recreation of a racing version of Honda's 1983 release in Japan - the City Turbo. The tough resin body features crisp molding, and the kit includes a driver figure with helmet to add further mirth to proceedings. Stickers are provided to decorate the body of the car and the driver's helmet. The WR-02C chassis is a new one for this model, and it runs on tyres with left-right asymmetric tread patterns.
WR-02C Chassis - Wheelie Fun!
The 185mm wheelbase WR-02C chassis utilizes a sturdy monocoque frame which encompasses and protects the gearbox, enhanced by side members. The gear differential unit housed inside the sealed gearbox receives its power from the centerline-mounted motor, and passes it on to the rear wheels. A longitudinal position for the battery pack contributes to the model's optimal weight distribution to ensure that when the City Turbo accelerates in a hurry, it performs a dynamic and thrilling wheelie, cushioned by the wheelie roller bar to ensure that the car doesn't topple over. The steering servo is also positioned along the centerline of the chassis, using a 2 tie-rod setup for straightforward handling. The model also features 4-wheel independent double wishbone suspension for a smooth ride. For ease of assembly, the gearbox and motor come pre-assembled.
