Burning for Victory
This is a plastic model assembly kit of a high-performance mini 4WD racer. The Mini 4WD REV Series showcases models that feature an aerodynamically efficient body and chassis combination. The Flame Astute artfully blends elements from the Tamiya R/C Astute model with the looks of a modern day U.S. racing machine, and the results are stunning! It has a slimline nose offset by a widened rear section, and its aerodynamic performance is boosted by the front wing, side pontoons, curved rear wing and induction pod air intakes. With the racy red body complemented by blue, white and silver markings as well as metallic logo stickers, plus classy low-profile tires, the Flame Astute is bound to be one hot customer at your local Mini 4WD track. Make sure it's YOUR Flame Astute that everyone is watching!

AR ChassisThe AR chassis is designed to offer its driver durability, customizability and ease of maintenance, all of which are vital ingredients for a successful Mini 4WD racer. Its aerodynamic form smoothly allows air to pass through the chassis interior as the machine runs, performing the vital function of cooling the batteries and motor and extending their effectiveness. The air intakes on the chassis and body are integrated for optimal performance. This high-speed racing chassis also features low-friction plastic bearings to ensure that any loss of power from the engine to the wheels is minimal in nature. The underpanel and diffuser can be removed from the model without taking off the body, while a low-friction rear skid bar is fitted to slash time loss experienced on tricky slope sections, and keep the racer on the track where it belongs. Features a 3.5:1 gear ratio.
