Meet the Champ
Rallying fans across the world enjoyed the exploits of the Celica GT-Four in 1990, as it won five times in global rally races on the way to a first Drivers' title for a Japanese car. This R/C model assembly kit recreates that car in 1/10 scale, with a polycarbonate body capturing the streamlined form, and stickers included to capture not just various sponsor logos but even the red sections of the eye-catching livery.

TT-02: Adaptable, balanced shaft driven 4WD
The shaft-driven 4WD TT-02 chassis employs a longitudinal layout with the battery on the left and the motor on the right, to give excellent stability. In addition, it features identical left and right suspension arms and uprights for ease of assembly, plus easy-to-maintain gearboxes. It is a highly adaptable chassis, as it offers 2 different wheelbases, 2 ground clearance settings and 2 tread set-ups in addition to a range of 10 possible gear ratios. It is not short on looks either, with brake disc-shaped wheel hubs and stylish front bumper supports. White dish wheels use racing radial tires.
