Electric R/C Car Series No.719


Length: 414mm. Image shows painted and assembled kit.

This R/C model assembly kit is inspired by single-seater racing buggies popular in America. The slim chassis utilizes a lengthwise battery pack and rear-mounted, transverse motor, and ensures optimum weight balance and precise rigidity. The 4-wheel independent suspension uses front double wishbone and rear trailing arm setups to allow dynamic off-road performance. It employs safety nets, a roll cage equipped with light pods, six-piece body cowling featuring a long nose, and aluminum dampers.

The BB-01 Chassis
The BB-01 is a rear-wheel drive buggy chassis which features a hybrid lower deck-roll cage and suspension structure for a super-realistic look. Lengthwise battery pack and rear-mounted motor give the rear wheels plenty of traction, while the sealed gearbox has a built-in ball differential. The suspension utilizes an A-shaped arm front double wishbone setup featuring a skid angle of 25 degrees, and rear trailing arms for alignment adjustment, plus high-spec, high-quality aluminum aeration oil dampers for all four wheels. Tires are front rib pattern tread for directional stability and rear square spike for high grip, and are paired with front and rear metal-plated, hex-hub wheels. Access the motor easily under the liftable rear roll cage section.
