Great Things Come in Small Packages
The Fiat Abarth 1000 TCR Berlina Corse became European Touring Car Championship class champion in 1968 and 1969. Based upon the compact 2-door Fiat 600, it was tuned by Abarth for races. The muscular form had front and rear over fenders, a large radiator cover integrated with the front bumper, and horizontally-opened engine hood. A 982cc inline-4 engine capable of over 110hp underpinned its powerful performance. This R/C model assembly kit depicts the small but mighty silhouette of the car elegantly using a polycarbonate body and plenty of separately molded plastic parts, the whole package being based upon the new MB-01 chassis.

The MB-01 Chassis
The compact, 2WD MB-01 chassis gives a choice of three types of wheelbase, and front- or rear- wheel drive system. This model employs a midship motor, rear-wheel drive setup. Without removing battery pack, motor and R/C equipment setups from the center frame, simply change attachment directions of final gears and steering linkage to switch between front- and rear-wheel drive; low or high motor position can be chosen for rear-wheel drive cars. The 4-wheel double wishbone suspension features symmetrical structure and friction dampers. Unitized sections such as motor mount, final gears and suspension facilitate ease of assembly and effective maintenance.
