1/10 R/C 2003 FORD FOCUS RS CUSTOM (TT-02)

Length: 427 mm. Image shows painted and assembled kit.

In Sharp Focus
This R/C car assembly kit depicts the high-performance rally-oriented RS version of the 1998 debut Ford Focus compact car with various customizations. Its powerful body is recreated in polycarbonate, and the model is based upon the efficient shaft-driven 4WD TT-02 chassis.

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. Silver color fin-spoke wheels use semi-pneumatic racing radial tires.
