1/10 R/C Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTA CLUB RACER (MB-01 CHASSIS)

Length: 385mm. Image shows painted and assembled kit.

Go Sporty!
The Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTA was developed as the lightweight, tuned race version of the 2-door coupe Giulia Sprint GT and released in 1965. 500 units were produced and in the late 1960s the works car became class champion several times in the European Touring Car Championship; also run by other racing teams, it caught many an eye at the racetrack. This assembly kit recreates that classic car as a radio control model, with a polycarbonate body plus stickers to create a design inspired by the numerous club racers driven run by amateur drivers.

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.
