1/10 R/C 1998 Honda NSX RACING (TT-02)

The NSX - a midship engine sports car released in 1990 – achieved success in races all over the world and also took part in Japanese GT car races from 1996. The 1998 version employed a 3.5-liter V6 engine, and featured improved aerodynamics, low center of gravity, improved brake system and easier maintenance. Four cars were raced that year and achieved five victories. This assembly kit creates an R/C model of that car, with an aerodynamically efficient polycarbonate body and stickers to decorate it, and is based upon the versatile and popular 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. Dark gun metal color 6-spoke wheels use semi-pneumatic slick tires.
