Tamiya has introduced a new 1/10-scale, on-road R/C car kit into their lineup; the Volkswagen Scirocco GT. Riding atop their TT-02 chassis, this sleek and stylish compact is a nice, modern-bodied option for radio-controlled car enthusiasts.
Under the body, the TT-02 chassis has been a tried-and-true option for Tamiya, and seeing them extend the use of this platform should come as no surprise. With shaft-driven four-wheel drive, this model benefits from solid power and traction. Whether you’re just driving around or want to get competitive, this chassis should let do both with ease.
The body design of this model captures the 1:1 Volkswagen Scircco’s essense to a T. Grille, headlight, tailight, and other body details are molded into this clear polycarbonate body and are ready for whatever color of paint you choose.
To complete this kit, you’ll need to supply a radio system (transmitter and receiver), steering servo, battery, charger, polycarbonate paint, and assembly tools.
