In the Hunt for Victory
The Zakspeed Ford Capri Turbo Group 5 car featured a 1,427cc
four-cylinder DOHC engine matched with a stretched body that was the
result of extensive wind-tunnel testing and was far evolved from the
original 2-door Capri road version. It was a participant in the German
Racing Championship (DRM) from 1978, and in 1982 a version of the car
in distinctive orange Jägermeister livery came home in 3rd at
the Nürburgring and 2nd in Salzburg, the fifth race of the
season. Now, the machine is recreated by this 1/10 scale R/C model
assembly kit. The wide and low form is accurately reproduced in
polycarbonate, including the big overhanging front/rear fenders, and
the model also features separate molded light cases and rear parts.
Mesh wheels are 2-piece, with the rear pair wider than those at the
front. Finally, the stylish marking scheme can be replicated using the
included marking stickers.
Adaptable TT-02 Chassis offers 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 offer 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.
