|REINERT's Rampaging Racer|
This is an exciting R/C model assembly kit recreating the Team REINERT Racing MAN TGS truck which starred on the 2016 European truck racing circuit. The realistic body is a 4-piece set made from lightweight and durable polycarbonate, with separately molded plastic side mirrors, coupler and rear bumper parts. Stickers are included in the kit to recreate the truck's numerous sponsor markings and logos, etc. The TT-01 Type-E chassis is a proven performer, and here is fitted with dedicated racing truck model wheels and tires.
The bathtub frame of the evolved shaft-driven 4WD TT-01 Type-E has its motor and battery close to the ground for lower center of gravity and optimum balance. Mounted on the bathtub frame is a fiberglass reinforced nylon upper deck and gear covers improving rigidity, as well as a 3-piece tie rod providing a smoother steering action. The low center of gravity, great balanced design, 4 wheel double wishbone suspension system, and front and rear differential gears all come together to produce excellent operating ability. 70mm-diameter radial tires are paired with metal plated wheels developed just for this model; the high sidewalls make for forgiving turns.
