Tamiya 47308-60A - 1/12 Volkswagen Golf Mk.1 Racing Group 2 (M-05) (w/o ESC)
Tamiya has released the classic Volkswagen Golf Mk.1, a well-known machine of European touring car racing (47308) in 1/12 M-05 chassis. The Kamei-sponsored car with its distinctive livery ran in the low-modification Group 2 class of its day. For now you can check out the official press release information below.
The Tamiya R/C model faithfully captures the fun and maneuverability of the real life subject as it comes on the proven M-05 M-chassis platform. The M-05 is a simple to build FWD (front wheel drive) machine, which allows for plenty of after-market parts to be outfitted as you grow with your skill.
This R/C model assembly kit depicts the striking Kamei-sponsored Group 2 VW Golf which made a splash in 1970s touring car racing. The polycarbonate body accurately captures the form of the racing Golf, with wide front fenders and a sporty front spoiler. Stickers are included to recreate sponsor logos, numbers, etc.
M-05: Low Center of Gravity, High Performance!
The front wheel drive M-05 chassis features a lightweight, narrow, durable, and easy-assembly semi-monocoque resin frame. Gearbox, motor, battery pack, receiver, servo and ESC are positioned for optimum weight distribution and a low center of gravity. Ground-hugging 4-wheel independent double wishbone suspension and the 3-piece steering linkage provide stable high-speed cornering. Racing slick tires feature tire inserts.
