Primal RC is new on the scene, and just made a big splash at the WRAM show with this wild release: the 1/5 scale Quicksilver gas dragster. This big beauty shows off a graphite chassis and loads of machined aluminum, and the rail is just over five feet long–it’s one serious blacktop-burning machine. Primal will offer the car as an RTR with 30.5cc gas engine and a target price of $1300, and hopes to have the Quicksilver in stores by June. We can’t think of an easier way to get into large-scale drag racing–Quicksilver spec class, anyone?
Full details and lots more pics below. Can’t wait to test this one…
