58619 1/10 R/C Petronas TOM’S RC F (TT-02)

Availability: August

MSRP: $173.00

The Super GT series is a grand touring car racing series that began in 1993. The series is based in Japan and it is recognized by the FIA. The Petronas sponsored TOM’S (Toyota’s tuning house) RC F is a white and green-liveried car entered in the GT500 class of the 2015 Super GT racing series. Harnessing the power from the 550hp-plus 2-liter inline-4 turbocharged engine, drivers Daisuke Ito and James Rossiter took 3rd place in Round 2 at the Fuji round of the series.

Tamiya has faithfully reproduced this sleek racing machine in 1/10 scale on the TT-02 entry level touring car chassis. The TT-02 chassis platform is the successor to the TT-01 as it incorporates many new features to make it even easier for the new R/C kit builder to assemble and learn from. The TT-02 chassis performs well as cornering and overall speed has been enhanced to take advantage of new electronics available on the market. In addition to the TT-02 being an ideal platform to start from, R/C hobbyists can expand its potential by adding many of the Ho-Up-Options available to increase the cars speed and performance.

Specifications

  • 1/10 scale R/C model assembly kit. Wheelbase: 257mm.
  • The body is made of durable polycarbonate. It accurately captures the aggressive form of the RC F.
