Drive “Fast And Furious” With Vaterra’s New 2012 Nissan GT-R GT3

Drive “Fast And Furious” With Vaterra’s New 2012 Nissan GT-R GT3

Vaterra adds another great looking scale vehicle to it growing product line. This GT3 is a replica of the real thing and it even mimics the look of disc brakes. Plus it is truly RTR since it includes a Spektrum DX2E 2.4GHz radio, AA’s for the radio, a Dynamite 6 cell 7.2v 1800mAh NiMH Battery, and a Dynamite 2A NiMH AC peak charger. So charge the included batteries and you are ready to hit the streets in style! Here is the press release from Vaterra:

The 545 hp, twin-turbocharged Nissan GT-R has quickly established itself as one of the most incredible street machines on the planet. The GT-R Nismo GT3 shares the same engine with its street legal sibling, but has been built exclusively for FIA GT3 competition by the Nismo motorsport arm of Nissan. In place of creature comforts like adjustable leather seats and air conditioning are lightweight carbon fiber door panels, a roll cage and racing harness. Aerodynamic enhancements like a front splitter, flat floor and adjustable rear wing add extra downforce at high speeds. It all adds up to a world-class racing machine that can go toe-to-toe with Europe’s best and win.

This outstanding, ready-to-run replica of the 2012 Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 comes just as you see here with an officially licensed GT3 body in place. Its versatile Vaterra V100-C chassis has a built-in front splitter and rear diffuser, just like those on full-scale racing machines. Handling is neutral out of the box, but the chassis offers all kinds of tuning options that let you tailor the handling to your driving style.
