|Further Description/Back Story||The JACCS Honda Accord was a limited edition. It was Tamiya's first FWD sedan chassis the FF-01. The body was painted all white and everything else was from the sheet. Warm water a little soap and a careful heat gun applied the livery. The kit measured 10x smaller than it's road going counterpart in track and wheelbase. It's a mid 90's kit kit chassis is stock but gearboxes have BB's. It runs 8 cells conditioned using a Super IQ'2 The Ni-Cd's still holds enough to power a tr-rotar 12T double in a short-stack 540 can.
I bought this in 1996-7 from a fellow racer at the track. He wanted the Civic body and suspension for another project and sold me the remaining new unbuilt chassis. I restored it and have only ran it a handful of times. This build would not have been possible without RC Car Action Magazine.
