Don Almeido tells us he owns four RC Mazda 787B Group C chassis cars, but this tribute to the Le Mans winner with rare Tamiya factory hop-ups is his favorite. It even has original Tamiya factory electronics—receiver, ESC, and GT motor. It has the limited edition green diff and a carbon fiber Tamiya rear shaft, along with Lunsford titanium turnbuckles and an anodized aluminum shock. Don custom painted the wheels to correctly replicate the actual race car, and swapped on a Formula 1-style aluminum lower rear wing bracket from Japan to better replicate the look of the real car. The body paint is the proper Tamiya factory finish and it is pristine.
