From Tamiya:
The 4th generation Supra (JZA80) was announced in 1993 as Toyota’s flagship sports car. The top-grade RZ is equipped with a 3-liter inline 6-cylinder twin-turbo engine that produces 280 horsepower, a Getrag 6-speed transmission, 4-wheel double wishbone suspension, and front and rear ventilated disc brakes. It captivated car fans around the world with its massive form and high performance, and actively participated in motorsports, achieving good results. This is an electric radio control car assembly kit that reproduces the Supra, which is still popular worldwide and has even appeared in movies. The body is made of polycarbonate and has a firm curved surface. It was painted metallic blue, and the wheel arches were cut and holes were drilled for body mounts.

The chassis uses the BT-01, a multi-purpose 2WD model with a choice of rear-wheel drive or front-wheel drive, and two types of wheelbases in either case. You can enjoy light maneuverability and choose the specifications that match the drive system of the actual vehicle. The center frame equipped with the running battery, motor, and RC mechanism remains the same, and you can choose between front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive by replacing the final gear and steering linkage, and when rear-wheel drive, the front motor (FR) and rear motor ( MR) two types of motor mounting positions can be selected. You can enjoy the difference in maneuverability. In addition, the suspension has a symmetrical front and rear design, with four independent double wishbone wheels equipped with friction dampers. Another point is that each part, such as the “unit motor mount,” “unit final gear case,” and “suspension unit,” is made into units, making it easy to assemble and maintain. We recommend the MR rear-wheel drive Supra, but it would also be fun to choose the FR rear-wheel drive, which is closer to the drive system of the actual car.
