Rc Honda City Turbo

  1. Description

    This RC model is an updated release of a Tamiya classic, which was released as "Willy"s Wheeler" back in 1983. It has returned upon a newly-overhauled variant of the WR-02 chassis. It is fitted with a Honda City Turbo body, which also includes a comical driver figure.

    The WR-02 chassis features a 2WD drive-train with fully independent double wishbone suspension.
    The 185mm wheelbase WR-02C chassis utilizes a sturdy monocoque frame which encompasses and protects the gearbox, enhanced by side members. The gear differential unit housed inside the sealed gearbox receives its power from the centerline-mounted motor, and passes it on to the rear wheels. A longitudinal position for the battery pack contributes to the model's optimal weight distribution to ensure that when the City Turbo accelerates in a hurry, it performs a dynamic and thrilling wheelie, cushioned by the wheelie roller bar to ensure that the car doesn't topple over. The steering servo is also positioned along the centerline of the chassis, using a 2 tie-rod setup for straightforward handling. The model also features 4-wheel independent double wishbone suspension for a smooth ride. For ease of assembly, the gearbox and motor come pre-assembled.
