The Ford Zakspeed Turbo Capri Group 5 car featured a 1,427cc four-cylinder DOHC engine matched with a stretched body that was the result of extensive wind-tunnel testing and was far evolved from the original 2-door Capri road version. In the 1981 running of the German Racing Championship (DRM), three years after its initial entry, the car was sponsored by the German auto parts maker Würth and left the rest of the field in its wake as it surged to the Championship. Now, the legendary machine is recreated by this 1/10 scale R/C model assembly kit. The wide and low form is accurately reproduced in polycarbonate, including the big overhanging front/rear fenders, and the model also features light cases and the rear wing as separate parts. Mesh wheels are 2-piece, with the rear pair wider than those at the front. Finally, the stylish marking scheme can be replicated using the included marking stickers.
Adaptable TT-02 Chassis offers balanced shaft driven 4WD
The shaft driven 4WD TT-02 chassis employs a longitudinal layout with the battery on the left and the motor on the right, to offer excellent stability. In addition, it features identical left and right suspension arms and uprights for ease of assembly, plus easy-to-maintain gearboxes. It is a highly adaptable chassis, as it offers 2 different wheelbases, 2 ground clearance settings and 2 tread set-ups in addition to a range of 10 possible gear ratios. It is not short on looks either, with brake disc-shaped wheel hubs and stylish front bumper supports.
