This is Tamiya 1/10 XB TT01E 4WD Ford Zakspeed Capri Gr.5 Jagermeister RTR EP w/ 2.4GHz Radio. The Zakspeed Ford Capri Turbo 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. It was a participant in the German Racing Championship (DRM) from 1978, and in 1982 a version of the car in distinctive orange Jägermeister livery came home in 3rd at the Nürburgring and 2nd in Salzburg, the fifth race of the season. Now, the machine is recreated by this 1/10 scale factory finished R/C model. The wide and low form is accurately reproduced in polycarbonate, including the big overhanging front/rear fenders, and the body is pre-painted in distinctive orange with sponsor logos and other markings applied. Gold-colored mesh wheels are 2-piece, with the rear pair wider than those at the front.
The bathtub frame of the shaft-driven 4WD TT-01 Type-E features the motor and battery mounted close to the ground for lower center of gravity and optimum balance. A fiberglass-reinforced nylon upper deck and gear covers improve rigidity, while a 3-piece tie rod provides smooth steering action. The low center of gravity, balanced design, 4-wheel double wishbone suspension system, and front and rear differential gears all come together to result in superb driving characteristics. The chassis comes equipped with an electronic speed controller (ESC) for smooth throttle control.
In addition to the painted body, this item also includes a wheel-type transmitter, battery pack and charger to allow instant enjoyment of driving. (*Battery pack and charger are included for Japan market only.) The 2.4GHz transmitter eliminates the need for frequency crystals, and is factory-paired with the receiver in the model to ensure that the receiver communicates with that transmitter only. Transmitter features detachable grip covers to match your hand size as well as a throttle trigger cover to increase the size of the throttle trigger for easier operation.
