A CLASSIC RETURNS!
1992 was another great year of racing in the German Touring Car Championship (DTM), with rival cars from major makers Mercedes-Benz, Audi and BMW taking one another on. This R/C model assembly kit depicts the Mercedes-Benz 190 E 2.5-16 EVO.II car fielded in 1992 by Team Zakspeed. It features an accurate polycarbonate body reproduction of the 190 E form with overfenders and front spoiler, plus separate polycarbonate wing parts. Metal-plated components recreate the famed Mercedes emblem and front grille, with separately molded plastic parts depicting side mirrors. Stickers are included to depict numerous logos (including main sponsor Diebels Alt), car numbers and more!
The bathtub frame of the evolved shaft-driven 4WD TT-01 Type-E has its motor and battery close to the ground for lower center of gravity and optimum balance. Mounted on the bathtub frame is a fiberglass reinforced nylon upper deck and gear covers improving rigidity, as well as a 3-piece tie rod providing smooth steering action. The low center of gravity, highly balanced design, 4 wheel double wishbone suspension system, and front and rear differential gears all come together to produce an excellent drive. Gold color 6-spoke wheels are paired with racing slick tires for the finishing touch, while a host of Hop-Up Option parts are available to soup up the TT-01 Type-E!
