This R/C model assembly kit recreates the racy Martini sponsored Alfa Romeo 155 V6 TI, which featured a purpose-developed 450hp-plus 2.5-liter V6 engine mounted in the front, and paired with a 6-speed semi-automatic transmission. A hi-tech flavor was added by electronically controlled front, central and rear diffs, traction control and ABS. It remained in contention for the prestigious 1996 International Touring Car title until the final race. The model artfully captures the form of the car, with large front bumper spoiler and bulging front/rear fenders. Stickers are included in the kit to recreate the unmistakable livery of the car.
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. Fin-type wheels are paired with racing slick tires.
