XB Honda City Turbo WR-02C Chassis R/C Car, 1:10 Scale by Tamiya

Consider this new Honda City R/C car from Tamiya to be a bit of a throwback. No, it’s not 100% true to scale, and in as much it’s a bit of a cartoon. Even still, it makes for a great little knock around R/C car in cartoonish hot hatch form.

A Funky Blast from the Past!
This factory finished R/C model is a comical recreation of a racing version of Honda’s 1983 release in Japan – the City Turbo. The tough resin body features crisp molding, and the kit includes a driver figure with helmet to add further mirth to proceedings – both body and driver are painted, and have colorful decorative stickers pre-applied. The WR-02C chassis runs on tires with left-right asymmetric tread patterns.

WR-02C Chassis – Wheelie Fun!
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 center-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 positioned along the centerline of the chassis, using a 2 tie-rod setup for straightforward handling.

2.4GHz Transmitter Included
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.
