|A Fine Vintage
The cars in the 1995 German DTM touring car series were finely honed beasts, battling it out over twenty-four races in six countries. Opel, Mercedes-Benz and Audi cars took part; six Opels from two teams took to the track, including this Calibra V6 clad in a striking black livery bearing the name of title sponsor Cliff, and piloted by JJ Lehto. This R/C model assembly kit depicts the car in style, with the two-door coupe body molded in lightweight polycarbonate and stickers included to recreate markings.

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 three-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. Silver dish 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!
