  • Packaging
  • ★This kit features a body with futuristic racecar-inspired design, and comes with metallic stickers for decoration.
  • ★Like its name suggests, the body incorporates a sharp, thrusting design scheme, accented by the compact rear wing.
  • ★Viewed from the side, the model's low profile really comes to the fore; its low center of gravity will help hug the track.
  • ★Lightweight and compact, the body is crafted in ABS plastic and weighs in at a featherweight nine grams, promising great speed.
  • ★As seen here, the design is composed of three sections: body, wing and canopy, and is sure to catch the eye of those watching your race.
  • ★The cockpit shape is reminiscent of those seen on fighter aircraft. Carbon fiber effect and pcd_designworks stickers add to the mood.
  • ★The canopy features detailed molding on the inside of the part. This image shows painted (TS-71 Smoke) and unpainted examples.
  • ★Leaving the canopy part off lets you install figures. Animal figures in particular make a great combination with its coloring.
  • ★The VZ chassis is molded in white, with A Parts (bumpers, gear cover and more) in yellow. The model features a 3.5:1 gear ratio.
  • ★Six spoke-wheels feature a spiral design, and are paired with super hard small-diameter low-profile tires for great performance.
