Do It (all) Yourself|
The Nissan Skyline GT-R was near-peerless in 1990s touring car races in Japan, run by many teams. No less than 7 were entered into the final Group A season in 1993, one of which was the HKS car - the team took care of everything from tuning to maintenance of the car. The car took victory in the third race of the season at SUGO in Miyagi, plus two poles and further 2nd and 3rd place podium finishes. This model depicts that car, with the body molded in lightweight and durable polycarbonate, plus separate parts for side mirrors and the rear spoiler. Stickers are included in the kit to recreate the color marking scheme, which was based upon the HKS oil can design.
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. 2-piece wheels have white 5-spoke sections and silver color rims; they 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!
