High Speed Engine R/C Made Easy!
The high pitched screaming engine, the sweet smell of fuel and exhaust fumes, the awesome speed off the start line, nothing quite compares to the buzz of engine R/C. Whether you're already hooked and looking for a high performance hassle free new ride, or you are new to engine R/C, the Nitro Blaster is sure to satisfy. Set includes factory built chassis fully equipped with a powerful 2.5cc engine, fully finished body with all stickers pre-applied, and trigger type transmitter. Capable of lightning speeds on both dirt and on-road tracks, Nitro Blaster will leave the competition behind no matter the terrain.
New Technology, Awesome Performance!
Nitro Blaster is powered by Tamiya's NDF-01 chassis, featuring aluminium die-cast engine mount built-into highly durable resin lower deck for maximum heat dissipation and low centre of gravity, and engine and fuel tank loaded to the centre of chassis for ideal weight distribution. The massive power from the 2.5cc engine is converted to real running performance via centre bulkhead, fully sealed and bearing loaded differential gear box, and universal joints. With the NDF-01, you not only get a powerful glow engine, but a highly efficient and extremely reliable racing machine.
Frontal Impact Control System (FICS)
4-wheel independent double wishbone suspension features extra long suspension arms extending from centre of chassis. Front suspension arms are protected by Frontal Impact Control System (FICS), which absorbs impact during a front-on collision by an expandable suspension mount. Camber angle and toe is also adjustable for both front and rear wheels.
Large-sized Ball Bearings
Extra large ball bearings, including 2112 bearings, are used throughout the drive train for long lasting, efficient performance. Extremely smooth chassis bottom for best skid performance has been obtained via sinking all screw heads and eliminating any height difference between lower deck and aluminium die-cast engine mount.
Trigger Type Transmitter for Precise Control
Transmitter has been specially designed by renowned German industrial designer, H. A. Muth, designer of the Suzuki GSX1000S Katana motorcycle. The unique, ergonomic design, features steering wheel and trigger positioned for optimum performance with minimal distractions. All parts that require a soft touch for precision manoeuvring such as steering wheel, trigger and grip have been produced from high quality soft resin. Control switches and trims are located on the front for a user friendly design.
