Drive Like a Champion
One of four 2006-spec Mercedes C-Class cars racing in this year's DTM, the Team Vodafone AMG-Mercedes features a flashy red and black colour scheme. The driver is German Bernd Schneider, DTM champion in 2000, 2001 and 2003. Consistent driving ensured a string of podium finishes and Schneider was crowned as the DTM 2006 Champion even before the season was over. Tamiya now brings you this championship-winning machine as a high-performance glow engine R/C car. The actual car's sleek body, including the eye-catching sponsor logos, has been meticulously reproduced using tough lightweight polycarbonate and is mounted on the newly developed TNS-FD chassis. A wheel and trigger type transmitter is included, so just pop in some batteries and fill up the tank and you're ready to go!
4WD Chassis Powered by FS-12FD
The durable TNS-FD chassis features 2.5mm aluminium lower deck and resin upper deck for optimum structural rigidity. A high-performance 2.1cc FS-12FD engine powers the reliable shaft-driven 4WD system featuring differential-equipped front and rear gearboxes ensures stable high-speed driving. 4-wheel double wishbone suspension with oil dampers at all four corners provide sure-footed handling and a large diameter disc brake allows the car to stop just as quickly as it accelerates. With a full load of fuel in the choke pump-equipped 65cc tank, you can enjoy approximately 5 minutes of exciting tarmac action.
