Opel Manta RC Car
excuse me for swearing but this is just completely f**king awesome...
Quick trip down memory lane : I used to have a Tamiya Rough
Rider RC car back in 1980 and it's still in my loft minus a body.
It was the same as the Sand Scorcher which was the same RC car chassis
with the VW 'baja bug' body.
But to see a classy little Manta body on a brand new RC car chassis
really impressed me. To think that our classic car lives again in
polycarbonate form as a new RC car is just brilliant. Whoever decided
to produce this body is a genius.
My old Tamiya was a 30mph electric motor version, but this little
beauty is a Carsons CH4 chassis Nitro Petrol model, with 2-speed
transmission, fully independent suspension and four wheel drive
(wow, four wheel-drive Manta, can you imagine a 4x4 Manta?) This
should prove to be a right little goer.
Expect to pay around £30 for the bodyshell or around £200
for the RC Car itself. Ontop of that you'll need a transmitter,
servos, glow plugs, glow starter & charger and nitro fuel.
