R/C EP Touring Car CITROEN DS3 WRC 2011 No.1 Sebastien Loeb 30534SL
The release of this special MINI-Z AWD chassis model incorporates the “Rear Double Wishbone (DWS)”as standard. In addition to the advanced double wishbone rear suspension, the chassis is mounted with a 2.4GHz one-piece RA-23T receiver-amp unit equipped with Chase Mode to charge up the racing excitement. The combination of precision control and easy operability from the 2.4GHz system allows you to enjoy high performance almost as soon as you take it out of the box. The precision structure of this micro-size AWD machine is comparable in its sophistication to 1/10 EP touring cars. The downstop mechanism, ball-connected system on the suspension shafts, and the friction damper with damping force adjusted with grease, provide a wide range of setting options. Precision geometry and link configuration realize effective mechanical grip for superior control. Compatibility with LL-size wheelbase body styles expands the driving experience even further. Optional gyro can be installed in the upper cover so throttle and steering control is automatically corrected to smooth the rough edges of driving, making it even easier for beginners to enjoy the fun of driving and drifting.
What is Chase Mode (Tiki Tiki)?
Chase mode functions to limit power output to 70% of full throttle. When the moment comes to attack, a push of the 3rd channel button on the transmitter increases power output to 100% for 3-second burst of speed. This enables greater driving control and also adds the excitement of overtaking duels so drivers can enjoy nose to tail racing battles. Also, the number of power boosts can be set to apply a handicapping system to level the playing field for drivers of different experience levels. At the time of shipment, the overtake function is set to a maximum of 5 times per race.
