Toy Fair 2010 – Hobbytech
Having been sent CAD images prior to the toy fair, Hobbytech are displaying their new Spirit STR8 1/8th scale buggy. Featuring high quality and heavily machined aluminium throughout as standard, the car that is on display is the first sample of this car and will feature anodised aluminium throughout when it goes on sale in mid June. Completely new from its predecessor, all that machining has brought the car in at a mere 3.2kg. Featuring a narrow 3mm thick lightweight chassis plate design, the engine features a 7 degree angle over the centre line, but this can be changed to the conventional straight up design by using the additionally supplied 0 degree engine mount.
