Grand Prix 3D 1/10th scale 1960s Formula 1

Grand Prix 3D are offering a fusion of historic Grand Prix, RC racing and scale modelling, all in one. This electric 1/10th scale RC car has been developed true to the iconic Grand Prix cars of the 1960’s era with scale details throughout, including engine, exhausts, gearbox, suspension, steering, driver figure and more. In what is a very clever design that manages to seamlessly integrate the electronics, the motor and drive train are mounted inside a scale looking engine and gearbox with the steering servo, ESC and receiver in the footwell of the car. Using a majority of 3D printed parts, printed with carbon fibre and glass fibre reinforced nylon, it does also feature a rear gear differential, period authentic CVDs, full ball bearings and scale body shell. Currently set for a release in February next year, they are taking pre orders on their website.
