They used to live in the shadows, meeting on deserted streets to race for pink slips or simply pride. That was until a series of Hollywood blockbusters introduced millions to their world of modified mayhem. They’re called tuners. Part grease monkey, part computer hacker, these individuals excel at taking relatively mild mannered import cars and transforming them into nitrous-breathing, turbo-boosted street brawlers.
In the tuner world, few cars are as sought after as the Nissan® Silvia®. Its stealthy lines and stock 240+ hp engine give a hardcore tuner plenty to work with. This outstanding, ready-to-run replica of the Silvia (S15) is a great way to experience the excitement of the street racing scene without risking a pink slip or your license.
Versatile V100-C Chassis
The V100-C chassis gives you a balanced, neutral handling car. Its built-in front splitter and rear diff¬user match the look of those used on many full-scale tuner and time attack cars. Its universal body mounts are compatible with most other 1/10-scale bodies.
Officially Licensed Nissan Silvia (S15) Body
This fantastic looking body comes mounted on the chassis and features all kinds of details like side view mirrors and headlight buckets. An optional racing wing and front dive planes are included.
The shaft-driven 4WD delivers excellent traction on paved surfaces and superb drift control when sliding through corners at full throttle. The differentials are sealed against the elements and can be tuned for a variety of running conditions.
Low-Profile Tires on Large Diameter Wheels
The low-profile tires and 54mm wheels are complemented by brake and caliper details on the hub. The rear tires have a little more meat than the fronts for better grip and a little more attitude.
The car is equipped with a waterproof receiver, speed control and steering servo for driving in the real world, where roads get wet and the weather is often less than perfect.
