Default WRC Racing STX EP touring car

It's my pleasure to introduce the new TC, The STX!
Made in Italy
WRC Racing, best known for their 1/10th F1 chassis, the F-One 200, have released the first pictures of their new 190mm EP Touring car. Another brand to enter the market this year, the STX has some unique features the most noticeable being the ‘upper’ deck which utilizes two plates of carbon running perpendicular to the chassis plate to create stiffness. Along the length of the braces are struts which can be removed to increase flex. The steering servo is centrally mounted as is the norm using a very low and lightweight solution, while the steering/Ackerman plate moves along pins instead of pivoting on a central point. We can expect complete details when the car is released at the beginning of December.
first picture



stay tuned for more pics!
For any Support or info please contact Mikimodel.net Center European Distribution for WRC Racing Cars at info@mikimodel.net

Thanks RedRC

Reminds me of my first TC, a Kawada sv 10 alcyon.

Might be hard to reset chassis tweak. Looks interesting though. Any support in the US ?

Nice to see something that isn't an Xray/Tamiya clone for once!

That's really good news ...it would be nice to see a competitive car that comes out of Italy with the bragging rites of saying its all made in Italy too ...this looks interesting.....and you say there's no blades what type of out drive system is it ....is it similar to the kyosho tf6?
