Default ERFOLG4 - Have you seen this chassis before?

For its age, this chassis has a lot of unique features that can been seen on today's current touring car platforms.

That is a very cool chassis. Was it homebuilt? If so, it's a work of art.

The Walfisch Erfolg 4 was produced in the mid 90s by a Japanese enthusiast in his garage. Obviously this would limit the production numbers, and I know there was two samples sent to the UK and Radio Race Car did review it, but none were ever sold here.

I should dig mine out of storage.... Mines a UK car mentioned by Terry above, it has the optional carbon fibre chassis but the one on Yahoo Auctions JP has alloy hubs which I didn't know existed. VERY limited edition, I've heard as little as 10 worldwide were made.

Mine is the second one Terry mentioned. I bought it many years ago in the classifieds of an r/c car mag and the box had the RRC sticker on.




...I could be tempted to sell it
