Default Scoop Hirosaka NRX-12

Saw this on RCshop-online: NRX-12 Can't read it but assume it is 1/12. Looks good, bling bling with the gold colored parts. maybe the next step is a 1/10 TC (driven by his son Masami? )

Ahh another 12th scale TC. I wonder if this class will take off..Been toying with the idea of getting one. Locally the indoor tracks arent quite big enough for 1/10th TC...however not everyone is in love with 12th scale pan. This might be a nice compromise.

could be right .....I know in Japan they're thinking about this 12th 5 cells TC it the way to go ,so they're easy on the brushes motor or keeping the cost down

Disgustingly ugly car. A 1/10th version might as well be a Yoke SD...

Nice car, it looks like Masaaki was inspired by Yokomo, HPI and Rayspeed.
