Default Roche Rapide P12 1/12 Competition Car Kit

The new Roche Rapide P12 1/12th kit is nearly ready through the production line! You've seen the pictures on RedRC and soon you'll be able to have it on the race track!

The kit combines a proven link design with the Xenon VSS front end, and a light weight pod that should result in an ideal balance.

http://www.rochercusa.com/p/rapide-p12.html

Please post any questions you have about the new car here...

I was hoping there was going to be a US distributor for this car. Any idea when it will be available and do you want to send me one to try for the MHIC lol.

hi ryan- best answer i have is 'soon'. once there is a tracking # then there will be more info. was hoping to be able to show and/or run the car at carpet nats next weekend but that unfortunately isn't going to happen.

i suspect the car will be at mile high.... just don't know who will be driving it yet.

I really like what I've seen so far. Is there an estimated retail price for the car yet?

Looks solid to me. I'm a little confused whether or not it will be available in the US? According to the link below it will be $230, quite a bargain compared to Xray, Serpent, Yokomo.

the car will be available in the usa! store for rochercusa dot com coming soon!

price on large items will identically match rocherc.com. smaller cost parts will be rounded up/down to the nearest 1/2 dollar.
