Tamiya 84264 1/10 Nissan R91CP (’92 Daytona 24 Hours Winner)
The Nissan R91CP race car featured a sleek, aerodynamic form and was powered by a 3496cc twin-turbocharged V8 engine which produced an awesome 680hp. Driven by Japanese drivers Masahiro Hasemi, Kazuyoshi Hoshino, and Toshio Suzuki, it went on to win the 1992 24 Hours of Daytona race and in so doing also set a new race distance record of 4364.71km. Tamiya originally released a 1/10 scale R/C assembly kit of this famous machine in 1992 and it is making a comeback after two decades due to popular demand. The re-release version features the same chassis components as the 1992 original. The body is reproduced with durable polycarbonate while the side mirrors, windshield wiper, and induction pod are molded with separate parts. A driver figure is also included to enhance the model’s presence.
The ABS bathtub chassis incorporates resin space frames and a front FRP lower deck to give the chassis superb strength. Suspension features a front independent kingpin/coil spring and a rear 3-point setup with 1.5mm thick T-bar and CVA oil damper. Combined with high-grip sponge tires, it provides superb road-holding capability. In addition, ground clearance adjustment is possible for both the front and rear. A Direct-Drive 2WD system offers sharp throttle response and features a ball differential.
