Last year the new STI absolutely smashed the SP3T class at the Nürburgring 24 Hour Race, and this sweet 1/10 scale replica is Tamiya’s homage to the victory.

Built on an updated version of their famous TT-02 ‘on-road’ platform, it’s the perfect entry-level kit for anyone getting into building their own custom RC racers, rather than those looking to buying them ready-done off-the-shelf.


What’s pretty awesome here too, is that you can modify yours with loads of trick options, including more powerful motors, beefed up suspension and all sorts of handling and alignment trickery.

In fact it’s just like bolting together a proper track weapon, without the scraped knuckles, huge workshop, divorce or knackered credit card. You just can’t argue with that.

Priced £125 (base kit)
