Vaterra 2015 Ford Mustang coupe0 comments - Aug 22 2014 11:23 AM
The 1/10-scale Vaterra® 2015 Ford Mustang coupe is a one-of-a-kind RC recreation of this landmark automobile. It comes completely assembled and ready to run with the officially licensed body in place. Beneath the gorgeous exterior is the power and poise of a Vaterra V100-S chassis. Its potent Dynamite® power system and shaft-driven 4WD provide a perfect blend of speed, traction and control that make this car a blast to drive right out of the box.
The V100-S platform has been designed with flexibility in mind; accommodating variation in wheelbase and dimensions to ensure that our products are as faithful to the originals as possible. Multi-part body tooling produce undercuts and shapes that simple vacuum forming is incapable of achieving. Yes it's more time consuming and yes it's more expensive but to the enthusiast, the difference is startling and the end result justifies the decision.
Simple details such as brake discs, wing mirrors and bumpers complete the look but are so often overlooked. But not with Vaterra. Authentic colour ways and realistic wheels, subtle visual cues that stand out to the enthusiast; all have been carefully thought out, designed and produced with official licensed endorsement from the design owners.
It's a 1/10 Scale saloon platform that has been designed around a common chassis and driveline, making it possible to create many different cars without the need for expensive and extensive bespoke spares support. At the heart of the V100-S lies a four wheel driven shaft-drive transmission system, equipped with twin gear-type differentials housed within a sealed drivetrain and transmission tunnel with an inline-mounted 15T brushed motor. A proven concept that our Vaterra engineers have honed to provide a balanced, neutral handling and confidence-inspiring dynamic package that can be further augmented with a wide range of tuning and personalisation options.
IN THE BOX
Inside the box is a Spektrum DX2E steer wheel radio that is not only ergonomically designed to be comfortable to use but also gives excellent control and interferance free running. To power the radio is four AA batteries that are sure to keep you going for many battery packs to come.
