The TG10-Mk.2FZ glow-engine car chassis gives great performance and thrilling sounds.

Now, it is paired with a newly-designed body that really looks the part!

The stylish shell is the brainchild of Japanese designer Kota Nezu of znug design, who has contributed to a number of popular Tamiya products.

The wide and lowdown form of the Raikiri GT is bound to turn heads at the local racetrack, as is the stylish wing at the rear.

The model is true to its name, which refers to a mythical Japanese sword - with flowing lines and great aerodynamics, this is the perfect machine for you to use to cut through the field and take the win!

The shaft-driven 4WD TG10-Mk.2 Chassis is fitted with the .12 (2.1cc) Tamiya FS-12FZ engine, which has a capacity of 2.1cc and features tapered sliding carburetor, plus an efficient heat sink for heat dissipation.

It offers an excellent combination of linear torque and high output, while being easy to setup and maintain. It features a 2-speed transmission.

The chassis' 3mm-thick lower and upper decks are made from duralumin and resin respectively, while the resin R/C mechanism deck is compatible with the Tamiya LF Battery LF1100-6.6V Racing Pack (M-Size).

4-wheel double wishbone suspension features oil dampers with aluminum cylinders and a special fluorine-coated interior for impressively smooth movement, and geometry has been optimized for use with rubber tires. Likewise, full ball bearings offer smooth drivetrain movement.

The 75cc fuel tank includes a special filter and offers up to 8 minutes of running time.
