In real life, the Renault Cinq Turbo was a crazy machine... super short wheelbase and boasting huge HPs from a mid/rear mounted engine - recipe for a real kick in the pants. Given that Tamiya had not released any 'sedan/sports' type RC cars lately, the lightweight nylon uprights of the updated F1 'CS' were grafted onto a new FRP chassis with aluminium radio tray to create this pocket rocket racer. And yes, they borrowed the RM1's servosaver too.(Description originally entered by Pandabear)
