Ive always loved the shape of the escort MK1. When I was a kid I had a scalextric with a black MK1 with yellow stripes and it was my favourite! Since getting into RC`s Ive wished I could own a 10th scale one. I came accross a company called Retro Racing and found just what I was looking for so I went for it and this is the result. Really hope you guys like it! Chasis is a ballraced TL01 with a brushless 6800kv system and gyro for high speed stability.

I like it a lot. I can remember as a kid when my neighbour drove a standard version - it always had problems with the carburator and the distributor. And it rusted like hell....

Nice paint scheme....

Absolutely a stunning car, to me it has some great wheel arches, they give the car the muscle effect. I really like it a lot. Is this a 257mm wheelbase body set?
