The Mercedes-Benz G Class' heavy duty chassis and distinctive body design have long made it a favorite with consumers, and in 2018 it was endowed with new models including the G 500, powered by a 4-liter V8 twin turbo engine. This R/C model assembly kit recreates the G 500. Length: 455mm, width: 196mm, height: 207mm. The boxy form is recreated accurately in polycarbonate, with separate molded parts for front grille, side mirrors and spare tire cover. The CC-02 provides a great base for the model, at home on a range of off-road surfaces and even rocky terrain.
CC-02 Chassis - Off Road, Evolved
Designed for a wide range of off-road scenes including rocky terrain, the CC-02 chassis' ladder frame is inspired by full-size vehicles and is the base for its superior durability. A 4WD setup employs the motor longitudinally behind the front axle with separated gearbox and transfer case, and propeller shafts transmitting power to the differential gears front and rear. Four-link rigid suspension is employed front and rear, with CVA oil dampers for all-encompassing control, even on tricky rock sections. This model comes with matte plated seven-spoke wheels and grippy block pattern tires.
