However, those without a race license can now experience the action with the 1/10 scale ATS-V.R body from PROTOform.
The shell is made from .030-inch Lexan and includes injection-molded wing struts so you can trim the wing in two different positions. You also get the full decal sheet, wing mounting hardware and paint-then-peel overspray film and the satisfaction you’re piloting a fully officially licensed product.
Sure, the 100 mm body (you’ll have to get the engine and all the other bits elsewhere) of an RC car doesn’t mean much to those who truly want to get behind the wheel of the real thing, but don’t scoff just yet. RC cars may seem like the playthings of children but it’s worth noting just how fast they can be.
Plus, the ATS-V.R-in-Lexan is fully approved to race in the USGT, GT10, and Spec Grand Touring RC race series so, technically, you can pilot your own ATS-V.R to victory on track– even without an FIA license.
Plus, at just $28.86 (plus the cost of the chassis), it’s vastly cheaper than the real carbon-clad racer, too.
