The Beetle RC car

The Volkswagen Beetle needs little introduction to most people around the world. A record 21 million Beetles were produced over a production period spanning 60-plus years, and the distinctive rounded form of the car is a familiar sight. It was the brainchild of the famed German designer Ferdinand Porsche, and the iconic car saw military service during the Second World War. The R/C model of this car was released in 1996 on the M-04 chassis. The 2013 model now sits on the modern and highly popular rear wheel drive M-06 chassis platform.

Designed to win: The M06

The M-06 chassis features a Rear-Mounted Motor, Rear-Drive setup and features a longitudinally-mounted battery pack, with R/C units positioned on either side for optimum balance and low center of gravity. 4-wheel double wishbone suspension is equipped with 60D radial tires at the front and 60D super grip tires at the rear. In addition, a 3-piece steering linkage offers nimble handling response.
