The Chevrolet Camaro from Vaterra was designed for solid handling around corners, thanks its low centre of gravity, double wishbone suspension. The chassis can be fine tuned, allowing you to modify the car to your drifting specifications.  Just like the Mustang, the Camaro comes with shaft-driven 4WD which gives you great drift control over loose surfaces. Complete with a bold trim scheme, the Camaro RC car is true performer.

Number 3 - Vaterra 2002 Nissan Silvia

This RC car version was created by Vaterra with the same focus on sport performance. The Silvia comes with shaft-driven 4WD to give you great handling around the bends. This is complemented by a Dynamite 15-turn brushed motor and 1800mAh NiMH battery to give you the power you need for stellar performance on the track. This Vaterra car has an officially-licensed Nissan body, which is bound to turn heads as you turn the corners!
