 Tamiya also made a 1/10 scale quattro rally Radio control model, It has 
AWD and an adjustable suspension with oil filled dampners etc.  Very 
fast. For those unfamiliar with Tamiyas r/c cars, I assure you these are 
some serious toys!   The bad news is this car has been long-since 
discontinued (although I found a sticker set in a hobby shop) and I have 
yet to find one. Expect to pay approx $250-300 if I find a new one, 
somewhat less used. Maybe someday....

P.S. I too have built the 1/24 scale TQCs. good detail, but check out 
those extra rear suspension links.? My 1/1 scale car doesn't seem to have 
them, hmmm.

What can I say, I'm hooked on quattros,
