Re: UrQ RC car wanted

... no, it turns out that Radio Shaft actually had a proportional RC 
2WD model of the Audi quattro turbo coupe.  I got mine as a gift.  It
is cool, but nowhere near as quick as my RC-10!

I am intrigued about your model though.  The only other RC urq model I
was aware of was made by Tamiya ... but I've never seen one.  I'm thinking 
that the stickers are made to replicate a particular car, so simply because
it has cigarette labels doesn't mean it was made in Europe ... but the 
fast/slow in German sure seems to ...

Any chance you could get some photos scanned in so that we can check it out?
