... 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?
