Nissan created the R390 GT1 as a challenger to the 1997 24 Hours of Le Mans. The car featured a carbon composite monocoque and a 600hp 3.5-liter twin turbo V8 engine for superb performance. It recorded incredible lap times during pre-qualifying and went on to perform admirably during the race itself. The R390 assembly kit was originally released on the TA-03R 4WD touring car platform in 1997 and it's offered again on the easy to assemble TT-01 Type E chassis.

This compact, lightweight unit is equipped with a gyro sensor system and when it detects the car beginning to slide, it quickly applies counter steering to prevent spins and maintain the car's stability. This is especially helpful when driving rear-wheel drive cars, such as the F104 and RM-01 chassis machines, or driving on slippery track surfaces. The counter steering range can be adjusted and sensitivity may also be adjusted by your transmitter when a 3-channel R/C system is used.
Note: Gyro systems are banned from use in organized competition in the United States from leading sanctioning organizations. It is also banned for use in the Tamiya Championship Series. The item is recommended for hobbyists who are not racing in such events.
