The look and feel of the Formula Ten is enhanced by its authentic scale size - the Formula Ten is almost exactly 1/10th the size of the real thing!
Durable and Easy to Tune
The Formula Ten is a 'T-bar' style 'pan car', which makes it very easy to set up and highly resistant to damage, so it's perfect for beginners, club racers and fun running. It is rear wheel drive just like a real formula car, and with fewer moving parts than an RC touring car it is much less complicated than a 4WD touring car kit.

Simple to Add Options
A selection of standard parts are included in the Formula Ten kit to make it easy to set up for all drivers, regardless of skill or experience level.
Build It Yourself
The Formula Ten is available in kit form with a clear 6-piece body. The simplicity of the kit design makes it an easy way to get into the RC hobby and learn about assembly, mechanics, electronics and chassis tuning. A complete assembly manual is included. All you need to supply is the paint for the car's bodyshell, instant glue (CA or cyanoacrylate) for the tyres, rubber cement for the inner foams, strapping tape for the batteries and normal RC electronics (see below). The only tools you will need are some basic RC tools (Philips and flat head screwdrivers, needle-nose pliers, side cutters, hobby knife, body reamer, calipers if you have them, and a few hour's worth of build time!
Fits Standard Electronics
Standard-size electronic components will fit easily in the chassis, so no expensive micro electronics are needed. If this is your first RC car, your local model shop will be able to supply you with a good-quality radio set such as the HPI TF-1 or TF-3. If you already have radio gear, it's very easy to fit your own steering servo, receiver, electronic speed controller (ESC), 540 motor, and a 7.2v or 4.8v battery pack. The complete list of equipment you will need is:
