Ready to make your model move? The FFR SC1 Builders Series Chassis Kit is a great platform for many RC model car projects. With a front motor and live axle rear wheel drive layout, this chassis will look at home under your Camaro or Firebird body. Striking a nice balance of realism, value, and relative ease of assembly, this kit is ready for your next project! 


Important: Not all wheel options are kept stocked! Some are printed to order. Please allow us up to 3 business days for us to fulfill your order prior to shipping. You will receive an email once your order has been shipped. We appreciate your patience and understanding.    


Brass axle gears now available! An all metal gear drivetrain is optional when you choose to include brass gears from the selection above. Brass gears provide a highly durable drivetrain that will withstand far more abuse than the standard resin gears. Best suited for more performance oriented buyers, or beginners as brass gears are easier to install, and will not break or wear quickly due to poor alignment.     


Wheelbase: 102mm

Width (approx.): 70mm


Required components to complete you car (not included):

  • Transmitter/Receiver
  • 2S LiPo Battery with JST RCY plug/Charger
  • Body
