Fans of the good ol’ Datto 1600 will love this. It’s a highly detailed BRE Datsun 510 1:12 scale remote control car kit, which can be either slowly assembled yourself piece-by-piece, or ordered complete, ready to rally… on the kitchen floor.
The basic kit includes a fibreglass double deck chassis, independent front and rear suspension just like the original classic, only on the BRE 1:12 scale version it gets double wishbones front and rear, with oil coilover shocks and springs. It also features a shaft-driven all-wheel drive system.
The body comes either as a clear polycarbonate Datsun 510 two-door coupe shell, which can be painted in your favourite old-school racing colour scheme yourself, or you can buy it already detailed similar to the images.
It’s a highly detailed kit, with tiny front and rear bumpers, individual headlights and taillights, and a decal kit. It looks pretty awesome all finished with pumped wheel arches and period wheels.
There’s a few different versions of the kit available, depending on your level of expertise in remote control cars. Brock Racing Enterprises offers everything from a bare-bones pack to a fully made car which is ready to go. There’s even a working taillight option for $74.
All up, a ready to drive BRE Datsun 510 1:12 scale remote control car kit costs $399. If you’re a bit like us, and would rather enjoy some time putting it all together, kits start at $199, plus $129 for the radio control components such as the transmitter, battery and motor.
There are also Datsun 240Z racing options available.
