For ultimate on-road style and attitude, there's no beating drifting! With the Strada DC, you get a powerful 4WD touring car chassis with a shaft drivetrain, fully tunable racing suspension and locked rear diff for true drifting action! Topped with an import-style bodyshell and huge rear wing, this car gives you ultimate street style for real sideways action!

The Strada DC features a moulded tub chassis that provides durability and a stable and tough platform for a strong 4WD shaft drivetrain. Pre-built oil-filled shock absorbers and dual-wishbone independent suspension front and rear, give you supreme confidence on all driving surfaces. The MS-22 servo controls the steering through a dual-point steering system that features an integrated servo saver to protect the servo against crash damage.

The Strada 4WD drivetrain uses efficient ball bearings throughout to give drivers maximum runtime and efficiency, and features a molded gear cover to keep dirt and debris away from the gears. Front and rear gear differentials easily transfer the motor's power to the pre-mounted tires at all four corners.
