This Mini 4WD racer assembly kit creates the Shooting Proud Star, one of the stars of the "Hyper Dash! Yonkuro" strip published to great acclaim in the CoroCoro Aniki comic. In a twist of fate, its designer Hiroyuki Takei also contributed greatly to the original Dash-3 Shooting Star Mini 4WD model, his entry (while still a junior high school student) being chosen in a competition as a base for the now-legendary model. The Shooting Proud Star takes a number of design cues from its illustrious predecessor, and features a thin rapier-like canopy with air intake above it, plus distinctive side intakes. Details such as the superficial front/rear damper units and extravagant wing shape round off the thrilling appearance of the model, which runs on the aerodynamically-efficient midship motor MA chassis. White large-diameter 4-spoke wheels are paired with slick tires.
The Ultra-Efficient MA Chassis The MA (Midship AERO) Chassis has its motor in the center, and features a design which focuses upon achieving outstanding aerodynamic performance. It has a gear ratio of 4:1, 6 individual low-friction rollers, a rear skid bar and other speedy features developed thanks to years of design experience. The single-piece monocoque frame also guarantees that assembling and keeping the car well-maintained is a task that can be performed by beginners and veteran racers alike.
