LRP Porsche GT3 “Green Hell”

May 14, 2014 No Comments by

If you know what “Grüne Höelle” means – and no, it’s not a Goth-metal act from Sweden – you’re  probably already taking a good long look at this LRP Porsche GT3 Cup racer from RC maker LRP. The model and the company are both new (they haven’t even figured out their pricing, yet) but it looks to us like this crew knows a thing or two about putting a great-looking body on the hoof – perfect for those collectors who like their images on the move. And move, it does: based on the S10 “Blast TC” chassis, the ready-to-run car comes toting a 540-sized motor, a digital speed control, and LRP’s A2-STX Pro 2.4GHz transmitter, as well as a fully adjustable on-road suspension built with ball bearings in all the right spots. LRP also includes four-hole “Big Bore” shocks, anodized parts, sway bars, foam-insert VTEC tires, a charger, a battery pack, and, most importantly, a full-on, highly detailed user manual for both the experienced user and newbie alike. Head banging is optional. Rock on.  – DCX Staff

About the author

I’ll start by saying that my “real world” job for 37 years was being an AeroSpace Engineer in the Preliminary Design Group at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base for 37 years. I’ve been a car nut (as well as an airplane nut) for as long as I can remember but I never intended to be a writer. I began collecting 1/43 scale diecast models in 1966 and wrote a story about making the Dinky and Mebetoys Ford GT models more accurate for Collector’s Automotive Replica Society (CARS) in ’68. Then in the early ‘70’s I bought one of John Day’s first white-metal kits, the Mercedes 300SLR, and wrote a story about that which was published in Scale Modeler in 1972. John liked it and sent some more kits and, well, things just got out of hand. I’ve written about 1/43 scale models (and kits) in one or more magazine continuously since then and those Fords and the 300SLR (yes, I still have it) have been joined by about 3500 more models. Although I’ve never been out of the country, this hobby has given me the opportunity to make friends all over the world, something that would never have happened if I hadn’t bought those Ford GT’s. At this point I’ve had more than 1700 magazine articles published and plan to add some more to that with DiecastX. I’m really looking forward to this association with a great group of people who have helped make the hobby what it is and hope to make a lot more new friends through these pages.
