2004 Nissan 350z Buyer's Guide

The 2004 Nissan 350z is a V6, 287 bhp sports car that can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 6 seconds. The body kit is somewhat radical in looks, yet the longer you look at it the better it becomes.

If you love this car, you will also love the remote control version. Powered by a .15 cubic inch, 2-stroke engine, the nitro powered model can reach a top speed of 27 mph. This is more than fast enough especially if you are new to remote control cars.

Here is a side-by-side comparison of the real 2004 Nissan 350z versus the 1/10 HPI Super Nitro RS4 RTR (w/ a Nissan 350z Nismo body kit). Also links to where you can buy the remote control model of the Nissan 350z for sale online.

Model Car Review of the Nissan 350z

The HPI 1/10 Super Nitro RS4 RTR w/Nissan 350Z Nismo Body (T-HPI595) is a great r/c model for the 350z enthusiast. The great body kit coupled with the realism of the 2-stroke nitro model engine makes this a good model to buy.

The HPI 1/10 Super Nitro RS4 RTR is also "super sized" to be 20% bigger than 1/10 scale models. This makes the model bigger, more stable and easier to drive.

But best of all, it simply looks like the real machine.

This model also comes ready-to-run (RTR), it comes with the body kit, engine and radio control system. The only items you need to buy separately is a beginner starter pack (glow plug, fuel bottle, glow starter, wrench) and polycarbonate body paint.
