Back in 1994 I had one of these.
The chassis was used, but in a job lot of RC stuff there was a brand new body parts kit, so I built it up.

Shortly after, a friend of mine got into model rockets with solid fuel jet engines.

During a night of "intoxicants" we cooked up an idea for a rocket car.

The Martini F2 was duely fitted with a solid fuel rocket engine . . . . .

It didn't go well, and the F2 car caught fire in a big way and was melted.

In 2008 I managed to score another one of these off eBay (super cheap!) and it now sits on the shelf. It eased my conscience a little, after destroying such a mint example. However I still have an urge to graft a solid fuel jet engine to it. I think I know what went wrong last time . . . . .

'1/10th Scale Racing Car Suitable For Radio Control'.

Not a a 1/10th scale radio-controlled racing car. I think Tamiya knew the limits of these things, as that phrasng is very telling.

Same chassis as the previous March F2 car. Very simple, But fragile.
Check that review for more details.

Came with a better looking Renault Elf body, Well it's a matter of taste.

I bet these were great on a proper track, But did we have any good tracks here in the UK back then? Don't think so. A shame really, Because these cars would not last two minutes on the street!
