Porsche 908 RTR

In 1967, Carrera introduced a series of beautiful 1/24 scale kits. Inspired by the American Russkit models, they used a multi-piece plastic chassis designed after the Russkit metal unit, vacuum formed clear plastic bodies painted from the inside and featuring injection molded plated accessories and Mabuchi motors.
Racing molded rubber-foam tires and ultra-narrow front tires over machined aluminum wheels were used in these kits.
The first series used the upgraded 1967 Mabuchi FT16D with ball bearing, then a dark red German made Buehler motor, sort of a better quality Mabuchi clone.
By 1970 and after the demise of the 1/24 scsle commercial raceways worldwide, Carrera modified and simplified their chassis mold, introduced an upgraded (but slower) Buehler motor and did away with the go-fast wheels, replacing them by die-cast zinc models patterned after the actual racing models,and molded rubber tires. This Porsche 908 is a perfect example of this new series.
