    Update v2: Updated to v2 chassis. Reworked parameters. 10-Ko has recieved a nerf to acceleration and small buffs to top speed and handling. The car is now clearly superior to Starfire GT in all aspects and is balanced to be a bit more overpaced for its class.

    Part of the SD02 line that succeeded the original Starfire GT.

    As a rising brand in the competitive RC-racing scene, Type 0 Racing made a name for itself in 2012 when its factory driver won a major international tournament with the E10-4 V2 chassis. Nicknamed "Tenshi" - meaning "angel" - by RC enthusiasts in Japan, the E10-4 V2 continued to be a likable and affordable option in its home country and elsewhere even after the release of the E10-5 that succeeded it.

    Toy-Volt, in collaboration with Type 0 Racing and partner brand Oskari, later released a comical version of the winning car and bodyshell. Type 0 supplied custom-made dampers and a torque-tuned motor for the car. The result of the collaborative project was 10-Ko, which aims to replicate the driving characteristics of the E10-4 on a smaller and cuter chassis.

    Tips:

    • 10-Ko has similar driving characteristics to Oskari Angel; it has extreme acceleration and good handling at the cost of a low top speed and stability issues arsing from the massive wheel torque.
    • Due to the shorter chassis, 10-Ko's rear torque oversteer and front torque understeer are more apparent than in its larger sibling. This can make recovery difficult in tight locations.
    • The CPU is pretty competitive due to the stat spread, moreso than any of the other chibi releases.

    ...

    Misc:

    • The name "10-Ko" is some overly-complex wordplay. "天使" - meaning "angel" in Japanese - is pronounced as "tenshi." "天子" can also be read as "tenshi" and means "sky/heavenly child." To make things even more confusing, "子" is also pronounced as "ko" in kunyomi (as opposed to "shi" when pronounced in the onyomi). To conclude, 10-Ko is English wordplay for "天子" or "Ten-Ko". 3AM brain just works differently.
    • The text on the wheels read ""天子".
    • The default and only skin is a simplified version of Oskari Angel's main skin.

    Changelog:

    • v1.1 - fixed normals on body.prm. Tweaked AI.
    • v1.2 - lowered CoM, readjusted inertia, friction, and spring values.
    • v2.0 - new chassis model and new parameters
