    Update v2: Updated to v2 chassis. Reworked parameters.  Stinger Jr. has been signficiantly buffed to rival the performance of 10-Ko.

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

    Stinger Jr. was a desing headed by Toy-Volt USA. It is a nod to the success of the original 1/10 GP touring car released in the 2000s

    Tips:

    • Stinger Jr. drives similarly to Stinger; the car has decent acceleration, good top speed, and excelent grip.
    • Tap steering can provide better turn radius and faster cornering speed that locking the front wheels in a turn.
    • The car often needs to slow down ahead of tight corners much like the larger counterpart since it cannot powerslide well.
    • Like with 10-Ko and Purp XS, the attributes derived from the larger car makes Stinger Jr. one of the highest-paced chibis (rivaling amateur cars) when played effectively.
    • The CPU for this car can be pretty competitive on par with 10-Ko.

    Misc:

    • The car apppears to be a lighter shade than Phimeek's Stinger due to my decision to use a lighter vertex shading (consistent with most of my other cars) as well as some differences in lighting on the texture itself.
    • There is only one skin for this car since I was not feeling motivated to do more while working on several other cars.
