Can anyone tell me if the Fly Porsche 911 (Gulf livery, model 036104) is rear-engined , ie. motor mounted behind the rear axle ?

Thanks for that info. Great ! The rear engine position makes me want to get one of these cars even more. The extreme weight bias of that rear mounted engine might replicate the feared/respected/loved handling traits of the early 911s. They were known for having great traction in a straight line and out of corners but notorious for their lift-off oversteer. One had to be very talented or brave to master a 911. Newer 911s have been tamed significantly to the point where apparently an average driver can go quite quickly in them safely.

I have no doubt that the Fly racing 911s with their inline motors are faster than the regular, rear-engined ones but somehow, for me, the rear-engine design is more attractive due to the fact that it's similarly positioned to the real car (although in this application it is transversely mounted while the 1:1 car is inline).
