MCD Racing

MCD Racing

Rossendale Models is the longest standing stockist of MCD Racing radio controlled competition cars and spares in the World.  MCD is a truly innovative company and was the first to bring four wheel drive (4WD) to the 1/5th large-scale model car racing scene.  It also brought us the first valved shock absorber.

The XR5 Rally Has Arrived

This December sees the arrival of the all new XR5 Rally from MCD Racing.  Following on from the pedigree of the peerless X4 Rally comes the latest incarnation - the brand new X5. Built on the tried and tested 5 series chassis the X5 shares many of the best high-end features of the XS-5 Super Sport but comes with its own unique body, rear wing, top air intake and a specialised rigid roll cage to make this car one of the most robust in the range, ready to take whatever punishment you can throw at it!

Existing owners of the XS-5 will also be able to convert their vehicle with the conversion kit that will also be available soon. As with the other MCD cars in the range the new X5 will be available in both Competition and FT (Factory Team) editions.
