- Raikiri would later get a radio control counterpart in the form of Raikiri GT, designed as a racing version (implying that the Mini 4WD version is the road car model). Originally, Raikiri GT was designed for nitro-engine (TG10-Mk.2 FZ) chassis, but an electric version (with white bodyshell and TT-02 chassis) was later released. Simply installing a rear wing to the Mini 4WD version of Raikiri can slightly replicate the look of the Raikiri GT.
