Originally Funded on Kickstarter!
1/67 Scale Bluetooth RC with Precision Digital Proportional Steering, Variable Speeds, Working lights, and bright indicators! Handles like a real car!
Small enough to keep in your pocket and race anywhere!
The most sophisticated micro race car on the market
- App controls on your phone (friendly interface, easy to use)
- Precision Steering (steer your wheels with 90 degrees of precision)
- Multi-functional lights (enjoy bright left/right turning signals as well as headlights and brake lights)
- Customized speed options (proportional speed control, just like a real car! As well as high and low gear switch!)
- Sensor mode functions (‘catch me if you can’ – your car runs away from you under ‘cockroach mode’ when you attach our sensor cube)
- So small you can keep in your pocket and race anywhere!
Precision Steering means this steers and drives like a car, NOT like those ebay RC cars! Proportional steering allows down to 15 degrees of control! No more BANG BANG steering!
Have fun racing this car around obstacle courses and race tracks you setup on your desk!

About the Project
As a Scale auto fan I’ve looked all over the world for matchbox sized RC cars but I’ve never been able to find a high quality micro RC car (outside of some very expensive DIY kits from Germany). Quantow was started to help small and medium sized businesses create brand new products.
After helping several customers with record-breakingly small Bluetooth projects, we realized we had the solution right in front of us! With Bluetooth 4.1 BLE, we had a low power, high function way to control a remote control car! The Quantow ‘Gear’ Minicar was developed completely in-house, from concept design, to mechanical design, PCB design, to programming; we developed everything ourselves over the last couple months.
Now we’ve reached the end of the development cycle and we’ve been searching for a way to fund the tooling for production. Help us bring the Gear Minicar to market (and get a great gift at the same time!).
Thank you from the Quantow Development team!
