The prominent figure of the R/C car boom was the Buggy Champ which was first released in 1979. Tamiya is now proud to re-release the Buggy Champ to celebrate the car's 30thyear anniversary. The chassis has been finely tuned while maintaining the original features of the chassis such as the unique front double trailing arms and rear torsion suspension.R/C fans' hearts will definitely race when they see the nostalgic form and relive the dynamic performance of this machine.
This is a 1/10 R/C assembly kit, measuring 400mm in length when totally assembled; it features a full set of ball bearings, an ESC and type 540 motor included. Comes loaded with many top quality parts for improved performance such as a duralumin plate reinforced 2mm thick FRP main frame, die-cast front and rear suspension arms, front axle; even the wheel hubs have been newly designed for this re-release. Additional features include a clear transparent waterproof case that protects the R/C mechanisms, reinforced front uprights soaking up the bumps courtesy of the re-designed oil dampers.
Comes in the same original blister pack style packaging as the 1979 original, and features the same injection moulded hard plastic body as the original; easily painted with Tamiya's range of TS spraypaint or indeed any car paint. Can be used with separately available LF1100-6.6V Racing Pack (Item 55105) which is specifically made for this machine. Add it to your basket now and re-live the golden age of RC action!
