Tamiya Sand Scorcher Off-Road 1/10 2WD Buggy (Unassembled Kit)

Originally released in 1979, the R/C Sand Scorcher was greatly received from fans around the world with its humorous form and superb mechanism. Keeping true to the basic layout of the original while incorporating many refined parts, this re-released version of the Sand Scorcher will remind you of the original. This model realistically reproduces the unique form of the buggy which was seen at the one-make race at “Baja 1000” in California, USA. The body is moulded in white polystyrene and can be painted with plastic model paints. The rear-wheel drive 2WD chassis features realistic and aggressive driving performance that will no doubt excite you.

Chassis features a 2mm thick FRP plate with an aluminium reinforcing plate for strength and flexibility to ensure stability. 4-wheel independent suspension features front double trailing arm and rear swing axle setups, die-cast suspension arms, and oil dampers. Electronics and battery are protected by a durable clear plastic mechanism box. Comes equipped with full ball bearings to reduce friction loss, and mounted on the 3-piece centre-lock wheels are grooved front tires and ribbed rear tires that ensure superb off-road performance.
