Great news for R/C fans without the time or space to carry out a paint job on their car - this R/C model assembly kit features the stylised Toyota Land Cruiser polycarbonate body cut out and pre-painted in red with a gleaming white roof and black trim. The resin driver figure also comes pre-painted. This model runs on the all-action big-tire GF-01 chassis.
GF-01: Square Set-up, Excellent Performance:
This gear-driven 4WD chassis is based around a lightweight and tough monocoque frame, with power provided by the centrally-positioned motor. It utilizes a 'square' setup with near-identical tread and wheelbase lengths. Sealed gearbox is integrated into the frame and protects from dust and debris, while the built-in front and rear differential gears provide smooth cornering. This is reinforced by 4-wheel double wishbone suspension and friction dampers plus a 2-piece tie rod steering setup with the servo on the left for excellent response. Furthermore, it has black 5-spoke wheels with big 110mm diameter tires, in addition to a rear support bar with roller to prevent the model from flipping.
All parts according to Tamiya Guide books, Tamiya manuals and Tamiya parts listings.
