Drive an Icon!
The Fighting Buggy was originally exported as the Super Champ in 1982 across the globe. For a limited time only, it is back as a special re-release celebrating 36-plus years after it originally made its debut in hobby stores.
The re-release kit begins with a new name, which is the same as that used by the original Japanese release of the R/C model. While it features a variety of tweaks and upgrades, Tamiya's designers made sure to retain the drivability, appearance and characteristics of the original.
★ 1/10 scale R/C model assembly kit. ★ The classic body of the original is reproduced in durable ABS resin with an aluminium roof panel with wing. ★ Stickers retain many of the themes of the classic model while also adding some new motifs. ★ Lightweight and durable 2.5mm thick FRP chassis plate is compatible with Item 55105 Tamiya LF Battery LF1100-6.6V Racing Pack (M-Size) (sold separately). ★ Original transverse damper rear suspension setup with progressive spring and separate oil reserve tank is again employed. Front suspension is double trailing arm type. Front/rear sus arms are die-cast. ★ Employs durable die-cast sealed gear case with direct drive setup, which also houses the motor. ★ Ribbed front and rear spike tires. They are fitted securely to 3-piece wheels. ★ Type 540 motor included. ★ Comes in nostalgic blister pack style packaging.
