The Tamiya Monster Beetle is back! After a long absence, the classic 1980's R/C phenomenon returns as an updated "you build" kit ready to conquer and destroy anything in its path. The Monster Beetle 2015 features the classic Volkswagen Beetle body, mounted on an all-action 2WD chassis fitted with big tires for rough-and-tumble off-road fun. With "Albert Attaboy" behind the wheel, this updated version promises to be great fun for both beginners and vintage enthusiasts around the world.
The injection-molded plastic body accurately captures the form of the early VW Beetle. Includes many of the original stickers kept over from the original model design as well as newly-designed markings. The rugged original ABS space frame chassis has been kept. It utilizes double-wishbone front, and trailing arm rear suspension setups in tandem with CVA oil-filled dampers. Rear universal drive shafts transfer power smoothly, and come with rubber boots to protect outdrives from dust. A large dust cover is included to protect the R/C gear equipment. The model has 130mm-diameter tires with a combined lug/pin spike tread. They are paired with gold color plated one-piece wheels. Includes a driver figure.
