Tamiya Kumamon RC TractorHow about popping some mad wheelies with an rc tractor this winter? That sounds exactly like something the BSRC Bash Crew could get into. Tamiya has a Kumamon Edition RC Tractor that would be perfect for wild wheelie action. It comes in both kit and RTR form and even has Japanese mascot Kumamon behind the steering wheel. If you watch the video below it looks like Kumamon is having a serious good time cruising around his local bash spot.

The Kumamon tractor comes on a Tamiya WR-02G chassis and has a part number of #58601. You can hit up This Link to check out more cool items over on the official Tamiya USA website.

You never know what you will find behind a BSRC TGIF Mystery Link.
