While on the subject of scale looking buggies, Tamiya has just announced the re-release of the Wild One Off-Roader. It was originally released in 1985, and the kit is once again being made available. Everything you need is in the kit except you’ll need to supply a radio, battery and some paint. It’s a 1/10th scale 2wd vehicle, and uses a 540 brushed motor.
I don’t know if it’s just nostalgia kicking in or what, but I really like the look.
Details should be up soon on the Tamiya USA website.
