Thunder & Flame
This assembly kit creates an updated re-release version of the classic R/C off-road buggy Thunder Dragon, which appeared in a Japanese cartoon in the 1980s. Its ABS bathtub frame is tough and allows easy maintenance, while 4-wheel double wishbone suspension uses CVA oil dampers and a front stabilizer for a superior ride. Sealed gearboxes front and rear contain differentials with die-cast 3-bevel types for smooth, superior handling feel, and semi-pneumatic spike tires give great grip. The streamlined body is molded in polycarbonate, with non-canopy sections painted in silver. It is pre-cut for convenience.
Tough Shaft-Driven 4WD
The midship motor, shaft-driven 4WD chassis is based around a lightweight and tough monocoque, with 4-wheel independent double wishbone suspension attached to gearboxes: an easy maintenance layout using upper "I" and lower "H" arms. Dual CVA oil dampers at the rear and a single one in the front monoshock setup are joined by a front stabilizer for optimal flex. Gear differential units front and rear are in sealed gearboxes, and an aluminum motor mount further improves reliability.
