This is the Tamiya 1/10 scale Hornet RWD buggy kit. The revolutionary 1984 2WD off-road buggy is making a comeback! The Hornet will forever be remembered as one of Tamiya's most popular RC cars ever released, helping create a 2WD RC buggy craze worldwide. It comes packed with excellent performance on dirt as well as on-road tracks and has the power to take on any terrain it meets. Just like the original, this re-release features an easy to assemble chassis and drivetrain consisting of a durable and lightweight ABS resin bathtub frame, differential gear loaded and sealed gearbox, oil filled rear dampers, powerful RS 540 motor and high-performance suspension system. The Hornet is perfect for owners of the original 1984 model, those that always wanted one, and those that want to experience a historic RC buggy for themselves!
