As I was failing to keep up with my MB in the truck class, Tamiya unloads this bombshell! I purchased it the same day it arrived at my LHS/track in 1990. A very fun and capable truck as it renewed my interest in racing. Truck had one flaw, the DIFF. Worked good for stock classes but going mod (15T or below) caused problems for it. I purchased two TTC (Tamiya Traction Control) transmissions for my 2 runners a few years ago and the trucks ROCK!! I wish I had the TTC when I raced.
At one time, I had 4 of these trucks back in my racing days as I would let a friend run/race one on occasion. Chasing the Losi boys was fun, but winning my share of races was sweeter! I must admit, the King Cab and HI-LUX Monster Racer are my favorite Tamiyas of all time...
