Has anyone else noticed that the Dirt Thrasher is just a Manta Ray with a Terra Scorcher body on it? I know that Tamiya will market numerous models concurrently with different bodies on similar chassis, but I've never known them to issue different chassis with the same body before.

I owned a Mantaray for a while when I first got back into this hobby. It was cheap, Strong & handled well for a budget 4WD. But I couldn't get my head around it's looks. A strange body which indeed looks like a Manaray.

Prices are VERY cheap. And now Tamiya re-released it?? What were they thinking?

No ball diffs in here or bearings. But it does have oil dampers. The chassis & gearbox's were the makings of many other incarnations to come.
