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.
