1/10 R/C Car Series No.309 (ITEM 58309)

Thundering around off-road stadiums with immense tires, Monster Trucks have fascinated the world for years. Tamiya is proud to present its latest radio-controlled monster truck: the Twin Detonator. In order to generate power worthy of its dynamic image, the chassis has been equipped with a motor in both the front and the rear. With the battery located in the middle of the chassis, the Twin Detonator is perfectly balanced for rough riding. The centrally positioned servo ensures the equal alignment of the steering tie rods, improving control. The four-wheel double wishbone suspension offers flexible handling over all road conditions.

Two motors for a powerful monster truck

The chassis adopts a sturdy gear-train, firmly holding the gearboxes on both sides with a semi-monocoque frame. This arrangement guarantees stability on even the toughest of terrain, and allows easy access and maintenance of gearbox without disassembly.
