All Electric R/C Car Series No.496


Length: 430mm. Image shows painted and assembled model.

The Fast Attack Vehicle was an R/C buggy that reproduced the look of a type of special military vehicle. This re-released version features improvements to meet the modern R/C standard while maintains the same basic chassis design as the original 1984 model. It also features a realistic body, roll cage, and a driver figure as well as equipment such as machine gun, which can all be finished with plastic model paints. In addition, the black/white/olive drab camouflage pattern can be easily depicted with kit-included stickers. Semi-pneumatic grooved front and rear tires with block-pattern tread offer superb traction on off-road surfaces.

Low & Tough Chassis
Durable lightweight ABS frame is matched with a battery case which is compatible with modern power sources such as Tamiya Racing Packs and LF batteries. 4-wheel independent suspension consists of coil springs and trailing arms, featuring 186mm-wide tread to ensure excellent off-road stability. Enclosed gearbox protects differential gears from dirt and debris and enables smooth cornering. In addition, driveshafts feature dogbone-type joints and dust covers to enhance durability.
