This is one of those special Tamiya kits. It is based off of the SRB chassis Rough Rider but it contains some overly engineered parts. The trademark piggyback upside down shock system is unique only to this chassis. It also has tons of cast aluminium parts that are very durable and will last decades. Pair this with some sand paddle tires and you're good to go. Wonderful decal set too!
if one is interested going back in time to experience rc when is still relatively new, here is your chance. Don't expect it to be like modern brands such as axial or gmade. That unique piggy back shock oil bottle tells you is something different, when you new comers can't tell or notice from the photos shown.
For its history and price, i got to give it 5/5.
