Tamiya Limited Edition Metal Dump Truck
This special LIMITED EDITION kit takes the standard Heavy Dump Truck and gives it a new meaner look! The livery design concept is based upon the heavy metal style seen in American rock band culture. The body parts are molded in black, with metal-plated chassis parts and new sticker designs.
This special version depicts a dump truck modeled upon those which do the heavy work in locations like quarries and large-scale construction sites. The body is mounted on the popular gear-driven GF-01 chassis.
The GF-01 chassis plays off the successful and fun line-up of RC kits such as the Wild Willy 2, Volkswagen Type 2, and the Farm King Wheelie. Whereas those kits featured a 2WD and easy to wheelie platform, the GF-01 is a 4WD incarnation with the motor directly placed in the center in order to drive the gears in the front and rear gearboxes.
- Realistic cab and rear bed are injection-molded in black ABS plastic.
- Alternate rear bed between flat and raised positions by changing the position of the 2 stays and snap pins in the body mounts. Note: It is not advised to put objects in the rear bed, or drive the model with it raised.
- Metal-plated wheels are paired with 115mm-diameter tires.
- The 4WD GF-01 chassis frame and (stays, bumper, wheelie bar, etc.) are metal-plated. The sealed gearbox is integrated into the frame, while the built-in differential gears provide smooth cornering.
- 4-wheel double wishbone suspension incorporates friction dampers.
- The ‘square’ setup chassis uses similar tread (194mm) and wheelbase (174mm) lengths.
- Torque-tuned motor is included.
- Includes the Tamiya TBLE-02S ESC (brushless motor and brushed motor compatible)
