1/10th Off-road Vehicles Tamiya Fire Dragon re-release 4WD buggy coming soon octobre 15, 2020 by Chris Leave a Comment Coming soon from Japanese company Tamiya is the re-release of their Fire Dragon 4WD buggy kit. The Fire Dragon was the machine used by the main character of the manga series « Radicon Boy » and was first released as an R/C model back in 1989. Featuring a unique body styling and parts for a driver figure, this colorful buggy is a great way for beginners to get started with this hobby and for old-timers to remind themselves of their childhood years. The durable chassis features a motor mounted amidships, which powers all four wheels via a shaft drive system. The simple, yet effective, suspension is made up of upper I-arms and lower H-arms for an efficient double wishbone setup. CVA oil dampers at all four corners help absorb shocks from rough terrain while differential gears in the front and rear gearboxes help put the power to the ground smoothly. Shopping!
