Tamiya Hornet

Nothing can compare to a classic. The original Tamiya Hornet was responsible for creating a worldwide fever for the 2WD RC and fans of the original 1984 Hornet will delight in its rerelease.

Featuring 2WD this R/C delivers high performance action on dirt, paved roads or any other terrain you can take it! The kit version allows you to assemble the chassis and drivetrain to get ready for some off road buggy boom fun. Or go with the XB Version that comes fully assembled, is pre-painted and with stickers pre-applied so you can start driving right out of the box.

The Hornet comes with a high performance RS 540 motor and a tough shock absorbent bathtub frame with side and front bumpers that can stand up to crashes and high speed thrills. The three piece assembly type wheels make the Hornet look even more realistic and optional ball bearings reduce friction on the hornet and increase reliability and durability.

The ribbed racing tires in front and spiked buggy tires in the rear, give the Hornet superior control for turning and acceleration. The highly detailed polycarbonate body is molded in black with clear side windows, headlights, suspension springs and even a driver figure for a realistic look. An improvement from the original is the electronic speed control, which allows for forward and reverse motion.

You know what they say the original is always the best and now here is your chance to own a piece of R/C history! Relive the glory days with the most popular R/C off road buggy on the plant, The Hornet.
