Hip Hip, Hoo-Ray!|
This re-release of the Manta Ray is certainly news to celebrate for fans of Tamiya vintage 4WD buggy models! The body - inspired by the watergoing ray of the natural world - is still a classic nearly 30 years on from its original release in 1990; it and the large rear wing are molded in lightweight and tough polycarbonate. Stylish dish type wheels are paired with spike tires for superlative grip on- or off-road. For those looking for even greater performance, why not pair with our dedicated Hop-Up Option parts set?
A Rugged 4WD Chassis|
This kit's 4WD chassis is based around a bathtub frame with honeycomb rib pattern for excellent rigidity, and which also facilitates a low center of gravity thanks to a low attachment position for the battery pack. Its 4-wheel independent double wishbone suspension employs CVA oil dampers, while lightweight and durable hollow lower arms feature a smooth design to discourage dirt from sticking to them. Differential gears are contained in sealed gearboxes, each with a quick-access maintenance hatch. The 3-piece steering tie-rod gives sharp response, and ball adjusters allow easy altering of toe angle.
