Light a Fire!|
This is an updated re-release version of the Fire Dragon, a 4WD buggy originally sold in 1989 and based upon a car in the popular 1980s Japanese comic "Rajicon Boy." Its polycarbonate body features a distinctive swept form, is pre-painted in red, and is even pre-cut for your convenience - just apply the included stickers. An unpainted driver figure is also included for installation in the cockpit. The chassis is an efficient shaft-driven 4WD unit, with front and rear gear differentials in sealed gearboxes, plus 4-wheel independent double wishbone suspension featuring CVA oil dampers. Spike tires give plenty of grip both on- and off-road.
Efficient Shaft-Driven 4WD|
The Fire Dragon (2020) chassis features a shaft-driven 4WD drivetrain married to a lightweight and tough bathtub frame that employs front and rear gearboxes with the suspension attached to them; that suspension utilizes upper "I" and lower "H" arms, and offers a ground-hugging drive. Both gearboxes house a gear differential, and are compact to ensure plentiful ground clearance. The kit also features an aluminum motor mount for superior heat dissipation.
