Special Edition R/C Models No.159


Length: 390mm. Image shows assembled kit.

This R/C assembly kit recreates the 4WD buggy Saint Dragon which was the main model of a popular 1980s Japanese comic. The chassis consists of a tough bathtub frame plus front and rear gearboxes with suspension attached. 4-wheel double wishbone suspension uses CVA oil dampers for a superior ride, and a front stabilizer for a firm setup. The stylish body is molded in polycarbonate and pre-painted white, just requiring application of stickers to finish it.

Efficient Shaft-Driven 4WD
The 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. CVA oil dampers and a front stabilizer contribute further to an excellent 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.
