A Leading U.S. Tractor Truck
The Cascadia Evolution is an aerodynamically advanced and more fuel efficient version of the Cascadia tractor manufactured by Freightliner Trucks, a leading manufacturer in the North American market. The model's ladder frame chassis features aluminum side channels with resin cross members and is equipped with a highly realistic suspension utilizing metal leaf springs and friction dampers. The model is powered by the two rear wheel axles, which are fitted with built-in differentials to enable smooth cornering. Of course, the sleek aerodynamics of the truck are accurately captured. A 4-channel R/C system and multi-function unit allow you to drive the vehicle and experience realistic lights, sounds and vibrations. Connect the model to a separately sold semi-trailer to push it over a meter in length!

The MFC-01 unit includes LEDs to recreate controllable blue-tinged HID headlights.

The interior has been authentically captured, featuring details such as dashboard and seats.

Taillights, turn signals and brake lights all look just like the real thing and accompany truck movement.

Use the coupler to attach any of Tamiya's 1/14 scale trailers, and listen out for the different engine sound.

Highly realistic suspension utilizes metal leaf springs and friction dampers. Rear axles are fitted with differential gears.

R/C units and battery pack are installed inside the cabin. Cabin hatch is openable to ensure easy battery pack replacement.
