Tracked Classic
Toyotafs Land Cruiser is one of the most recognizable 4WD vehicles in the world, especially the 40, a series which was sold from 1960 to 1984. This R/C model assembly kit recreates the Land Cruiser 40 Pick-Up equipped with 3-sided track units in place of tires. The model is based upon the gear-driven 4WD GF-01FT chassis which features a monocoque frame with power provided by the centrally-positioned motor via front/rear differential gears. The track units not only offer superlative traction compared to tires but also enable the model to run even on snow, sand, mud and other testing conditions with stable grip. A lightweight, polycarbonate body, and driver figure are also included.

GF-01FT Chassis
The GF-01FT is a variant of the GF-01. In place of the original tires are four swinging track units, which are attached with the uprights and are powered via drive sprockets. Each features eight rollers, and the third roller's vertical motion ensures that the GF-01FT enjoys excellent traction. Ground clearance is also significant. The tracks themselves are assembly type, with metal link pins and two types of link (standard, grouser) for running in different conditions.


The combination of classic Land Cruiser 40 body in polycarbonate, and four tracks is an impressive sight indeed!


The included driver figure will add that extra something to your model, perched inside the cabin.
