Quick Overview

Tamiya 1/14 R/C kit modelled on their famous Monster Beetle model

Details

Trail Beetle
This R/C model assembly kit creates a vehicle which offers an excellent off-road drive. Molded in detailed ABS plastic, its racy body is inspired by customized Volkswagen Beetles, and features exaggerated fenders, a simplified rear end, triple auxiliary lights and more. Metal-plated parts recreate headlights, auxiliary lights and the rear depiction of the engine. The GF-01TR chassis provides a dynamic off-road drive.

GF-01TR: Awesome Traction
This gear-driven 4WD chassis is based around a lightweight and tough monocoque frame, with power provided by the centrally-positioned motor. Reduction gears on each axle slow drive shaft rotation for immense traction, great ground clearance, and the ability to take on tough off-road terrain. The gearbox is sealed to protect from dust and debris, and integrated into the frame; built-in differential gears provide superb traction and durability with the use of included diff putty. 4-wheel double wishbone suspension utilizes friction dampers, while a 2-piece tie rod steering setup with the servo on the left gives excellent response. Yellow wheels are fitted with 115mm diameter hybrid pin spike/lug pattern tires for superior cushioning and grip. The chassis utilizes a 'square' setup with similar tread and wheelbase lengths.

★The Monster Beetle Trail offers immense traction that will take it over all kinds of obstacles.
★Molded in ABS plastic, the body offers plenty of detail. Metal-plated parts add another layer of realism.
★The front is adorned with triple auxiliary lamps, which are metal-plated parts with stickers for decoration.
★Depictions of engine and muffler are also metal-plated parts. The body also features a sporty roll bar.
★Use the included putty in the gear differentials to help endow this model with superb traction.
★All wheels have hub reduction units, which slow down drive shaft output for greater torque.
★The chassis has higher ground clearance that further boosts its capabilities on tough terrain.
★At the core of the GF-01TR chassis is a slimline monocoque which doubles as a gear case.
★Take a closer look at the complex drivetrain, shown here in this profile view of the chassis.
