The Tamiya Hornet is back and is more fun than ever before! Originally released in 1984, the Hornet stands as one of Tamiya's most popular models, and is credited for helping to launch the 2WD buggy boom worldwide. Just like the original, this re-release features an easy to assemble chassis and drive train consisting of a durable but lightweight ABS resin bathtub frame, a sealed gear diff loaded gearbox, oil filled rear dampers, powerful RS 540 motor and high performance suspension system.
