This is the Kyosho Tomahawk 1/10 2wd Buggy Kit. In 1983, Kyosho decided they needed a pure race chassis. By modifying and tweaking the acclaimed Scorpion chassis, Kyosho engineers had a race car. When it was released, the Tomahawk swept the competition in Japan and around the world, creating a true legend.
Kyosho has listened to the requests from their fans, and the Tomahawk has become the 3rd model in Kyosho's Vintage Series. Keep in mind, this Tomahawk is not a reproduction of the original machine. Key components have been updated with modern technology to deliver superior performance. Incorporating metal parts from the 2014 Scorpion such as the 6061T6 aluminum main frame chassis, forged suspension arms, and 2-piece aluminum diecast gearbox, the Tomahawk is tough as nails. But, the Tomahawk will always be a pure racing machine with its characteristic Spartan double deck chassis. The radio box has been eliminated to reduce weight and the battery is side mounted for optimal weight distribution for further improved racing performance.
