This is a re-issued R/C assembly kit of the Hot Shot. It originally debuted in 1985 as Tamiya’s first 4WD off-road buggy.

The buggy features a shaft drive 4WD system providing stable performance while running and cornering. Drive and propeller shafts feature dog bone type linkage, while front and rear differential gears provide smooth handling. Furthermore, the front and rear dampening is handled by a single mono-shock for both the front and rear suspension in addition to using sway bars to hold corning performance.


  • Redesigned chassis features 4-wheel double wishbone suspension with unique front and rear mono-shocks.
  • Diaphragm-type oil dampers provide stable off-road driving performance.
  • Propeller shaft features dog bone type linkage to optimize power transmission efficiency.
  • Buggy body with large rear wing remains faithful to the original styling.
  • Aluminum heat sink helps keep the motor cool and is also an eye-catching chassis highlight.
  • Triangular wheel hubs further enhance the buggy's unique look.

Tamiya Hotshot 1/10 4WD Off-Road Buggy (Re-Release)
The Tamiya Hotshot is the car that inspired me into the Rc hobby and is one of the most iconic models ever made it was Tamiya's first 4x4 buggy and continues to be desired by all hobbyists young and old. The hotshot is a joy to assemble and drive to this day with the nostalgia of yesteryear race-inspired suspension and handling with a scale appearance that is sure to please all who are lucky enough to get their hands on one.
