The Tamiya Lunch Box "Black Edition" 2WD Electric Monster Truck Kit is a black variant of the ever popular 1/12 scale R/C Lunch Box van. This model features a stylish combination of a Black ABS molded body and chrome-plated wheels. The R/C Lunch Box (first released in 1987) was loved for its camp appearance as much as for its R/C performance. The boxy minivan body is raised up over the monster truck wheels to ensure that this R/C van will get attention anywhere you choose to drive it. 

The durable and easy-to-assemble 2WD chassis employs a box type frame, and features front independent swing arms and a rear rolling rigid suspension. Big 115mm diameter tires offer dynamic running on even the toughest of surfaces. Sealed gearbox protects the diff gear from dirt and sand during off-road driving. Rear mounted wheelie bar enables wild stunt driving.

This is a Great Kit and Fun to put together - It's a BLAST to Drive and with a few Upgrades (Aftermarket) it's even Better. Price is not Bad and Fast Delivery. So if your into RC's and What Something just Fun to Play Around with this is it.

Tamiya Lunch Box "Black Edition" 2WD Electric Monster Truck Kit
A great "first" build. Of course some parts were like that one elusive Lego piece that blends in and was right in front of you the first time. Only downfall on this build was the ESC was defective. With the assistance of AMain, I received another ESC and resolved the issue with Tamiya which sent a new one as well. I give more props to the AMain support team and will be looking for my next build soon, confident that I have a team of professionals backing me up!
