Tamiya brings back another R/C classic with this Subaru BRAT. Longtime fans will once again experience the nostalgia of their childhood and beginners can enjoy the easy operation of this colorful off-road truck.

About the Subaru Brat
The Bi-drive Recreational All-terrain Transporter was created by Subaru in the late 1970's from their earlier 4WD station wagon model for the US market. Powered by a flat-four engine ranging from 1.6 to 1.8 liters in displacement, this pickup had the unique feature of having jump seats welded to the truck bed, which allowed it to be imported as a car instead of a truck. One of the car's more famous owners was former US President Ronald Reagan, whose red BRAT is restored and displayed at his former residence in California.

Tamiya Subaru Brat 1/10 Off-Road 2WD Pick-Up Truck Kit
Its a Tamiya good quality kit for what it is. I have the original and now the re release. It has 2 bodies one hard plastic one lexan both are nice. All the parts were there and it came with 4 ball bearings for the transmission ans beadlock wheels.

I got the Fast eddy blackfoot bearing kit it came with 2 bearings i didnt need but was cheaper in the end. the 2 bearings are 5x8x2.5. Also replaced the ESC with a hobbywing 1060 so i can run lipos. The tble 02 has no low cutoff for the lipo's.

This is not a basher just a Rc truck with a scale look and lots of fun to drive.
