This new crawler features a true-to-scale Toyota Land Cruiser 40 body made from lightweight polycarbonate mounted on an all-new CR-01 chassis and is literally ready to rock.
CR-01 dedicated crawler chassis features heavy-duty ladder frame with strong yet lightweight pressed aluminum channels and resin cross members. The space saved by mounting a compact planetary gearbox enables the battery to be located lower on the chassis for optimum center of gravity.
A planetary gearbox comes includes a 20T pinion gear for a 40.5:1 gear ratio. Separately available 16T-25T pinion gears can be installed for gear ratios ranging from 50.6:1 to 32.4:1. Kit also includes 540 type motor while 2-channel R/C system, ESC, and 7.2V battery & charger are required, but not included.
4-link coil spring suspension provides the flexibility needed to conquer difficult rocky terrain. Inboard dampers are connected to suspension via linkages, which are then connected via stabilizer torsion bar to provide sure-footed balance.
Newly designed 3-piece beadlock wheels are mounted with massive 125mmx56mm rock crawler tires. These work together with the suspension system to generate an impressive amount of ground clearance.
This is the electric powered, radio controlled, 1/10 scale Tamiya Toyota Land Cruiser Off Road Rock Crawler Truck Kit.
