The Tamiya Monster Beetle was a classic R/C phenomenon from the 1980’s. After a long absence it is back as an updated assembly kit ready to traverse back yards across the country. The model features a stylized version of the timeless Volkswagen Beetle body, mounted on an all-action 2WD chassis fitted with big tires for rough-and-tumble off-road fun. This updated version promises to be great fun for both beginners and Tamiya R/C kit veterans alike!

New parts come with the kit are rear universal driveshafts to transfer power smoothly, and they are also equipped with protective rubber boots. A large dust is included to sport large diameter 130mm tires, chrome-plated wheels and an ABS bodyshell with sticker sheet. The new kit also features a rugged original ABS space frame chassis with double-wisebone front, trailing arm rear suspension setups and CVA oil-filled dampers.
