Tamiya Tyrrell P34 Six Wheeler 1976 Japan GP Special Edition F1

Tamiya Tyrrell P34 Six Wheeler 1976 Japan GP Special EditionTamiya unveils the Tyrell P34 Six Wheel 1976 Japan GP Special Edition RC F1 car! The Tyrrell P34 caused a sensation within the F1 world when it was unveiled in 1975. The car was designed to enhance braking and cornering performance by reducing the size of the drag inducing front tires while preserving contact patch area through the use of four tires, thereby creating the only 6 wheeled machine in F1 history. This iconic F1 car was first released by Tamiya in radio controlled form in 1977. It’s such an iconic machine for Tamiya that the real thing sits at Tamiya’s lobby in Shizuoka Japan! This special release comes with many optional optional parts for the modified F103 chassis in which the polycarbonate body sits on. The upgrades include the TRF special damper, low friction damper pads, carbon reinforced F upgrights, a torque tuned motor, a high torque servo saver and sponge tires. Read more…

NIB Tamiya Porsche 959 For Sale

NIB Tamiya Porsche 959 For SaleIf there was ever the RC car equivalent of a needle in a haystack, it would have to be tracking down one of the original Tamiya Porsche 959 kits. Back in ’86 when this 1/12 scale car was released, it had pretty much every feature the RC car enthusiast could ask for including oil filled aluminum shocks, a full time 4wd drivetrain, the RX-540VZ Technigold motor and even a working set of headlights. Unfortunately, because the kit was fairly expensive, not many were made, and those 959s that did reach the hands of a hobbyist usually took a beating. So, not only are they hard to track down, they’re pretty much impossible to find new in the box. That’s why we were so shocked to find that a member of ebay actually had one for sale. The box looks to be in excellent shape, and all of the parts are still packed in their original blister packs. There is no doubt this one will result in one heck of a bidding war. Check it out below.

First Traxxas TRX-4 Unboxing Pictures

Traxxas TRX-4 First UnboxingA member of the official Traxxas forums, who goes by the username Wolfslash16, just posted the first photos we’ve seen of the recently introduced TRX-4 in the wild.
