Fresh out of the Tamiya factory is new Tamiya Asterion Racing Truck. While at first glance, the Asterion may appear to be nothing more than Tamiya’s old TA02 based Ford F-150 re-badged with a new decal sheet, it is actually based on the new belt driven XV-01 off-road rally chassis. From what we understand, Tamiya chose to fit the Asterion with longer oil filled shocks and a new front bumper to make it even more off-road friendly. A lexan truck body and a set of chrome wheels with block pattern truck tires (which both look eerily similar to the F-150 of old) round out the package. The Asterion is expected to hit hobby shop shelves this November.
