The Tamiya Manta Ray buggy made a name for itself when it was originally released in 1990 for being popular for beginners and easily upgradeable for veteran RC hobbyists. The Tamiya Manta Ray is being re-released this year as a limited edition model. The body is inspired by the sleek curved shape of Manta Rays and is made from lightweight and durable polycarbonate. Downforce is provided by the large rear wing and traction is provided with all terrain spike tires mounted on dish wheels to provide excellent handling on any surface.
All of the radio components such as battery and radio system are mounted in the center of the honeycomb bathtub frame for optimum balance. The cars bathtub chassis is mated with 4-wheel double wishbone suspension and equipped with oil filled shocks for stable running in off-road conditions. The Tamiya Manta Ray’s 4WD drivetrain features front and rear sealed gearboxes with internal differential gear units for smooth cornering, and the gearbox itself features a quick-access hatch for convenient and hassle-free maintenance.
