Tamiya Hotshot II in collaboration with Blockhead Motors

Last year the extremely popular Tamiya Wild One came in a special Blockhead Motors, and latest addition to the collaboration is this awesome Tamiya 58710 Hotshot II 'Blockhead Edition'.

The original Tamiya Hotshot II was originally launched in 1987, and has been relaunched continuously in the years since. For this version, Tamiya has collaborated with Jun Watanabe of Blockhead Motors and made this updated version in cool Blockhead Motors colors. The body of the car comes painted in Brilliant Blue and carved.

It's not just the colors that are new on the Hotshot II Blockhead Motors though. Tamiya has developed a new safety cage for the car that is a little taller, to give a little extra realism. The rims and uprights also have a matte finish, and brand new stickers are included with the car.

The car has two oil-filled CVA shocks in the rear, as well as a single central CVA damper in the front. In addition, license plates, headlight housings, and window nets are included, so your Tamiya Hotshot 2 Blockhead Motors will look amazingly realistic.

Note: The car is delivered without an ESC. We recommend a Hobbywing QuicRun 1060.
