Tamiya Blitzer Beetle RC Buggy

The Tamiya Blitzer Beetle is a fun and charming take on the traditional VW Baja Buggy, that's been popular in the Baja 1000 since the 1960's. The Baja Bugs are still popular in the incredibly tough endurance race today, and is eligible in several classes.

This Blitzer Beetle is a rear-wheel drive buggy, with double wishbone suspension in all four corners. Combined with CVA oil dampers and the Tamiya Blitzer tire set, made especially for this car, it offers an entertaining drive, perfect for gravel tracks and hard surfaces. The engine is placed at the rear, just like the original, which combined with the rear wheel drive gives really fun driving characteristics.

The ABS bathtub chassis is incredibly durable and the enclosed rear differential is well protected from dust, dirt and debris making it a very durable car, even when driven hard. The body is made in black ABS, with stickers to replicate the drop/splash livery. The ABS body not only means that it's incredibly sturdy, but also that you don't need to paint it (unless you want to of course - in that case we recommend Tamiya TS paints).

The car itself is a fun, entry-level RC buggy that does well on gravel, light terrain and paved surfaces. A kit well-suited to newcomers and nostalgics alike.
