    June 9, 2014 by Bart_Banaan

    The HPI RS4 MT was the first “truck” version of the HPI RS4 RC car series. It was first released in 1997 in both electric and nitro version. The HPI RS4 MT was a powerful 4WD racing truck. The “MT” stood for Monster Truck, however it’s more of a racing truck by today’s standards. It came with a VW Baja Bug body (pictured here), Ford F150 body or a red Dodge Ram body. It is still considered a great off-road racing truck by today’s standards and also a great model to have in your collection.

  4. Tamiya Lancia 037 Rally – TA03R-S chassis – Limited Edition – Item # 58278

    July 14, 2013 by Bart_Banaan

    This article is about the model #58278 from Tamiya, the Lancia 037 Rally released in 2001.
    Tamiya released this car as a limited edition due to the Limited Edition ABS body.

    Tamiya used the TA03RS chassis for this model, R being rear or mid motor, S being the short wheelbase variant. The chassis is high-grade and sophisticated. The bodyshell is very detailed and is quite similar to the first Lancia Rally (#58040) but is not quite the same as the wheelarches are smaller, body mounts are re-located and the glass is different on this re-release of the Lancia 037 body. The here used re-release body has a much better likeness to the real car. (more…)
