For a limited-time only, the iconic car from the 1977 Monaco GP is back again, this time as a re-issue of the pre-assembled kit without R/C system previously available in 2012. Do you want to get out and driving ASAP? Then this kit is for you, coming pre-assembled, painted and just requiring R/C equipment, battery pack and charger!

The Tyrrell P34, the only 6-wheeled F1 race car ever to compete in the history of F1, caused a lot of fanfare and controversy when it was introduced in 1976. The Tamiya 1/10 R/C kit faithfully captures the speed and essence of this iconic race car as it raced in the 1977 Monaco GP. It comes loaded with slightly updated markings to faithfully capture the cars history.

Six of the Best

The Tyrrell P34 featured a revolutionary design with four front wheels, which made its debut during the 1976 season. The following year, First National City Bank became the team's main sponsor and the cars were given a blue and white livery and more aerodynamic full-body fairing. However, the cars reverted to the previous year's semi-fairing for the Monaco Grand Prix. This special edition R/C model assembly kit depicts the 1977 Monaco GP Tyrrell P34, with the polycarbonate body, engine, rear wing and more pre-painted, plus complex sections pre-cut. Simply paint the driver and apply stickers to complete the body!

Special 6-Wheeled F103 Chassis

The high performance direct drive 2WD chassis utilizes a semi double deck frame with 1.5mm thick upper and 2.5mm thick lower FRP plates. Kingpin coil spring 4-wheel independent front suspension consists of the one-piece lower arm and individual left/right upper arms. One servo controls the steering of all four front wheels. The rear suspension features a rigid T-bar with a TRF damper and low-friction pads. The spur gear has a built-in ball diff for limited slip effect. Grippy sponge tires masterfully harness the power provided by the torque-tuned motor.
