Away!

This R/C model assembly kit is an updated re-release version of a 1988 buggy from the Tamiya back catalog, which inherited its make-up from the legendary race-oriented Avante. The forward cockpit body design - and the rear wing - are molded in lightweight polycarbonate and pre-painted black, pre-cut with body mount holes pre-made to save on some preparation work. An ABS plastic monocoque frame is employed, with responsive shaft-driven 4WD plus a triple differential setup, four-wheel double wishbone suspension and plenty more - superb off-road driving awaits!

Capable Off-Road Chassis

This model's durable ABS plastic monocoque frame protects vital R/C equipment and boosts suspension performance with its excellent rigidity. A total of three differentials are employed: small front and rear planetary gear differentials, and a center differential with ball thrust bearing; front and rear gearboxes also have maintenance hatches. Universal shafts front and rear ensure smooth, efficient drive and minimal worry about parts coming loose due to bumps and shocks, while the Avante-based 4-wheel double wishbone suspension employs plastic lower arms with threaded shaft upper arms that allow swift adjustment of camber. Front uprights are aluminum, and stabilizers are included for the front and rear.

The Vanquish is a legendary buggy from our R/C back catalog. It’s now available again in the form of a re-issue assembly kit renamed the VQS. The kit receives tweaks to the original to bring it into the modern age of R/C fun! We have also saved builders some work too, with a pre-cut and pre-painted body!
