The big kahuna of RC trucks

Take control of your very own big rig - this R/C model assembly kit recreates a massive boxy, customized truck like those seen in North America. The model's ladder frame chassis features aluminum side channels with resin cross members and is equipped with a highly realistic suspension utilizing metal leaf springs and friction dampers. A front-mounted motor and 3-speed transmission power the two rear wheel axles, which are fitted with built-in differentials to enable smooth cornering. A 4-channel R/C system and multi-function unit allow you to drive the vehicle and experience realistic lights, sounds and vibrations.

The Grand Hauler resembles a classic customized american tractor truck. The included 540 motor drives a 3-speed transmission, which has no problem turning the dual rear axles. Leaf spring and shocks keep the axles suspended to the metal C-Channel ladder frame, which keeps the power to the pavement.

The realistic, lengthened body features newly-designed parts depicting front and rear bumpers, front grille, air cleaners and muffler covers. Muffler covers are made from metal tubing. Features a tough ladder frame construction with aluminum side channels and plastic cross members. Realistic drivetrain setup sees the front mounted motor powering twin rear axles. Metal leaf spring dampers with built-in coil springs provide durable suspension. Newly-designed 1/14 scale driver figure included. Coupler is included to enable connection with any currently available Tamiya 1/14 scale trailer.
