This rip-roaring R/C model assembly kit recreates the Toyota Hilux, a pick-up truck which has enjoyed enduring popularity in the U.S., Japan and beyond. The model employs a ladder frame like that on the actual car, and is powered by a 3-speed transmission that offers 4WD (1st gear) and 2WD (2nd and 3rd gears) and allows gear changing while running. The realism doesn't stop there, with the sturdy suspension featuring metal axle housings, leaf springs and shackles, while the rear setup is fitted with a radius rod. A metal front under guard helps the model take on tough off-road conditions. The detailed and durable injection-molded body with roll bar is married to metal-plated wheels on 123mm diameter tires to give the model a stylish, high-lift appearance.
About the Toyota TruckThe Toyota Hilux has enjoyed sustained popularity in Japan and across the world since the first model's debut in 1968. The 3rd generation 30/40 Series appeared in 1978, with the RN36 model developed for export markets. It featured a sporty, lightweight body and was powered by a 98hp 1,968cc 4-cylinder gasoline engine. Furthermore, its live axle suspension featured front leaf spring shackles located toward the rear to provide a sufficient approach angle for superb off-road performance. Front/rear flared fenders and large tires gave the truck a tall, aggressive stance, the look complemented by the chunky front grille and dual rounded headlights. The RN36 was mainly exported to North America, but was also later sold in Japan and there are still many fans of this pick-up to this day.
