This electric R/C assembly kit reproduces the 4WD Toyota Hilux Pick-Up (RN36), which enjoyed wide popularity in the US and Japan during the 1980s and is still adored by many fans today. The model features a ladder frame like the actual vehicle, Type 540 motor, 3-speed transmission, and an abundance of metal parts for a high level of realism. Its live axle suspension features metal axle housings, leaf springs, and oil dampers while a metal front under guard helps the model take on tough off-road conditions. A highly detailed injection-molded body and large 123mm diameter tires also gives the model a stylish, high-lift appearance.
About the Toyota Hilux Pick-Up
The 3rd generation Toyota Hilux Pick-up (30/40 Series) debuted in 1978 and the RN36 model was developed specifically 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 towards the rear to provide sufficient approach/departure angles for superb off-road performance. Front/rear flared fenders and large tires gave the truck a tall, aggressive stance. The RN36 model 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.
