The Fire Dragon was the machine used by the main character of the manga series "Radicon Boy" and was first released as an R/C model back in 1989. Tamiya is now re-releasing this nostalgic 4WD buggy. Featuring a unique body styling and parts for a driver figure, this colourful buggy is a great way for beginners to get started with this hobby and for old-timers to remind themselves of their childhood years.

Durable chassis features motor mounted amidships, which powers all four wheels via a shaft drive system. The simple, yet effective, suspension is made up of upper I-arms and lower H-arms for an efficient double wishbone setup. CVA oil dampers at all four corners help absorb shocks from rough terrain while differential gears in the front and rear gearboxes help put the power to the ground smoothly.
