Get behind the wheel of a classic radio-controlled car from the 80s
If you can remember the radio-controlled cars of the 80s, then you’ll likely recall Tokyo-based brand Tamiya, which was one of biggest brands in this genre.
Following a partnership with the Little Car Company, one of its most popular models, the Tamiya Wild One, has grown in stature from 1/10th scale to 8/10th scale. Named the Wild One Max, buyers can abandon the controls and get behind the wheel of this rear-wheel drive, off road electric buggy.
At approximately 3.5m long and 1.8m wide, the Wild One Max will take up considerably more space than the radio-controlled cars of the past. But just like the original, you get the opportunity to assemble these models at home.
When taking to the driving seat, customers will find an adjustable composite seat with a three-point seatbelt, digital gauges and a racing steering wheel. There are even multiple driving modes including Novice, Eco & Race, which offer different top speeds, throttle mappings and power outputs according to driver skill level.
With a top speed of 48 km per hour and a peak power output of 4kW, it has a single PowerPack onboard with a capacity of 2kWh and a range of up to 40km. Want to go faster or further? Several of the modular PowerPacks can be added to increase the performance and range.
For those who wish to roam on and off the roads, three road legal packs mean adventures can continue beyond the workshop. Parts include brake lights, turn signals, reflectors and rear-view mirrors to make your vehicle road legal. wildonemax.com
