More Information

Debuting in 1984, the RC hornet – the car that produced the boom of 2WD off road cars – has returned in it’s original form. Utilizing the light weight design of the original model, this RC assembly kit does not care where it runs – either on road or off road.

Total length 400mm, total height 150mm, width 230mm, built weight 874g.

Made from high grade plastic in all components from the suspension arm to the gear box, bath tub chassis etc and being lightweight, it maximises body rigidity giving a strong model.

Suspension on the front is a swing axle independent system damped by coil springs, the rolling rigid rear axle is supported with oil damper units to absorb heavier bumps. The design keeps sand out of the gearbox and the direct vent system on the gearbox allows air to pass in and out but shuts out the invasion of the small stones which could enter when driving off road. Inside is a differential gear which allows smooth cornering.

Front wheels feature the classic grooved tyre and the rear wheels have superior traction with high grip spiked tyres installed. As for the body, it’s polycarbonate which is strong enough to survive light shocks.

Chassis construction – the bumper is made of a special resin. Front suspension is of swing axle independent type supported by friction dampers. Front grooved tyre is hollow. Wheels are 3 piece type with fitted bearings at the front and adjustable via ball adjuster steering tracking position. The ABS resin chassis is of the bathtub type which has high strength as is the side bumper.
