Look Who's Back!
This re-release version of the Monster Beetle assembly kit features a number of updates while keeping the basic layout of the original off-road car released in 1986. It features a realistic customized Beetle body depicted in tough polystyrene resin, with metal-plated parts supplied in the kit to add the finishing touch for handles and headlight frames. A resin driver figure is the icing on top of the cake!
Tough Space Frame Chassis
This hardy model's rear-wheel drive chassis is based around a durable ABS space frame to withstand all-action off-road driving. 4-wheel independent suspension uses CVA oil dampers, and has double wishbone front and trailing arm rear setups. Superlative cushioning and grip are provided by 130mm-diameter, 58mm-width lug pattern pin spike tires on flashy gold color plated wheels. Efficient and durable universal shafts come with rubber boots.
Ã¢Ëâ¦Front double wishbone and rear trailing arm setups are cushioned by high-performance CVA oil dampers.
Ã¢Ëâ¦Space frame chassis incorporates a dust cover part to ensure that vital R/C equipment is protected.
Ã¢Ëâ¦Universal drive shafts not only boost efficiency; they also minimize the risk of popping out when driving.
