【 Relive The Fun! 】  The 2WD R/C off-road car Holiday Buggy made its debut in 1980 and attracted many R/C fans due to its sprightly handling characteristics. Now, Tamiya is proud to release the updated Holiday Buggy (2010), which comes mounted on the proven DT-02 chassis. It features a 4-wheel double wishbone suspension, and its simple, durable construction makes for easy assembly. The durable soft resin body features a pre-painted driver figure wearing a cowboy hat for enhanced realism.

    Did I not tell ya’ll that this kit will be a great entry level 2WD buggy? 🙂

    Oh, and I see that the front damper is upside down for the 2010 HB to sit on the DT-02 chassis. My 20:20 vision is a force to reckon with. 😉

    Best Regards

    are the dogbones plastic or metal dogbones? seems like plastic…
    plastic ones will break easily.
    so disappointing.

    The standard DT-02 (Super Fighter G) has the same and if they don’t “break” (usually wear is a problem with plastic) with its RS-540S the chances that they will break with the RS-380S are very low 😉 Actually even most Tamiya TT01 have plastic dogbones and work fine. And for hopping up and using hot motors you can still add the ones from the higher spec DT-02 models. People should slowly get away from the old prejudice metal=robust & plastic=weak, everything is just a matter of dimensioning and materials, even sport cars like the Corvette have a “plastic” leaf spring.
