Upcoming Tamiya 58672 1/14 RC Monster Beetle Trail GF-01TR

58672 1/14 R/C Monster Beetle Trail (GF-01TR)

The classic Tamiya Monster Beetle is an iconic R/C kit. This version takes the classic body, shrinks it to a smaller scale, and mounts it on a variant GF-01 chassis called the GF-01TR!
The GF-01TR fits the gear-driven GF-01 chassis with reduction gears (also known as portal axles). This modification allows the hobbyist to better transverse trail terrain as it lifts the bottom of the chassis to better clear obstacles that could high center the vehicle and render it stuck.

    YES! I had a feeling a GF-01tr would be out soon, but this far exceeds my expectations! Tamiya, are you reading this? Use this body shell again on the WR-02CB for a Comical Sand Scorcher!

    Monster beetle trail. It’s a dyna head minus 2 of everything and they want the same money for it. I don’t think so.

    We can’t account Tamiya HQ for dealers giving different offers and discounts, can we?
