Fun RC Car With 5 Options Installed – Tamiya Comical Hotshot Buggy Kit video review


We have another fun RC Car from Tamiya for you to check out, it’s the Comical Hotshot. This is a cool addition to Tamiya’s comical RC car line-up that plays off of some memorable vintage cars. This fun version of the Hotshot body fits on top of the GF-01 CB platform which we reviewed before as the Comical Avante. So rather than gear up for a full review of a car we’ve seen, Greg decided to throw a twist into this review and bolt on five option parts available for the car. He sifted though the Tamiya website to find what he thought were 5 worhty options for you to see. Were his picks good? Or were they duds? Let us know what you would have chose if you were building this RC yourself!
