Tamiya Lunch Box Mini XSA Gold Edition video review


We have another Tamiya Lunch Box Mini SW-01 found to feature! This time however it’s an XSA version. This means it’s an Expert Semi-Assembled kit from Tamiya. The iconic little mini size van comes built from the factory with the motor installed, body painted and decaled and the only thing you need to do is drop in your choice of electronics. For some drivers, this is a great opportunity to reuse some old RTR electronics they may have lying around. In this video Greg shows how easy it is to install some spare radio gear he has and then takes the Van out for a drive and remembers just how much fun this Tamiya model is!
