Off-Road RC Icon Goes Trailing! Tamiya RC Monster Beetle Trail GF-01TR video review by RC Driver



Tamiya continues to develop new and fun RC variants of its existing chassis’. A new addition to their vast RC line-up is the Tamiya RC Monster Beetle Trail GF-01TR. This fun looking RC is already easily recognizable with its iconic Monster Beetle body, just now in 1/14 scale. Under the body is the GF-01 chassis, which is known for wheelies, but the drivetrain has been altered with the addition of portal axle hubs both front and rear. This gives the truck a little more ground clearance while gearing it down. Tamiya includes a Torque Tuned motor and ESC with this fill build kit too. In this video, we highlight what sets the kit apart from others in the Tamiya selection for Tamiya fans and of course show you it in action as well.
