Hiroshima Carp and Tamiya of Mini 4WD are dream collaborations!
A special kit based on the mini 4WD version of “Boomerang”, a famous car that built one era in the 1980’s RC car boom, “Boomerang RS” (released in 2005).
The aerodynamic form where the body of the wedge shape is directly connected to the large rear wing is characteristic.
The chassis adopts the popular “VS” type currently in the mini 4WD race scene, and it is possible to make quick cornering making use of light weight & short wheelbase.
