description
One of Tamiya's more popular buggies akin the Frog, the sharp-looking Fox introduced many people to offroad racing. Tamiya's 'Hotshot' designer must have dreamt this 2WD buggy up too, the similarities in design most evident. At least here the Fox actually gets the gold wheels as seen on the box pic! Worst of all (imho) is having all RC gear locked up in a sealed chassis marinating in accumulated moisture; Fox has a unique steering servosaver & fiddly speed control too, but the rest is pretty robust. Many Foxes were relegated to the 'Rent Me' rack at local offroad tracks, so they pretty tough overall. Definitely one for the nostalgia list.
