Regarding The Hornet:

The revolutionary 1984 2WD off-road buggy is back and more fun than ever before!
The Hornet stands as one of Tamiya's most popular R/C cars ever released, helping launch a 2WD R/C buggy boom worldwide.
Featuring excellent performance on both dirt and on-road tracks, this awesome buggy can take on any type of terrain.
Just like the original, this re-release features an easy to assemble chassis and drivetrain consisting of a durable but lightweight ABS resin bathtub frame, diff gear loaded sealed gearbox, oil filled rear dampers, powerful RS 540 motor and high performance suspension system.
