TGM01 Mad Bison
Model Number: 44025
Four wheel Independent double wishbone
Released 30/11/1999 the Mad Bison was a departure for Tamiya and perhaps showed the way that the company would go with it's future range of off road trucks. They took a TG-10 chassis and changed it considerably to make the Mad Bison and called it the TGM-01 chassis. A new more powerful FS-15LT engine was fitted, wider arms, different gear ratio, different chassis plate and an undercowl were fitted. The TM-5 muffler is also peculiar to this model only. The body was used on a few different kits including the Wild Dagger and Double Blaze with the tyres first being used on the Monster Beetle. Nowadays the hardest part to find are the decal set having long been discontinued. Not a popular kit when produced there doesn't seem to be many still in existence with only 20 or so listed on the site.
