Model Number: 58087
Shaft Driven 4WD, front and rear geardiffs
Four wheel independent double wishbone, coilover oilfilled shocks

This model features an effective four wheel drive, that has only been shaded by the flimsy propeller shaft between the front and the rear axle. A part that is easy to upgrade with an aftermarket part.
The Manta Ray appeared to be also the forefather of the TA01/TA02 Touring and Rally Car Series. In one of the R/C-Handbooks of 1991 it appeared alone, in the other together with the Toyota Celica GT Four Rally (#58096). All in all it grew to a large family with many different members, but the family-likeness was always obvious. (Description by Urban Warrior)
