The steering servo placement on the Willy Land Cruiser looks rather awkward. Is it a dual motor 4WD?

I'm liking that Comical Landcruiser. Looks to me like a single motor mounted opposite the servo, you can just make out the power cables below.

Looks like it's got a new 4x4 wheelie chassis too!

I think there will be a few more 4x4 Wild Willys about this year :)

Looks like a similar layout to the Mini 4WD chassis - motor in the middle and the rest of the chassis is a gearbox housing

Oh wow mr T redesigned the WR02 gearbox into a WR04. Those wheels leave some room for improvement.

Looks like a JennyMo creation to me! JennyMo, have you been designing for Tamiya on the side ?

This is going to be popular me thinks.

They've got to get rid of the vajra stock somewhere

TamiyaBlog has a few photos of the show. The GF01 is a strange beast on the inside. And it appears the Alpine rally body is getting a reissue, although I don't know what chassis it's on yet.

Thanks to JWeston for the heads up on Facebook.

Separated at birth?

That is kinda spooky!

I like the idea of a 4WD chassis this size... not sure on those wheels though as others have said... but the new little Landcruiser rocks!

I've still got TLT wheels that will bolt right on.

Although I welcome a new 4x4 fun sized chassis I think Tamiya have missed a trick here. It looks a little over engineered and I'm not keen on the steering servo placement, it'll limit other body fitting options. I wonder what steering mechanism they're using and how much slack it'll have?

They could've gotten a similar short 4x4 by simply producing an official shortened TL01 chassis. It would only need 2 new plastic moulds of the chassis halfs and a shorter propshaft. In fact if they made its design similar to the M03/05 series with a front and rear section bolted together, they could've included a spacer section to allow the one chassis to fit multiple wheelbase lengths. Bolt multiple spacers together for longer chassis or a larger spacer that incorporates the battery cross wise like a M or TL chassis. Everything else would be sourced from TL, M or WW2 etc.

The new chassis halfs could also address the lack of gearing options that the TL has or at least offer lower tooth pinion options .

****! I just bought my son his second WR-02 car only this time with a faster motor, and as I was building it I was thinking 'my boy needs to move up to 4WD for all our quarry trips' lol. And low and behold, this arises. Looks like his 3rd car is now found ;)

Although I foresee two being bought as man, these cars are SOOOO much fun.

When I read Toyota Land Cruiser 40 Pickup i instantly thought the GF-01 would be a new scale chassis. That being said, that thing looks awesome! Iv'e been waiting for a TLT-1 sized 4wd.

That looks like only a single pinion option and more of those plastic bushings we all love.

no, two pinion sizes, look at the position of the holes the 20T is set a little lower

Love that FJ40 pickup body, I wonder what the wheelbase will be? Would look great on a scale chassis.
