Tribute to Toyota Hilux 4×4

Recommended Posts

This is my take on a tribute to the original Hilux 4x4. It's based on WPL's C24 pickup and MCI's decals. I think it worked out pretty well! Here's hoping that Tamiya will make a true re-release one day.

Awesome . I bought one of these trucks to use the shell on a Tamiya QD project but it was just a bit too narrow . Good scale and a well detailed truck though

Yes, the body detail is the most impressive thing. However, if you want to make it a good runner then you need to invest in quite a few upgrades like motor, driveshafts, axles, and steering links. I ended up paying way more than I wanted too.

I only intended to use the body , but as that wasn't an option I sold the truck . There are a lot of upgrades though , but you might as well buy a 1/10th Tamiya RC for what it costs to upgrade one of these

I took it to the beach yesterday and I was impressed how well it ran in the sand. It just plowed through the stuff in low gear. IMG_20200903_145200_Bokeh.thumb.jpg.929d133cfee713f877b75465dd453913.jpg
