Turbo Panther mini 4WD

Recommended Posts

Thought you all might find this interesting. It's a fun little car to mess around with, and it still runs! Pretty detailed with a full interior and driver figure too. We never had a track, so my brother and I would just send it back and forth between us. (we used 2 batteries with a fake/dummy third cell so it was slower/easier to catch!)

Super-cool little car and it looks like new to boot!

Very cool. I wonder if you could convert to a real RC car, but it's probably a collectors' item.

It's packaged pretty tightly already... not much room for electronics unless I could fit something in place of the third cell. But converting the fixed front axle to steering would be quite the challenge!

I know that "Tamiya" mini 4WD has a large following, but I'm not sure what significance a Nikko would have for that crowd? But surely it's at least a little rare in general, so I won't be cutting it up anytime soon B)
