Very rare and very cool 1:10 buggy.

I just had to have one of these when I got the chance to buy it from Paul Grove in the UK.

I wanted a 'caged' car in my collection. And I do like 4WD cars - they are so much more over engineered from the 80s vs the 2WD cars. This one even has 4 wheel drive steering like the Kyosho Progress.

Introduced by Mugen circa 1985, the Four Wheel Drive, Four Wheel Steer Bulldog AWDS buggy, is belt driven, on a fabricated alloy plate and plastic chassis, with three ball differentials, front and rear mono air dampers, anti roll bars, dogbone drive-shafts and came with a roll cage, mechanical speed controller and 540 motor.

I've never seen mono AIR dampers on any car before. And they are HUUUUUGE!

I only need to do a light refurb on this one and paint the driver figure.

Thx for looking and comments are always welcome!

Thx guys! Well - to explain in a simple way: I think there is a reason why we don't see air suspension on cars today...
