The original was released in 1991. This re-release has certainly made it better, more durable to accept brushless motors and LiPo batteries. I enjoyed building the Super Astute, it's an easy old school build, very Tamiya with lots of heavy metal bushings in the suspension. Similar in layout to a modern rear motor buggy, being simple yet complicated at the same time. Luv it!!!
