This is a special edition of the Grand Hauler. The RC model assembly kit recreates a massive boxy, customized truck like those seen in North America. The special edition version is a great option for those without the time or confidence to apply a paint job to their kit, as the body, and other key body parts are pre-painted Metallic black (Tamiya Color TS-40). Additionally, a matte coating is applied over the metallic black which provides a cool look as seen in current trends in the automotive scene.
The model's ladder frame chassis features aluminum side channels with resin cross members and is equipped with a highly realistic suspension utilizing metal leaf springs and friction dampers. A front-mounted motor and 3-speed transmission power the two rear wheel axles, which are fitted with built-in differentials to enable smooth cornering. A 4-channel R/C system and multi-function unit allow you to drive the vehicle and experience realistic lights, sounds and vibrations. (Both sold separately)
Important Radio Information
Please be advised when choosing a radio for your Tamiya Semi, you need to figure out what your final goal will be. Your choice is between an Analog or Digital trimmed 4ch radio.
If you plan on using your semi without an MFU (Multi-Function Unit), you can use either type radio.
If you even think you might use a Tamiya MFU on your semi, please only use an Analog radio.
Digital trim radios "WILL NOT" work with Tamiya MFU units.
Q. How Can I tell if my radio is Analog or digital trim?
Analog - Radio Trims slide from one end to the other
Digital - Radio Trims are only switches and click in either direction, No Sliding
