Tamiya BBX 1/10-Scale 2WD Buggy
Item #58719 — 1/10 BBX (BB-01)

OVERVIEW

Tamiya’s designers have taken inspiration from its back catalog of iconic 2WD off-road buggies to bring fans of radio control the all-new BBX. This 1/10 2WD off-road buggy features a combination of classic design and modern performance. Its brand-new chassis, reminiscent of 1980’s sand rail dune buggies, is a hybrid monocoque-roll cage and employs rear trailing arm suspension inspired by full-size UTV’s. The new body is designed by famed Japanese artist Atsushi Arino and utilizes a classic 1980’s inspired livery with retro wheels and tires to match.

KEY FEATURES

  • 1/10 assembly kit.
  • The classically designed 0.7mm thick polycarbonate body is split into three sections to recreate the tapered lower shape of an actual dune buggy.
  • The newly designed 2WD chassis is based on the one-piece monocoque frame and roll cage to allow the use of realistic-looking bodies.
  • The BB-01 chassis employs new front double wishbone suspension with A-shaped arms and rear trailing arm suspension with long trailing arms which are inspired by UTVs and give impressive performance.
  • The 2WD chassis with rear positioned motor is inspired by the same layout of the actual vehicles of the era and allows for great rear traction.
  • The four-wheel double wishbone suspension system uses CVA oil front/rear aluminum aeration dampers for impressive performance and gives this buggy a classic look.
  • Transmission uses the TA06 rear oil-filled gear differential which allows the use of many existing Grade-Up parts.
  • Features full ball bearings and universal drive shafts.
  • Rear roll cage can be removed by detaching screws, which ensures ease of maintenance around the motor.
  • New metal-plated bead lock type wheels are paired with new large-diameter tires.
  • Includes driver figure and light cases for extra realism and 5th spare tire mount adapter. (Spare tire may be purchased separately for added realism)
  • Requires 2-channel radio, steering servo, 540 motor, ESC, 7.2-7.4volt battery with compatible charger and Tamiya PS paint to complete.
