Tamiya RC Cars Recreate Street and Race Classics In Miniature
One of the coolest automotive sub-hobbies has to be messing around with RC cars. All the things that attract us to full-size machines are there, only in miniature—exquisite engineering, speed, the ability to endlessly tune and tinker, and thanks to Tamiya’s dedication to the classics, style too.
Bodies accurately recalling classic Minis, various Datsuns, Porsches, and Abarth-tuned Fiats, Lancia Stratoses and Delta Integrales, vintage BMWs of all shapes—even Unimogs are represented by a wide selection of Lexan kits readily available at hobby shops and through countless online sources.
When mounted atop a line of chassis ranging from entry level to pro-am, there’s a sweet spot for all experience levels and budgets, and with an extensive list of performance upgrades available for even the least inexpensive kits, they’ll easily hold your interest long after the initial break-in period. Regardless of your favorite motorsport flavor, Tamiya has you covered with RWD, AWD, and even FWD kits tuned for everything from endurance, to rally, Formula 1, and touring car classes.
