The Grasshopper kit was re-released in with a few alterations. It shared most components with the Grasshopper, though it was faster and lighter due to a polycarbonate lexan body. There was also a sequel, the Super Hornet , which was released in and was still being manufactured exclusively for the Australian market until , making it one of the longest running Tamiya kits in history.
Only two of the First were released as a complete kit. This was bundled as model The Sonic Fighter was Both were introduced in the Tamiya yearly catalogue for the first time in the issue shown as complete kits.
For the issue and every issue until they were no longer available in the Thunder Shot was always pictured and shown only in the form. The complete kit was only available for the first production run and were discontinued mid Generally most collectors do not know of the Thunder Shot 'complete kit'. With only a couple left in the world that have not been built, it makes the unbuilt Thunder Shot 'complete kit' one of the most prized models to find for a collector.
Especially seeing only two of the first were ever released in this form with a much bigger box to house the and the ADSPEC controller and Servo. It featured four-wheel independent double-wishbone suspension, a unique mono-spring suspension that used only two springs for the entire four wheels. For its time, the car was light, rugged and upgradeable.
In the years that followed parts of the Hotshot were evolved and reused in several other 4WD buggy models including the Hotshot 2 which was identical aside from simpler direct rear suspension , the Boomerang , the Super Sabre and Tamiya's 10th Anniversary car, the Bigwig. In the Hotshot was re-released. An ESC is included instead of a mechanical speed controller and the body has a metal patch functioning as a heatsink to dissipate heat from the ESC, dog-bone shafts are simplified, hexa bolt and hexa cup universal for connecting front and rear gear boxes are discarded and a simpler dog-bone shaft is adapted.
Because of ESC the original heatsinks on resistors for the mechanical speed controller are no longer necessary, but are included as dummies as they are unique to the Hotshot. Other parts and designs are identical. Unfortunately there remain some minor problems with Hotshot: bump steer, the front wishbones rubbing on the inside of the front wheels and the front spring's attachment point to the lower wishbones being weak.
The steel frame, leaf suspension, front and rear axle and steering were patterned after their full-sized counterparts. It featured a mechanically shiftable 3-speed transmission, using a 3rd radio channel. It would run in 4x4 mode in the lowest gear only. No other RC car or truck of the time offered shiftable mechanical transmission making it highly realistic.
The original Blackfoot monster truck kit and its variations, first released in , was credited with much of the hobby's growth. The Blackfoot Extreme used the chassis from the Wild Dagger. The Blackfoot was a Ford F despite its inspiration being drawn from the real Bigfoot monster truck which was a Ford F The Monster Beetle , now a very collectable model, was nearly identical to the Blackfoot with the addition of gold wheels, oil filled shocks and of course the Volkswagen Beetle bodyshell.
It was a "fun" vehicle, having poor stability and performing long wheelies, and in many respects was therefore similar to real monster trucks of the then future.
This also made it one of the more popular models and it was re-released in with only minor modifications. A metallic gold edition followed in It was also based on a real monster truck, Frankenstein, although the model was mostly black instead of the yellow worn by the real truck.
In early , a metallic chrome edition was released. Each of the front and rear axles were identical, and the motor is attached to the axle itself, making it a very simple design. This simple design allowed the axles to be used in modified vehicles. The Clod Buster spawned an aftermarket industry of its own which catered to those who wished to modify their models to "crawlers", specialized vehicles designed to climb steep and rugged surfaces.
The Clod Buster was also released with a detailed semi truck body, as the Bullhead. The Clod Buster still has a large aftermarket following with many companies designing parts for rock crawling as well as trailer pulling and racing. The main reason for its contunied use is its ultra-strong gearboxes. The Avante , released in Its unique design featured an FRP chassis, aluminium components everywhere and almost limitless adjustments.
Unfortunately it was somewhat over engineered — The car was too heavy, too fragile, dynamically inept, and uncompetitive. Useful for jumps and lower center of gravity. Sponge: Weighs less than rubber type, but has a lower grip characteristic. Reston: Lighter than the regular sponge type and has better gripping. Can be used on all kinds of wheels.
Tire Maintenance Use transparent tape to clean your sponge tires. Clean rubber tires with an eraser and remove the eraser pieces with tape. Wheels Wheels, as well as tires, play an important role in tuning up your car. There are various types with different diameters and structures. Select the right one for your application.
Most types can be used on any Mini 4WD; however, if you have a Fully Cowled Mini 4WD, body modification will be required if you use anything other than the standard, small-diameter type wheels. A lot of designs are available. Pick one that appeals to you.
Normal Wheel vs. One Way Wheel Normal: The speed of the wheels on both sides of a car is the same. This is good for the straights; however, the outer wheel tends to be dragged during cornering and this may slow your car down. One Way: The outer wheel rotates faster than the inner wheel does, which ensures smooth cornering and is preferred for technical courses with many curves.
Rollers Rollers are a must when racing on walled circuits. Altering the rollers will enable you to set up your car for the demands of any track.
Key points in using rollers are their size, location and angle. Make sure you have clearance between the rollers and the body tires. Any contact will slow your car down or even damage parts. Most races have regulations concerning the number and size of rollers. Also the position and size of the rollers can affect your overall length and width of your Mini 4WD. Check the local regulations to make certain that your car is in compliance before you race. For more information visit www.
Add more cans or launch from farther away to make it more challenging. In order to do this, you will need to understand the basic elements of Mini 4WD vehicles. Motor The installation of a tune-up motor is the best way to increase the speed of your car. There are eight kinds of motors available as upgrades. All of them achieve higher performance than the standard motor included in the kit. It is essential to select the right motor since some are designed for top speed, while others are geared more for cornering.
In comparison, between a 4: Take into consideration tire weight, diameter, and width, to determine what type of tire will work best for the course you will be running. Difference in Diameters Small Diameter: Good for a quick start, but not for top speed. Small diameter tires lower the center of gravity and help your car corner better.
Large Diameter: Good for top speed and suitable for long straights. Better shock absorption for bumpy course joints. Difference in Width Wide Tires: Provide stability during cornering.
Good for technical courses with banking curves and ups and downs. Narrow Tires: Good for long straights. Less drag on the motor, which may give the advantage of longer run times. Use a small ratio for high speed courses and a bigger one for technical courses with many curves. Set up the gears according to the track you are racing on.
Difference in Material Rubber: Weighs more than the sponge type, but grips better. Useful for jumps and lower center of gravity. Weighs less than rubber type, but has a lower grip characteristic. Lighter than the regular sponge type and has better gripping. Can be used on all kinds of wheels. Tire Maintenance Use transparent tape to clean your sponge tires.
