This R/C model assembly kit recreates the classic late 1990's Fighter Buggy RX. Recreated faithfully to the original but enhanced in this limited edition release with the addition of a pre-coloured black body, metallic stickers and gold colour plating on the wheels.
Pricing Note: We have priced this kit above, as we do the whole range, assuming that you will not require the standard ESC unit. If you would like the kit with the ESC included, simply add the TBLE02S ESC from the drop down below - which adds £15 to the total. Note also, Tamiya kits do not come shrink wrapped in the UK or Japan. The box sticker will state "ESC Included" whether you order it with or without this unit.
This exciting shaft-driven 4WD R/C buggy assembly kit creates the Plasma Edge II. The Limited-Edition version seen here comes with Iridescent Purple/Green colour pre-painted finish - so while you need to build the kit, the tricky painting has been done for you. The body sit on top of the TT-02B, which is a dedicated off-road buggy chassis that offers hassle-free assembly and maintenance, as well as superb controllability. The TT-02B uses the TT-02 as its base, adding longer suspension arms, CVA shock units, and buggy bumpers to give it great off-road performance. Of course, it retains the TT-02's excellent drivability and ease of assembly and maintenance, while motor cooling ducts and receiver case add to the model's durability.
- Torque-tuned motor is included!
- The TT-02B Chassis is the buggy evolution of Tamiya's popular 4WD entry level unit, the TT-02 Chassis.
- Bathtub-type frame has longitudinal battery and R/C mechanism placed flat for low center of gravity.
- 4-wheel double wishbone suspension features long arms and white color CVA shock units, and is combined with high-grip square spike tires to give excellent traction.
- Features black star-dish wheels.
- Includes stickers to decorate the body, plus masking stickers for use when painting.
- Front and rear gearboxes have differentials to ensure smooth cornering.
Bearing Upgrade: These make the car run more smoothly and are easily installed during assembly. If there is no option for these shown, then the kit already includes the bearing upgrade as standard. These are entirely optional.
Radio System: There is a choice of a TWIN STICK (Traditional) radio or a Steering Wheel (Modern) radios. All operate on 2.4Ghz and use the new Crystal-Free technology, so you can run multiple cars at the same time without any interference. All radios chosen from this page will include a steering servo as these are not included in the kit itself.
ESC: This is the connection between the radio system and the motor. You have several choices. The standard Tamiya unit (TBLE02S) suits many situations but is not water proof. Where a model number is shown (e.g. 20 or 15) that is the motor capacity of the unit - the lower the number, the more powerful a motor you can nstall later. All work with the motor in the kit.
Battery: The higher the number, the longer the run time.
Charger: Charge time is proportional to the battery you choose. Some examples - for the 1800 battery (others will take longer) - Overnight charger takes around 6 hours, Mid Speed around 2 to 3 hours, Ansmann 3 amp around 40 minutes and Hyper Delta around 30 minutes (if in the car, takes around an hour in the house).
