This special LIMITED EDITION kit takes the standard Heavy Dump Truck and gives it a new meaner look! The livery design concept is based upon the heavy metal style seen in American rock band culture. The body parts are molded in black, with metal-plated chassis parts and new sticker designs.
This special version depicts a dump truck modeled upon those which do the heavy work in locations like quarries and large-scale construction sites. The body is mounted on the popular gear-driven GF-01 chassis
The GF-01 chassis plays off the successful and fun line-up of RC kits such as the Wild Willy 2, Volkswagen Type 2 and the Farm King Wheelie. Whereas those kits featured a 2WD and easy to wheelie platform, the new GF-01 is a 4WD incarnation with the motor directly placed in the centre in order to drive the gears in the front and rear gearboxes.
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) radio. Both radios operate on 2.4Ghz and use the new Crystal-Free technology, so you can run multiple cars at the same time without any interference. The steering wheel radio is included in the price, a traditional twin stick radio just a few pounds more.
ESC: This is the connection between the radio system and the motor. You have two choices - the standard Tamiya unit (TBLE02S) or the Mtroniks Auto Sport Tuned 20 ESC. The Mtroniks unit is waterproof and allows slightly more powerful motors. The Tamiya unit allows upgrade to Tamiya's own "brushless" motors later but isn't waterproof. Tamiya's unit goes faster in reverse. Both units feature electronic brakes. The Tamiya ESC is included in the price, the waterproof one is just a few pounds more.
Battery: The higher the number, the longer the run time. The 1800 battery is included in the price.
Charger: You can choose to upgrade the charger - the mini peak (auto cut off) charger will take 2 to 3 hours depending on the battery, the 3 amp charger between 40 minutes and 90 minutes, and the 2 amp charger somewhere in-between. The overnight charger is included in the price.
