Limited edition release of the Isuzu with a pre-finished Black Metallic body. Otherwise as per the standard kit description below.
The Isuzu Mu Type X was sold in the UK with a different grille and plastic bumper treatment as the Vauxhall Frontera Sport - we have included a picture of the Frontera above so that you can see what changes would need to be made during the painting process.
The Isuzu mu Type X, which originally appeared back in November 1995 is once again available as a Limited-Edition R/C assembly kit. With a 2m33cm wheelbase, the 2-seater mu was based around a tough off-road chassis that employed a ladder frame and rigid rear suspension. The actual car was also rebadged and sold in other countries with names such as the Frontera Sport, Amigo and Rodeo Sport. Tamiya’s R/C kit employs a highly realistic injection molded body and it is mounted on the reliable and easy to maintain CC-01 chassis, making it a joy to drive both on and off-road!
The All-Terrain CC-01 Chassis
The CC-01's highly reliable and efficient full-time 4WD system features a longitudinally-positioned motor, which transmits power to the front wheels via the gearbox and to the rear wheels via propeller shaft. Front and rear differentials enable smooth cornering, and for even greater off-road performance on rough terrain, the rear differential may be locked during assembly. The chassis suspension employs double-wishbone front upper single links and lower H-shaped arms plus rear rigid suspension. With 4 CVA oil dampers in total fitted to the front and rear, there's enough cushion to take on even the roughest surfaces.
Options ExplainedBearing 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).
