Tamiya 57409 Lunch Box MINI SW-01 4WD RC Van 1:24 Scale
Part Number or Barcode: 4950344574094
Stock Level: Good Stock. For further info: Click Here.

This is a compact, maneuverable, and above all super-fun addition to the world of Tamiya wheelie models! It's a familiar face, too, as the legendary Tamiya Lunch Box has been shrunk down to 1/24 scale.
The classic shrunken Lunch Box body sits on top of the 4WD SW-01 chassis. It is capable of 4-wheel steering using separately sold Upper Arm Connectors that not only allows you to steer with all four wheels on the ground, but it also allows the vehicle to steer while doing wheelies!
SWD-01 chassis key features:
- The steering uses 1-piece upper arms for a tight turning circle and the body leans to help suppress tumbles. It can be converted into a 4-wheel steering setup with separately sold Item 54898 SW-01 Upper Arm Connectors.
- The body is attached to the body mounts using magnets for quick attachment.
- The Type 370 motor is located right in the center of the SW-01 chassis, in a gear-driven 4WD setup with a gear ratio of 21.875:1.
- 1/24 scale R/C model assembly kit. Length: 190mm, width: 146mm, height: 140mm.
- The famous Lunch Box body is molded in lightweight and durable polycarbonate and is pre-painted.
- The body leans in the direction in which the model steers, achieving remarkably tight turning circles.
- Responsive 4WD.
- Strut style suspension.
- Can be used with standard size servos and R/C equipment despite its compact nature.
- Big, tread patterned tires give superb traction and add to the overall cartoonish look of the Lunchbox Mini.
- Dish type wheels.
- Compatible with Tamiya LF Battery LF1100-6.6V Racing Pack (M-Size) as a power source OR Carson C608139 7.4v Li-Ion Compact Battery for better performance.
- Aftermarket battery note: Battery pack size must be under 66x36x15mm in size.
- 370-type size motor included.
- Requires: 2-Channel Radio, standard size servo, 7.2-7.4volt battery pack & compatible charger.
- Compatible with: item 51610 RC T301 Battery Case for use with 4 AA batteries if desired.
This car being somewhat different to standard Tamiya cars requires careful selection of components to ensure (1) they are compatible and (2) they fit.  The Tamiya Importers for the UK and Germany have put together a special package which can be added above.  This consists of everything needed to build as follows:  1 x TEU105BK ESC, 1 x Carson 608139 7.2v Li-Ion 1700mah Battery, 1 x Carson 606063 Li-Ion Mains Charger, 1 x Carson 500102 Reflex Wheel Start 2.4Ghz Radio (servo and receiver included).  This lot is both the correct size and compatible with the model - and is offered as a discounted bundle price.
