Tamiya 58737 Hotshot II RC Car Kit - COMPLETE DEAL BUNDLE
Part Number or Barcode: 4950344587377
Stock Level: In Stock. For further info: Click Here.

Tamiya welcomes a re-released and updated version of the 4WD buggy Hotshot II, the original of which was first released in 1987, following Tamiya’s first 4WD buggy Item 58047 Hotshot released in 1985 and Item 58054  Supershot released in 1986.
 
The Hotshot II was a lightweight design thanks to its use of plastic parts.
 
- This is a 1/10 scale R/C model assembly kit. Length: 390mm, width: 235mm, height: 160mm.
-  The shaft-driven 4WD gives speed and stability off road, and through corners.
- The 4-wheel independent double wishbone suspension employs CVA oil dampers (II) (one for front and two for rear) with a front stabilizer to help get the most out of the 4-wheel drive.
- Dynamic body and rear wing are lightweight polycarbonate (0.7mm thick), and use a colour scheme featuring orange lines on a black base. Polycarbonate body is pre-cut and pre-painted in black.
- Gearboxes are sealed to keep out dirt and sand, and contain differentials for smooth cornering.
- Sections such as ABS monocoque frame and suspension arms feature reinforced plastic for high durability.
- Semi-pneumatic oval block / pin spike hybrid tires are paired with large-diameter one-piece nylon wheel.
- Includes updated stickers
- Includes 540 motor

Options Explained

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 Tamiya Hobbywing unit which will take much more powerful motors, or the Carson Dragster (from Tamiya Germany) which will take many upgrades still, is waterproof and a very reliable unit. The Hobbywing unit has a very good reputation with modellers and has a higher capacity allowing faster motors to be used at a later date. Both units feature electronic brakes. The Tamiya Hobbywing ESC is included in the price, the Carson 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 Mistral 5 Amp Charger from 25 minutes depending on the battery, and the Etronix Fast Charger somewhere in-between. The basic USB charger is included in the price.

If you would like more options, would like to choose a package without one of the above components, or wish to purchase the car kit on it's own, please search our site for the CUSTOM option of this kit - easily found by searching for the kit name or number followed by CUSTOM.
