R/C fans have long been modifying their machines into rock crawlers. Tamiya has followed this growing segment with interest and we are now proud to present to you the fruits of our research. This new crawler features a Mercedes-Benz Unimog 406 body made from lightweight polycarbonate mounted on the CR-01 chassis and is literally ready to rock.
CR-01 dedicated crawler chassis features heavy-duty ladder frame with strong yet lightweight pressed aluminum channels and resin cross members. The space saved by mounting a compact planetary gearbox enables the battery to be located lower on the chassis for optimum center of gravity.
4-link coil spring suspension provides the flexibility needed to conquer difficult rocky terrain. Inboard dampers are connected to suspension via linkages, which are then connected via stabilizer torsion bar to provide sure-footed balance.
