Tamiya 58418 Boomerang 4WD 2008 RC 1/10 Off Road Kit – Metro Hobbies


The Boomerang, originally released in 1986, is now available as a 1/10 scale re-release assembly RC kit. It features a wedge-shape form, large-sized rear wing, and ball bearings installed in the gearboxes. The newly designed polycarbonate chassis cover ensures easy maintenance and prevents dirt and debris from entering.

The Boomerang inherits the chassis and shaft driven 4WD power train of the famous Hotshot. The 3-piece bathtub chassis, consisting of a centre frame with front and rear gearboxes, ensures easy maintenance. It has a mono-shock oil shock and a stabiliser in the front, and CVA long oil shocks in the rear. A newly included polycarbonate chassis cover protects the chassis from dirt and debris. It can be upgraded with a variety of Option Parts such as Item 53791 DF-02 Assembly Universal Shaft and Item 53926 DF-03 Aluminium shock Set.
