    Grand Hauler Black Edition 1/14 Scale Semi Truck - KIT from Tamiya - TAM56356

    Version Info: This truck is a KIT. Assembly is required. Minimum 4+ channel radio system, ESC, battery, charger and servo will need to be purchased separately.

    This is a special edition of the Grand Hauler. The R/C model assembly kit recreates a massive boxy, customized truck like those seen in North America. The special edition version is a great option for those without the time or confidence to apply a paint job to their kit, as the body, and other key body parts are pre-painted Metallic black (Tamiya Color TS-40). Additionally, a matte coating is applied over the metallic black which provides a cool look as seen in current trends in the automotive scene.

    Tamiya is world-renowned for producing industry-leading RC scale tractor trucks for generations. The Tamiya Grand Hauler Black Edition is powered by a 540 motor and 3-speed transmission, its durable drivetrain spins both rear dually axles supported on a realistic leaf spring and shock suspension. The Grand Hauler Black Edition's metal C-Channel ladder frame keeps the power to the pavement when hauling optional accessories. Your Tamiya truck is backed by Motion RC's world-renowned customer service and technical support. Drive on!
