Tamiya Trucks are fantastic reproductions of the real thing- RC Trucks are a favorite with many professional truckers who like to replicate their real life truck into a /14th scale RC Truck- The Tamiya Trucks are in kit form and need to be built which also involves installing the electrics to make them run- A Radio Controlled Truck looks amazing when it is running with full lights, sound and they also have a vibration unit so when you start up your Radio Controlled Truck it actually vibrates like a real truck would!
At RC Model Shop Direct we hold a monthly RC Truck Fest meet where we turn the drift track into a big road way with loading bay and parking area- If you can’t make it to our monthly meet there are many other clubs throughout the country that other likeminded people take their RC Trucks to run-
Tamiya are one of the most detailed models around and have reproduced many of the full scale trucks over the years- There are many aftermarket items you can get for the models with Carson offering a range of lights, tyres and wheels and not forgetting the American bull bars for the American models! They also offer some amazing trailers from low-loaders to oil tankers which also boast super detail to replicate the real thing-
Unlike a normal on road RC model which use a two channel radio (one for steering and one for drive)- The Tamiya truck has a three speed gearbox and requires a servo to operate it- Due to this you need a six channel radio to make the model run correctly- With the six channel you can also operate all the lights and start up from your transmitter (controller)-
