The Tandy/Radio Shack Off-Roader is one of the most famous R/C vehicles ever sold at Tandy and Radio Shack stores. Available from 1985 until about 1991, it was a hugely popular R/C model – manufactured by Taiyo in Singapore. It was a custom release of Taiyo’s own “Big Roader” model, which in turn was modeled after the famous real-life (and first ever) monster truck “Big Foot”, from the early 1980s. The Tandy/Radio Shack Off-Roader is well remembered for it’s rugged construction, high quality materials, and versatile 4×4 transmission – allowing it to clamber over most obstacles at a realistic speed. Featuring two speeds, a working differential and large, quality balloon tyres, it was an R/C vehicle ahead of it’s time, offering enormous play potential. Hard to find in mint condition these days, it remains one of the best remembered ready-to-run R/C cars (of any kind) from the 1980s.
