The Taiyo Aero Grabber 4WD is one of Taiyo’s early off road buggies, and was first released in 1988. It’s sleek design, large high quality tyres, and compact chassis make it a highly entertaining off-road machine – capable of speeds up to 19Km/H, and a “turbo” function on the transmitter. The buggy is also adorned with a range of real-world sponsor logos, and is really a pleasure to drive – typical of the high quality and high-performance R/C buggies that Taiyo was manufacturing in Japan during the mid-late 1980s.
