Nothing beats “brand new” when it comes to vintage R/C toys. The Fast Traxx Eliminator is a rare model in the Fast Traxx series, in any condition. A new in box example is the hardest to find. Don’t miss the chance to own one of the very last brand new Taiyo Fast Traxx Eliminators left in the world.

History

The Taiyo Fast Traxx Eliminator was first released in Japan in 1991, following the success of the original Taiyo Fast Traxx in 1990, and is basically the same concept but featuring a stadium pickup truck body. It was sold under both Taiyo and Tyco branding in the USA (but mostly just Taiyo elsewhere), and is a tracked vehicle with twin motors and high speed rubber tracks that can move at up to 21km/h. The huge popularity of Taiyo’s Fast Traxx series is what spawned models like the Fast Traxx Eliminator, Super Fast Traxx and Half Traxx, as this series of colourful “tracked” vehicles proved to be a hit with fans around the world for their high quality construction, go-anywhere ability and high speed.
