About this example…

✔ 100% vintage. Made in Japan from 1991 by Taiyo.
✔ 100% working.
✔ Clean condition.
✔ Battery compartments clean.
✔ Transmitter included.

Conclusion: This is a near new in box, original Taiyo Half Traxx. Excellent condition and 100% working, with some scuffs on the underside and a couple of the cockpit area. Mint condition in all other regards, including the decals. The box is in good condition too, with some minor cracking to the box window area, but structurally very good and clean overall. This set is complete and the car accepts either a 9.6v Battery Pack, or can be run on 8 x AA batteries via the included battery tray (each method delivers the same voltage and power). A very clean example of the classic Half Traxx buggy – in the bright neon colours typical of early 1990s R/C cars.

Please see the photos to understand the condition. Feel free to contact me to find out more.


The Taiyo Half Traxx was first released in Japan in 1991, and was another model in Taiyos series of tracked vehicles that began with the original “Fast Traxx”. The Half Traxx is probably the most interesting of the subsequent models – a really unique R/C car because it combines the high-speed rubber track concept with a normal buggy – at the front are two normal wheels allowing you to steer the car properly (something that was quite difficult to do with the original Fast Traxx), while at the rear are high speed rubber tracks. The Half Traxx came in two colours, and was one of many superb R/C toys Taiyo manufactured during their golden years of the late 1980s, and early1990s. With a top speed of 19Km/H, it was another hit for Taiyo – as they explored ever more unusual and creative R/C designs.
