Nothing beats “brand new” when it comes to vintage R/C toys. Don’t miss the chance to own one of the very last brand new Taiyo Fast Traxx vehicles left in the world.

History

The Taiyo Fast Traxx was first released in Japan in 1990, and was a hugely popular model for R/C manufacturer Taiyo. Sold under both the Taiyo and Tyco brand in the USA (but mostly just Taiyo elsewhere), it was one of many superb R/C toys they manufactured during their golden years of the late 1980s, and early1990s. The Fast Traxx revolutionized the concept of “tracked” R/C toys (which had previously been slow tanks and crawlers) as here was a tracked vehicle with twin motors and high speed rubber tracks that could move at up to 21km/h. It’s futuristic looks and bright colours capped off another big success for Taiyo, and led them to produce a series of other high-speed tracked vehicles.
