The Wild One was one of Tamiya’s mid 1980s buggy kits, notable for it’s beautiful looks and strong scale realism. Tamiya only released a few different models each year in the 1980s (unlike today), and the Wild One is now considered one of their off road classics. Featuring fully independent suspension, with oil filled dampers, and a couple of ball bearings in the kit, this is one of the most realistic R/C buggies ever produced – yet also fast, with it’s 540 motor. 1985 was one of Tamiya’s very best years in R/C design, and the Wild One is an important entry in Tamiya history, representing a successful blend of performance and scale-like appearance.
