Taiyo Fast Traxx

Scale: 1/14
Type: Ready To Run
Year of release: 1990
Condition: NIB New In Box. Mint.

Description

This is a brand new in box, original Taiyo Fast Traxx. But it’s the somewhat harder to find Pink & Black edition. It is identical to the more common yellow ones and orange ones, apart from the colour. But it’s a very rare chance to add this colour of original Fast Traxx to your vintage R/C collection, and even rarer because this would be one of the very few mint in box examples in this colour that I have come across.

This one is absolutely mint in box. Complete with box, transmitter, aerial and manual and leaflet. You will not find better. The box is truly superb as well – a clear 9 out of 10. Everything is complete. This car takes the 9.6v Battery Pack, or can be run on 8 x AA batteries (a special optional battery tray is included so you can power it either way – each method delivers the exact same voltage and power of course)

Truly a showpiece for your vintage RC collection, and a must have if you are a Fast Traxx fan in particular. Please see the photos to understand the condition. Feel free to contact me to find out more.

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.
