By the late 1980s, Nikko were releasing some very high quality, capable R/C buggies both at the hobby-grade and ready-to-run levels, and at several scales. The compact “Laser 4WD” buggy was a 1/16 scale model that was sold worldwide, and which was designed for exciting performance with it’s strong motor, 4WD transmission and low profile tyres. Featuring 2 speeds, “turbo” on the transmitter, proper spring suspension, quality materials, and even some real sponsor logos, the Laser 4WD packed some Japanese sophistication into 1/16 scale when it came out. Better than you might think, and the sort of R/C buggy that really makes you realize how fantastic these toys were for the time, relative to the poorer quality vehicle around today.
