The Taiyo Racing Pick-Up 4WD was a dynamic, yet highly realistic off-road pickup truck based on the real Nissan factory baja trucks that raced in the USA throughout the 1980s, and which carried the famous red, white and blue Nissan paint scheme. One of the most gorgeous models in Taiyo’s mid-late 1980s R/C range, it features twin motors, 2 speeds, suspension, block pattern tyres and a top speed of 25km/h. It is also adorned with many real sponsor logos. Impossible to find these days, it has become one of the most highly sought-after models ever made by Taiyo.
