The Tandy/Radio Shack Big Panther was released in 1990, and was custom manufactured for Tandy/Radio Shack, by Nikko. Based on the 4WD platform of Nikko’s Super Fox buggy of the mid-80s, this was one of the premium models in Tandy/Radio Shack’s early 1990s line-up. With a working differential, 2-speed transmission, and 4WD via twin driveshafts, it looked very much like a 1980s-style R/C buggy, and was one of the last high-quality Nikko models sold under Tandy/Radio Shack branding.
