History

The Yonezawa Land Dash was the most advanced R/C buggy sold by Yonezawa, a Japanese toy company with a long history dating back to the 1950s. They were famous for making tin robots in the 60s and 70s, but in the 80s they turned their attention to the R/C car craze, of which the Land Dash and the Missiler were their most high performance R/C models. In some markets, the Yonezawa Land Dash was rebranded under the Monogram brand, and sold as the Monogram Lightning.

Powered by an RS-540S motor and coming with a Digital Proportional transmitter, the Land Dash was designed to compete with the popular hobby buggies of the day such as the Tamiya Hornet and others. Unlike others however, it was sold in ready-to-run form, requiring no assembly and with a transmitter already included. This is a fast, and attractive vintage buggy with lots of elements that were typical of the era – realistic off-road buggy looks and sponsor logos, fat tyres, and a large front bumper. The Land Dash is now considered a classic buggy of the mid 1980s.
