By the 1980s, many Japanese toy companies had entered the R/C market, and the old tin toy manufacturer Yonezawa was no exception. After the success of their Land Dash and Missiler buggies in 1984, they continued to make a variety of R/C vehicles. While no others were 540-motor powered, some – like the Wolfhunter 4WD – offered typically interesting Japanese solutions to the challenge of making good quality ready-to-run R/C buggies. The Wolfhunter is a shaft-driven 4WD buggy featuring realistic looks, oval block tyres, and good response. Featuring two gear speeds and quality materials throughout, the Wolfhunter was one of the first ready-to-run 4WD electric buggies on the market.
