The Wild One was originally released in 1985. 2012 marked the re-released to hobbyists, enthusiasts and collectorswho missed the kit the first time around.

Carson Radio, Servo, Battery and Charger available 69.99

So many of us who became addicted to this hobby in the 80’s, did so because of a Tamiya vehicle. The Tamiya Wild One was sold as a kit. For you young ones, that means you had to assemble the bags of parts and hardware before you could drive the buggy. That, however, was always one of the best parts of a Tamiya vehicle. Their instructions were easy to follow, making the build nearly as fun as actually driving the final car. Previous Wild One owners can now relive that moment when they opened the box that featured some of the industry’s best product artwork.Break out your allen wrenches and Phillips screwdriver because the Wild One is back!

The Wild One is a kit. The parts are allgrouped and marked for easy assembly,guided by Tamiya’s well-illustrated manual.Itcan be completed in a weekend if thisis your first kit. One who has built models before can finish it on Saturday and drive it Sunday. The kit uses mostly Phillips headscrews and goes together rather easily.

The Wild One uses a tub style chassis, which was common with Tamiya vehicles. It keeps all the inner workings covered and protected from dirt and debris. The battery is installed from the bottom andis held in place with a carbon fiber plate and small body clip. The receiver and speed control are held in place with servo tape. The large front bumper has enough flex in it to prevent damage for collisions with stationary objects or other RC vehicles.

The silver can 540 was included in many of Tamiya’s kits in the 80’s and still is today. It is a reliable motor that has provided and will provide many battery packs of fun. The plastic cage with its aluminum cross braces protects the rear end during any mishaps.

Trailing arm suspension is used front and rear. The upper front shock mounts are made from aluminum and the rear shocks mount to the plastic cage. The shocks feature aluminum bodies. While the frontshocks are muck like what we are used to, the rear is a bit different inthat the spring is contained below the shock body. The bodies are filled with oil for damping.

A nice thing about these smaller, lightweight cars is that a standard servo works well for steering.

A Tamiya speed control is included this time around. The original used a wiper type mechanical controller that was not all that efficient and had to use a ceramic cooling element. The new ESC makes for a much tidier installation.

The rear knobbly tires and front ribbed tires are firm rubber andhave no foams. No glue is needed when the buggy is run in its stock form. Bearings are included for the wheels.

They were cool then and they are cool now. The aluminum oil-filled shocks provide a much improved ride over the friction shocks of some of Tamiya’s other kits.

The driveline consist of dogbones from the tranny to the wheels.The original used hex style bones that had a tendency to wear out so this is a necessary upgrade. Rubber boots protect the bones and just look cool.

A Lexan body set requires trimming and painting. It consists of amain body and a roof panel. Decals provided in the box make it as simple painting the panels a single color. Using black would produce the box art body. The driver needs painting also. This piece could require more effort. The driver’s helmet/head is molded in ABS plastic. Helmet decals are also included. The face requires paint if you want any detail on it.
