The Orlandoo OH32A03 1/32 Micro Crawler Kit is an incredibly capable micro size scaler. This cellphone sized kit includes a highly detailed Defender 110 hard plastic body, super soft scale tires, scale axles and five spoke mag wheels. But don't let the micro size fool you! This little crawler is equipped with four-link suspension, friction shocks on all four corners and enough axle articulation to make this tiny truck a true performer.
