Tamiya Top Force 2017 4WD

A Re-Re-Issue With One Minor Change

The Top Force is back in 2017! This 4wd 1/10th scale buggy was originally introduced in 1991 to celebrate Tamiya's 100th rc car. Designed as a racer that doubled as a sporty basher, the Top Force featured a very low center of gravity and a very aerodynamic body. The kit was released again in 2005, and once more in 2017, now with updated tread design on the tires.

The Top Force 2017 comes with ball-diffs both front and rear, and metal bearings throughout. A fiberglass-reinforced plastic chassis and shock towers provide accurate handling. It's available for $193.99 and ships from Tower Hobbies in mid July.

  • Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) double-deck chassis.
  • Four-wheel shaft drive.
  • 540-size motor with rear transverse mount.
  • Polystyrene resin body with rear wing, marking decals and driver figure.

It's really hard to leave the LHS without a new Tamiya in hand. I love building them as much as I love driving them. The kits are almost always affordable and come with motors and / or ESCs and most importantly, they are all fun to drive!
