To celebrate the beginning of the 2022 in style Tamiya is ready to release the 1990 Land Rover Defender 90 (on the CC-02 chassis with a polycarbonate body and a 540 Type brushed motor): a legendary Land Rover off-road car with roots that go back to 1948. Based on differences in wheelbases, this car has three types – the Defender 90/110/130. This replica depicts a 3-door model with 93-inch wheelbase.
Designed for a wide range of off-road scenes including rocky terrain, the CC-02 chassis’ ladder frame is inspired by full-size vehicles and is the base for its superior durability. A 4WD setup employs the motor longitudinally behind the front axle with separated gearbox and transfer case, and propeller shafts transmitting power to the differential gears front and rear. Four-link rigid suspension is employed front and rear, with CVA oil dampers for all-encompassing control, even on tricky rock sections. This model comes with black wheels and grippy block pattern tires.
Length: 429mm, width: 200mm, height: 215mm, wheelbase (short): 242mm (CC-02 chassis).
