The Shizuoka Hobby Show, the Japanese most important event for RC fans, has opened its doors. We can finally take an up-close look at the new Lunch Box Mini: the new 1/24th scale model part of the “Comical Wheelie Series” looks super-fun and is perfect for all the nostalgist who are still in love with the classic Lunch Box.
The Lunch Box Mini polycarbonate body is pre-painted and sits on top of the 4WD SW-01 chassis is attached to the body mounts using magnets for quick attachment.
The steering uses 1-piece upper arms for a tight turning circle and the body leans to help suppress tumbles. It can be converted into a 4-wheel steering setup with separately sold Item 54898 SW-01 Upper Arm Connectors.
The Type 370 motor is located right in the center of the SW-01 chassis, in a gear-driven 4WD setup with a gear ratio of 21.875:1. Big, tread patterned tires give superb traction and add to the overall cartoonish look of the Lunchbox Mini. Can be used with standard size servos and R/C equipment despite its compact nature.
• Requires: 2-Channel Radio, standard size servo, 7.2-7.4volt battery pack & compatible charger.
• Compatible with: item 51610 RC T301 Battery Case for use with 4 AA batteries if desired.
