Tamiya VW Type 2 (T1) Flower Power M-05
|A True Legend
This R/C model assembly kit creates a special flower power version of the "23-window" type of the much-loved first generation (T1) Volkswagen Type 2, known as the Volkswagen Bus to many of its legions of fans, with an accurate polycarbonate body in detailed 1/10 scale. Stickers are included to apply the distinctive, hippy-inspired design motifs on the body, as well as window frames, emblem and more, while masking stickers are there to facilitate an easier paint job. Combined with classic style wheels and tread patterned tires, this stunning body is mounted on the rear-wheel drive M-05 chassis.

The front wheel drive M-05 chassis features a lightweight, narrow, durable, and easy-assembly semi-monocoque resin frame. Gearbox, motor, battery pack, receiver, servo and ESC are positioned for optimum weight distribution and a low center of gravity. Ground-hugging 4-wheel independent double wishbone suspension and the 3-piece steering linkage provide stable high-speed cornering. Plated dish design wheels have tires with realistic tread patterns and inner sponge. In this kit, the chassis is setup with the 239mm L wheelbase.
