The 1/10 Scale RC Toyota Land Cruiser 40 4×4 Off Road Machine by Tamiya is no-joke-ready-to-rock

The new RC Toyota Land Cruiser 40 by popular Japanese radio-controlled car maker Tamiya is the ultimate answer to all those R/C fans tinkering and modifying their mini machines, converting them into big-wheeled rock climbers. This Land Cruiser boasts a true-to-scale body replica made from lightweight polycarbonate mounted on an all-new CR-01 chassis. We’re not sure what that means exactly, but if this Land Cruiser performs as awesome as it looks, we’re game.
