The Tamiya Sand Scorcher was reintroduced to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the release of the original Sand Scorcher with an improved re-release of the radio control car model.

The new improvements include more fine tuned parts.
Just as the original, the updated Sand Scorcher features ribbed front tires and paddle rear tires.
Since the Sand Scorcher and the Buggy Champ use the same chassis, the spare parts are interchangeable.

    Baja bug

    Wonderful kit by tamiya. I had one of these the first time round and this is such a vast improvement. More detail, better speed control and proper bearings this time just to name a few. All with wonderful service from Wonderland models

    Scorching model from tamiya

    Once again an excellent kit from tamiya my only moan is the bumper on the front is not included in the kit but other than that a great kit and with a brushless esc, so if you wished to upgrade to a brushless motor another expense saved. Also excellent service one again from wonderland models, quick delivery and well packed.

    Sand Scorcher remake

    I bought one of these in the early 1980's when you could get a Baja buggy body instead of the Beetle one. Was very impressed with it then but seeing this with the dampers pre-built will be a blessing for most people. If this is as good as the 80's model, there will be a lot of happy people out there.

    A great kit at a great price

    Wonderland Models had this at by far the best price that I could find, other places were like £20 more expensive (or more). Delivery was quick and well packaged, couldn't ask for more.

    Superb Scorcher

    This was my third Tamiya purchase and by far the best yet. A pleasure to build, paint and play with. I am very glad to have managed to get hold of one.

    This is an excellent model, providing sufficient complexity to be a little challenging, but not enough to put you off. Most of the running gear , engine and drive shafts are metal which will make the completed R/C model very robust.
