The new Wild Willy radio control kit has an all new chassis and larger tires allowing it to tread over rough terrain.

    Indestructible (almost)

    Bought this 20 years ago, for myself. Fitted the ballrace bearings and I kid you not, son using it now still going strong. Been through 2 body shells but with spares still easily available, these models go on for ever. Don't bother with cheap nonsense RC trucks, invest in something that you can repair. Try the race tuned motor as well for extra speed!

    Loads of fun...

    I had a Wild Willy years ago and loved it, and I have to say this is even better, Tamiya now include an ESC which gives you loads more control, the improved wheelie bar and wider wheel base makes it more stable. Great to build and just great fun to drive, pop wheelies, and bash around. And it looks ace too.
