The radio controlled Tamiya Fighter Buggy RX Memorial is a high-performance 2WD r/c buggy that is both easy to assemble and easy to afford.
Released in 1996, this buggy was first built as the Rookie Rabbit, which was virtually the same as the Fighter Buggy RX, except in name. The chassis for the model would later be designated the DT-01 and used for the Madbull and Mad Fighter.
It was often referred to as an entry-level car as it was ideal for those new drivers buying a car for the first time, because it came at an economic price and with the aid of the typically well prepared Tamiya Manual that came with the kit, was easy to construct.
The kit comes with Nylon/plastic and sintered brass bush type bearings that after a short while, when dust and grit get into them, actually abrade the metal cup drive shafts – if you are building this kit to race seriously these should be replaced by a full set of steel ball bearings.
To drive, the buggy handled well and was sturdy enough to take beginners bumps and scrapes.
