If you're a fan of classic R/C models, Tamiya has an upcoming re-release that's sure to delight fans of late-80s buggies.  Refreshed for 2020, the Terra Scorcher kit is getting another chance to shine, combining old-school chassis design with components suited to supporting today's high-power batteries and motors.

With a shaft-driven four-wheel drive system, plastic tub-style chassis, oil-filled shocks, and front and rear stabilizers, this buggy is a great look back at classic radio-controlled performance.
