Toyota's Land Cruiser 4x4s are known throughout the world for their legendary off-road capability. Toyota began production of the Land Cruiser in 1950, and the Land Cruiser 40 that was made from 1960 to 1984, even now, this classic 4x4 still has an enormous following.
With its reputation as a dependable and durable vehicle, many are still earning their keep in harsh conditions and it's the vehicle of choice for many real life rock crawling competition drivers. Tamiya has reproduced this classic off-roader as an R/C model kit based on the tried and tested CR-01 rock crawling chassis.
This chassis features a tough ladder frame with aluminum side channels and resin crossmembers, 4-link suspension with aluminum rods, 4WD system with lockable differentials, massive off-road tires with sidewall tread pattern and dependable beadlock wheels. The body is accurately reproduced in durable polycarbonate material, giving scale model fans a superbly capable rock crawler with excellent realism.
The Land Cruisers chassis features a 4-link rigid suspension system along with front and rear stabilizers which ensures excellent performance. The tires feature foam inserts and have an additional tread pattern on the sidewalls to provide maximum grip in rock crawling environments.
The tires are mounted on 3-piece beadlock wheels to prevent them coming off the rims. The damper system is actuated via pushrods and rocker arms while the coil springs help to maintain a controllable stance.
The steering servo is mounted above the axle in an innovative way to reduce interference with the suspension movement. The compact gearbox transfers power to all 4 wheels and its small size enables lower battery position for a perfectly balanced center of gravity. The front and rear 3-bevel diffs can be locked to provide the ultimate level of off-road traction.
