The Mercedes-Benz G-Class' outstanding durability and off-road performance have made it a firm favourite with consumers since its inception in 1979, its polished technology taken over and modernized with each generation to make it a top class SUV. This is an R/C model assembly kit of the G 320, a 2-door cabriolet produced between 1997 and 2001, and much sought-after thanks to its stylish looks and typically uncompromising G-Class performance. The body is reproduced in tough, lightweight polycarbonate, with separately moulded side mirrors and metal plated grille-parts. See below for more information about the exciting new shaft-driven 4WD MF-01X chassis, which this model pairs with 7-spoke wheels and semi-pneumatic treaded tires for super performance whether on- or off-road.
Based around a tough monocoque frame with integrated gearboxes, this compact 4WD chassis gives a thrilling drive whether you take it on road or flat dirt surfaces. It features a rear-mounted motor, with gear-driven rear wheels and a propeller shaft taking power to the front. Both front and rear gearboxes have differential gears. The battery pack location in the chassis centre secures excellent balance, while 4-wheel independent double wishbone suspension employs friction dampers. Off-road capable M-05Ra chassis uprights and hub carriers are also included.
All parts according to Tamiya Guide books, Tamiya manuals and Tamiya parts listings.
