Vintage Tamiya Road Wizard

This vintage 1/10th scale Tamiya Road Wizard Formula 01 electric RC car (#58053) is one of the favorites in our collection.  We purchased it from a fellow RC’er in Hawaii in 2008 and we are glad we did. He took really great care of it and it shows in the photo’s.Tamiya introduced the Road Wizard in March of 1986 and it was an instant hit. It featured a mono shock rear suspension and a Mabuchi 540 style motor. A true pan car, it was easy to drive despite being 2 wheel drive and weighing 980 grams. It was also one of the first kits to have foam style tires instead of the traditional rubber tires featured on other Tamiya kits. Breaking from tradition, it also featured a lexan body, in fact, it came with 2 bodies included so you could choose between 2 different liveries. The John Player Special livery was the hot ticket, but you could also build it as the Road Warrior in white. The kit also included 2 separate decal sheets for each livery.
