Tamiya have released a first image of their forthcoming Monster Beetle Trail truck based on the new GF-01TR chassis. The classic Tamiya Monster Beetle is an iconic RC kit and this version takes the classic body, shrinks it to a smaller scale, and mounts it on a variant GF-01 chassis called the GF-01TR. The GF-01TR fits the gear-driven GF-01 chassis with reduction gears, also known as portal axles. This modification allows the hobbyist to better transverse trail terrain as it lifts the bottom of the chassis to better clear obstacles that could high centre the vehicle and render it stuck. No word yet on a release date but as the box art seems pretty much done the kit should hit stores in the near future.
