This R/C assembly kit recreates the 4WD buggy Saint Dragon which was the main model of a popular 1980s Japanese comic. The chassis consists of a tough bathtub frame plus front and rear gearboxes with suspension attached. 4-wheel double wishbone suspension uses CVA oil dampers for a superior ride, and a front stabilizer for a firm setup. The stylish body is moulded in polycarbonate and pre-painted white, just requiring application of stickers to finish it.

Efficient Shaft-Driven 4WD
The chassis features a shaft-driven 4WD drivetrain married to a lightweight and tough bathtub frame that employs front and rear gearboxes with the suspension attached to them; that suspension utilizes upper “I” and lower “H” arms, and offers a ground-hugging drive. CVA oil dampers and a front stabilizer contribute further to an excellent drive. Both gearboxes house a gear differential, and are compact to ensure plentiful ground clearance. The kit also features an aluminium motor mount for superior heat dissipation.

– The flowing, dynamic body lines are a real treat; it is pre-painted in white, and pre-cut, just requiring application of stickers.

– A durable, easy-maintenance layout employs a bathtub frame with front and rear gearboxes screw-attached to it.

– Double-wishbone suspension features upper “I” and lower “H” arms, and employs a front stabilizer to minimize roll when cornering.

– CVA oil dampers give exemplary shock absorption that translates into a highly controllable drive.

– An aluminium motor mount not only boosts the model’s rigidity, it also helps with motor heat dissipation.
