Just A Little RC History

Post by TycoTamiya4eva »

These are rare Tyco/Taiyo 4wd racing nissan trucks that came out before the Tyco Bandit. It was released in 1988 and discontinued that same year. The Taiyo version is even rarer than the Tyco version. Both have the duel motor, which provided the 4wd action, and the only notable difference is one sports the Goodyear on the side and number 27, while the other sports BFGoodrich and number 77 besides that they are identical. They introduced the Tyco Bandit after this, which was more popular in the states. They used the same body but took away the 4wd feature and used the bigger rear wheels and smaller front style that we all loved as a kid. If you see any of these especially the Taiyo version, grab it or if you are serious and want one let me know as I have plenty. Now, being these came out in 1988 and the Tamiya King Cab was released in October 1989, did Tamiya borrow from Tyco/Taiyo? 🤔 Hmmmmm either way, they are both great rare trucks and great to any collectors collection!
