Tamiya (58556) Farm King Wheelie (WR-02G)
Makin' Farmin' Fun!
This R/C assembly kit recreates the hard-working mainstay of farm life, the tractor. The polycarbonate body features a comically-styled front mask over the bonnet, a large plod on the rear and exhaust pipes on either side of the driver's seat. A driver figure with ten-gallon hat is also included. The WR-02G chassis features a heavy duty monocoque frame which is equipped with 97mm and 130mm diameter wheels on the front and rear respectively for a realistic scale presence. Motor is positioned along the centreline of the chassis and power is delivered to the rear wheels via fully-enclosed gearbox equipped with a differential. 4-wheel double wishbone suspension makes for realistic mechanism. Designed with a wheelie bar to enable fun, wheels in the air driving action, this tractor definitely puts the fun into farming!
The polycarbonate body includes a bid plough attached to the rear.
The tough monocoque frame and different-sized front and rear wheel sets give the model a powerful base.
Fun wheelie action with the rear-wheel drive WR-02G!
The rear-wheel drive WR-02G chassis was made for rough riding! Shielded by side plates and held tightly in place by the monocoque frame, the gearbox is well-protected from impact, and the different sized front and rear wheels cushion the model's moves. Power is provided to the rear wheels by a centrally-positioned motor, and transmitted via fully-enclosed gearbox equipped with a differential. The location of the battery pack is key: its longitudinally-placed high position in the rear ensures that when the model accelerates, the front naturally rises in a wheelie. As it does so, the wheelie bar at the rear stops the model from toppling over, and in doing so maintains a great wheelie! Steering servos are placed along the centre of the chassis, and they combine with the 2-piece tie rod for precision steering. The suspension is of the tough 4-wheel double-wishbone variety, and the model has such features as a pre-attached motor and gearbox.
