A Funky Four-Wheel Drive
This is an R/C model assembly kit of the FJ Cruiser, a 4WD vehicle
which made its debut in the North American market in 2006 and Japan in
2010, winning a host of fans with its Land Cruiser 40-inspired style
and quirky form with round headlights, oval front grill, chunky
fenders, and trio of windscreen wipers. The model's tough polycarbonate
body accurately recreates the American-spec version of the car,
including separate parts to depict door mirrors with lamp, spare tire
with cover, and front grille. Front and rear light cases can be fitted
with LED units (separately sold) for an even more realistic appearance!
The All-Terrain CC-01 Chassis
The CC-01's highly reliable and efficient full-time 4WD system features
a horizontally-positioned motor, which transmits power to the front
wheels via the gearbox and to the rear wheels via propeller shaft.
Front and rear differentials enable smooth cornering, and for even
greater off-road performance on rough terrain, the rear differential
may be locked during assembly. The chassis suspension employs
double-wishbone front upper I-arms and lower H-arms plus rear rigid
suspension. With 4 CVA oil dampers in total fitted to the front and
rear, there's enough cushion to take on even the roughest surfaces. It
also looks the part, with cool 6-spoke wheels featuring metal-plated
bead lock style rims, plus mud terrain tires.
