We hear what you’re thinking (really! we do!) – you’re saying ‘Bah, what does Mini4WD have to do with RC?’ (Mini4WD, for the uninitiated, are very small cars made by Tamiya that race each other in a channel, similar to an elaborate slot car or Hot Wheels-style stunt track).
Well, believe it or not, the Mini4WD scene is HUGE in Japan, introduces young kids to model cars, tuning and customizing and gets loads of people introduced to RC all at the same time. It’s also been around for 30 years! To celebrate this anniversary, Tamiya have made a short film to celebrate, showcasing more than 200 different Mini4WD models they’ve made over the decades.
