The Tamiya Holiday Buggy was re-introduced in 2010 to mark 30 years since its original release.

It was always intended to be a starter kit for youngsters to get into RC cars and it still does the job today.

Originally based on its own chassis, the 2010 re-release saw the Holiday Buggy body, wheels, tyres and driver figure applied to the proven bath tub frame of Tamiya's DT-02 chassis.

This is super strong and does a great job of protecting the electrical components and battery as well as allowing you to treat the Holiday Buggy with very little respect!


Key Features

  • 1:10 scale model
  • Length: 390mm, Width: 240mm, Height: 164mm, Weight: 1250g
  • Strong injection-moulded "bath tub" chassis keeps all the radio gear safe
  • Comes with a 380 type motor but can be upgraded to a 540 motor available separately
  • 2 wheel rear drive with a differential makes cornering very stable
  • Rear mounted gearbox is sealed to keep the diff clean when off-road
  • Friction coil dampers on double wishbone front and rear end
  • Bright yellow Tamiya wheels with ribbed front tyres and spiked rears just like the original.
  • Tough polyethelene shell is supplied in the correct blue so need to paint it (in fact Tamiya suggests you don't try to paint it).
  • Full body sticker sheets are super easy for kids to do.
  • Includes electronic speed controller (ESC)
  • Includes a pre-painted driver figure


Easy to build, no painting required and super controllable handling and drive - what's not to like?

This is the perfect introduction to RC car kit building for a youngster who has perhaps already got the bug from an RTR car.

The bodyshell is pre-coloured in blue and made out of super strong polyethelene (PE). It means a perfect finish obviously and no time spent waiting for paint to dry.

A pre-painted driver figure is included and though he looks a bit scary, does set off the body nicely.

Once you've shod the bright yellow wheels with tyres and stuck on the numerous bright decals, you end up with a really attractive little buggy.

Probably the trickiest part of the build is connecting the right wires up to the servo, receiver and battery, but if you take your time and read the instructions, there is nothing to fear.

The build takes 3 to 4 hours so you will be out and about ragging it around your garden in no time!

Having the battery centrally located in the bath tub chassis gives lovely neutral handling and when fitted with the standard (included) 380 motor is really easy to keep under control - enough power to do doughnuts and drifts, yet not so much that you feel it will run away from you.
