In 1983, Honda Japan produced an early kei car called the City Turbo.

In typical japanese style, Tamiya took this as the basis for an hilarious 1/10 scale racing version that became known as Willy’s Wheeler because of its built-in ability to perform outrageous wheelies.

All this “wheelie-ing” called for a super tough resin body and sturdy chassis. With this re-release, Tamiya have improved on the original chassis by using a WR-02C chassis - a slightly longer wheelbase version of the standard WR-02 giving much improved stability when turning at higher speeds.

This new WR-02C chassis with added side members, protects the gearbox and differential (which come ready-built and sealed) with power power to the rear wheels provided by a centrally-mounted electric motor.

The battery pack lies longitudinally along with the steering servo so that when performing a wheelie, the model is less likely to topple over sideways.

At the rear, a wheelie bar cushions the model and prevents a complete back-flip and also allows for extended wheelie fun.

Unlike the original, this edition has four-wheel independent suspension and is therefore a much better handling model when simply running it around a carpark - it’s actually a really fun little race car!

The Wild Willy driver figure included in the kit has that mischievous cartoon-like appearance also seen in the Wild Willy’s jeep and just begs to be painted with wild eyes!

In Conclusion

The Tamiya Honda City Turbo Willy's Wheeler is one of the most fun RC products ever produced - the perfect blend of zany cartoon and serious racer.
