Tamiya Subaru BRAT 2WD Truck Kit

The BRAT is back — and ready to rock!

Designed by Subaru in the late 1970s from their earlier 4WD station wagon model, the BRAT (Bi-drive Recreational All-terrain Transporter) has the unique feature of jump seats welded to the truck bed. Tamiya now brings back this nostalgic model, on the same 2WD chassis as used for The Frog. The 4-wheel independent suspension stands up to tough off-road driving, with power supplied by a 540 motor. Two body shells are included: one made of plastic similar to the original BRAT and one made of a durable polycarbonate material. Requires a 2-channel radio with servo(s), 6-cell battery pack with standard Tamiya connector, charger and paint.
