To all those 30-somethings who used to play with toy cars when they were younger and want to pretend they are 9-years old again; Tamiya is celebrating their 30th anniversary of the Sand Scorcher with an improved re-release of the model. The new improvements include more fine tuned parts that are sure to increase performance and durability. Just as the original, the updated Sand Scorcher features ribbed front tires and paddle rear tires. Since the Sand Scorcher and the Buggy Champ use the same chassis, the spare parts are interchangeable making it that much easier to fulfill your vintage needs.
