This is a highly accurate 1:14 scale radio control model that recreates the Mercedes Benz Actros 3363 3-axle truck. Powered by a 15.6 Litre inline-6 turbo-charged diesel putting out a max of 630hp, the actual 3363 can haul up to 250 tons!
The Tamiya rendition faithfully captures the trucks' modern form with the use of ABS plastic body parts and a number of metal chassis components. One look at the detailed interior and auxiliary equipment, such as air tanks, will confirm that the body features replica-quality realism, which is further enhanced with metal transfers depicting emblems and numerous metal-plated parts. The chassis is built for durability as it uses aluminum side channels with resin cross members. Drivability is accomplished by power from the front-mounted motor and is transmitted via a propeller shaft to the rear axle; built-in differential gears guarantee smooth cornering.
The Actros' realism can be further heightened with separately-available trailers that can be attached to its coupler and make the model over a metre in length!

No radio gear or equipment, glue or paint is included. For optimum performance and fun, we strongly recommend the Multi-function unit and Truck Radio Package (which includes radio set, battery, charger and 2 servos) - both sold seperately. If you do not buy the Multi-function unit you will also need a speed controller.
Truck Radio Package (sold seperately) includes: 6 Channel Radio, Servos, Battery & Charger
Multi-Function Unit (sold seperately) This unit adds a whole extra layer of realism to driving and allows transmitter trim levers to be combined with with stick control use, meaning you can enjoy lights, sounds and vibrations co-ordinated.
The Tamiya flat bed semi-trailer kit is a popular optional extra. This model's highly realistic appearance is achieved by using authentic components such as aluminium chassis / frame, wood-floored platform and actual chains
