Frequently Asked Questions About Tamiya Cars
Not sure if a Tamiya remote-controlled car is right for you? Here are a few frequently asked questions our customers tend to have. Of course, you can always contact our friendly customer service team with your own queries.
What Was The First Tamiya RC Car?
Tamiya has a long and rich history of selling remote-controlled cars. Many passionate model car lovers see the company as being the very first to offer radio-controlled cars that were accessible and easy to assemble. The very first of these vehicles? A Porsche 934, released in 1976.
The popularity of the Porsche 934 meant its unveiling was quickly followed by a number of other Tamiya car kits, all of which included parts and accessories of unparalleled quality.
Does Tamiya Still Make RC Cars?
Of course! To this day, Tamiya remains one of the largest manufacturers of RC cars in the world.
From their early days spent crafting wooden models right up until the present, Tamiya has been hard at work expanding its product line. Recent models released by the company include the Nissan 370Z and the Ford Mustang GT4, both of which are available at Hobbyco.
How Fast Do Tamiya Cars Go?
The answer to this question depends on a number of factors, including the model itself as well as any additions you choose to make to the vehicle.
Some models of Tamiya RC cars are naturally faster than others. The type of track the car is driving on will also affect the top speed.
If speed is important to you, spend some time browsing Hobbyco’s range of Tamiya RC cars to find one that best fits your needs and be sure to contact our customer service team with any questions.
