Tamiya unintentionally started & powered the RC rock crawler craze with the versatile axles of their Clod Buster and TLT-1, but with the CR-01 they made their presence in this niche market official.

Pros: Super-soft tires on real beadlock wheels, solid axles, sturdy frame Cons: Unconventional suspension has a lot of slop, components are complex & heavy
