Tamiya Vaj-What? Vajra Sholud Be Called Avante Truck

The Tamiya Avante was unobtainable gold to me as a child. I had lust in my heart for this buggy. I never got one of these fragile rides. That was probably for the best. It would have broken and I would be able to afford or find parts for it. Now I'm old. With age comes patience and money so now I can wait and afford to repair one of I break it.
This puppy right here is sweet like candy. It looks sexy with the body on or off. I don't really care how it performs because it has a cool factor of 11. The name sucks. over here in the states women have a nickname for their private part. They call it a vajayjay. Do you see the confusion? This truck is awesome just like women are so maybe it is a good name. Check out the truck. Bask in its awesomeness. Then buy one.
This is an electric R/C assembly kit of a 4WD racing truck. The main chassis platform is a 15mm longer wheelbase version of the basic chassis of Item 58489 Avante (2011) and is matched with 100mm diameter V-pattern block tires. The truck uses a new 2.0mm thick carbon fiber lower & upper deck. Its longer wheelbase (275mm) provides increased stability during high-speed off-road driving. The aluminum and metal trailing arm suspension from the Avante has been replaced with durable plastic suspension, as seen in the Vanquish kit (item 58076), for the Vajra.
