Look Who's Back!
This re-release version of the Monster Beetle assembly kit features a number of updates while keeping the basic layout of the original off-road car released in 1986. It features a realistic customized Beetle body depicted in tough polystyrene resin, with metal-plated parts supplied in the kit to add the finishing touch for handles and headlight frames. A resin driver figure is the icing on top of the cake!

Tough Space Frame Chassis
This hardy model's rear-wheel drive chassis is based around a durable ABS space frame to withstand all-action off-road driving. 4-wheel independent suspension uses CVA oil dampers, and has double wishbone front and trailing arm rear setups. Superlative cushioning and grip are provided by 130mm-diameter, 58mm-width lug pattern pin spike tires on flashy gold color plated wheels. Efficient and durable universal shafts come with rubber boots.

- Front double wishbone and rear trailing arm setups are cushioned by high-performance CVA oil dampers.
- Space frame chassis incorporates a dust cover part to ensure that vital R/C equipment is protected.
- Universal drive shafts not only boost efficiency; they also minimize the risk of popping out when driving.


  • 1/10 scale R/C model assembly kit.
  • The injection-moulded plastic body accurately captures the classic Tamiya Monster Beetle shape and style.
  • A driver figure is also included.
  • Where possible, the markings from the original model design have been recreated and combined with some newly designed markings.
  • The rugged ABS space-frame chassis from the original model (58060) has remained.
  • The chassis uses a double-wishbone front with trailing arm rear suspension setups that work in tandem with the CVA oil dampers.
  • The rear universal drive shafts transfer power smoothly and come with rubber boots to protect them from dust.
  • A large dust cover is included to protect the R/C equipment.
  • The incredible 130mm diameter tyres with lug/pin spike tread provides fantastic off-road performance.
  • The tyres are also paired with gold-effect, one-piece wheels.

This is a great kit if you like to build your own, lovely quality and everything went together well but you do have to stick to the order of assembly in the excellent instructions. A very good service from Wheelspin as always, if I have to be picky the recommended Hitec servo's splined shaft isn't compatible with the Tamiya supplied servo saver's. The Hitec has 24 splines and Tamiya's are 23 and 25?

This is a great kit Tamiya quality through out, really enjoyed the build apart from the fact that Wheelspin offer the Hitec servo and the supplied servo savers aren't compatable but I'm sure that Wheelspin will put that right!
