Tamiya Announces New Toyota FJ Cruiser and CC-01 Options

Jan 14, 2014 No Comments by

Tamiya’s long-popular CC-01 chassis will soon be available dressed as a Toyota FJ Cruiser, joining  the Land Cruiser 40 already in the lineup to represent both ends of the Landcruiser lineage. The bodywork is spot-on (as usual), with lots of injection-molded detailing for a completely authentic look. The CC-01 chassis is scale-like as well, featuring integrated wheel wells and combining an independent front suspension with a solid-axle rear end and lockable differential.  In addition to the new FJ, Tamiya has announced a couple of CC-01 option parts as well–see below.
