As soon as Tamiya announced the Mountain Rider I made sure I was on the list to review the re-release of the truck that I wanted so badly back in the 90s. It’s taken a lot of time to finish the truck but it’s finally done and ready for you to see. The truck pretty much fell together but painting the “hard” body took a few weeks to complete. I asked what you wanted to see for a paint job on the RC Car Action Facebook page and most wanted the truck to have a box-art look, so stock it is. I’m working on a full review of the Mountain Rider and it will be in the magazine soon. Here are a few pics for the finished truck for you to see now.

About the authorSimply put, I’m all about nitro. Well, almost. I’m down with electric for crawlers and some indoor racing, but if you really want to get my attention, it better make some smoke and noise. I’m a regular racer and I usually go with 1/8-scale buggy and truggy. When I’m not racing, I am usually fabricating custom parts and even entire vehicles.
