TXT-2 Agrios: Tamiya’s Newest Solid-Axle Monster

TXT-2 Agrios: Tamiya’s Newest Solid-Axle Monster

This new truck is the result of building off of the original TXT-1 design and one of the coolest features is that you can add a second servo for 4 wheel steering. Here is the full press release from Tamiya:

This is the Agrios 4x4x4 Monster truck. The truck body sits on the new Tamiya TXT-2 chassis which is an evolution of the original TXT-1. Agrios, a mythical Greek giant, gives his name to this tough monster truck, which can go over obstacles and rough terrain with ease. The combined use of metal parts with tough plastic lends the model a genuine feeling of power and scale. The truck comes equipped with two 540-brushed motors and is capable of 4-wheel steering when a second servo is added to the rear axle.
