Overland Crusher!

I just received my second 1/32 Mitsuwa off road truck from my good friend in Japan. This one has a longer wheel base and big off road tires that look like my HPI Savage! The taller tires give it good top end and with the 6v battery this truck is fast It has good ground clearance and can handle some off roading.

Another pic. I wish our shop could get these here in the USA as they are not exspensive and are very cool. We will be working on stocking them but so far it seams to be impossible.

Wow that is totally better than the Overlander.

As for getting them here, what about having your friend in Japan just buy a bunch and ship them out to you? (i bet you already thought of this though)

I think the challange is Mitsuwa is a small company that is not wanting to produce for the USA market. IM still working on it but if I have my friend ship me a bunch they would be to expensive for resale.

resale

Do you have a website for this company?

If enough people contact them, maybe they'll reconsider importing them. Even if not, I would be curious to find more about these trucks

Give us more information!!! Speed, size, videos, anything

One more thing

Oh yeah, one more thing!

Do they have removable crystals? If not, how many can you run at once?

I am assuming they are r/c, not IR?

Do they come with a transmitter? Pic?

Thanks... keep the info coming

I have not found a web site. The crystal is removable and it's 27mHZ. Both car's I have came w/o transmitter but they have a crystal in the rx. The Rx looks like the tamiya/Futaba unit that the tamtecs came with. The truck is fast! and it is capable of running in dirt and gravel unlike the Overland.

Where did he get it?

IRC:

Do you know where your buddy got it? I have a friend outside Tokyo and would love to pick a couple up for racing.

If it is 27Mhz but removable does that mean I could 6-9 at a time? Could I slip in a 75 Mhz crystal and use with a regular gun?

Could you slip in one more pic with something of normal scale? (pen, dollar bill, etc?)

Thanks, keep trying to get your hands on more. It sounds like you won't have any problems selling them

If it is 27Mhz you can exchange crystals only with 27Mhz frequencies. 75Mhz is a different frequency. 27 is about as common as 75Mhz for land use.

Awes0me

IRC:

Is this the same truck?

2000 yen is less than $20 US unless that is a misprint.

Let me know and I will get one.

I am assuming that it didn't include any electronics (recever, esc, servo, etc). Can it fit standard equipment or do you need to use micro everything?

Where did you get the stickers from?

Sorry for all the questions but this looks just too good to pass up. It is exactly what I was looking for.
