Introducing the 8th wonder of the Tamiya Robocraft series! Get ready, because here comes a super fun to assemble, super fast, super colorful Mechanical Rabbit. Motor rotating power is transferred to the legs via crank plates to make the rabbit hop. The long ears and the rounded face, which have been specially molded, employ semi-transparent parts, giving the rabbit a funky look. Assembly is very simple with use of screws and snap-lock parts.
See-through transparent switch and gearbox
A see-through switch with pink transparent parts adds a cool, futuristic look. Moreover, this feature also allows you to see internal mechanisms.
Battery moved forward for effective movement.
The Mechanical Rabbit is powered by only one R03/AAA/UM4 battery (sold separately) to keep this agile bunny light weight. Motor and battery case have been shifted to the front of the body to allow for smooth, unhindered rear leg movement.
Different movement for front and rear legs to make the rabbit hop.
Motor rotating power is transferred to the legs via crank plates to make the rabbit hop. Rear legs kick the robot forward in a hopping motion similar to that of a...cute little bunny rabbit. As more of the weight is born by the front legs, rollers are attached to the feet to eliminate this extra load.
Running the Rabbit
The mechanical rabbit comes with guides to be attached to both sides of the rabbit so it can be used on Mini 4WD circuits. You can race your friends.
Caution: Run on flat, smooth surfaces. Avoid running over slopes, on bumpy roads or on thick carpet.
