Tamiya Rough Rider was the very first of Tamiya's SRB (Special racing buggies) series. These according to Tamiya made Radio Control Models accessible to everyone. The design is famous for its fibre glasschassis with rear torsion bars and front hairpin springs. These models originally cost 18,000 yen. They are very popular these days to collectors being first in the series that produced legends like the Sand Scorcher and the Super Champ. These days, MIB (Mint in Box) examples of this model are very rare and change hands for a lot of money. Even what can only be described as wrecks change hands for good money.
