Anyone of a certain age is likely to remember this: the 1981 Tamiya Sand Rover buggy. Many a childhood hour was spent scrabbling around in the dirt with this classic 1:10 radio-controlled off-roader, and to celebrate 30 years of its awesomeness, Tamiya has reissued it, with an updated chassis for the 21st century. Who’s up for revisiting their youth then? See you in the dunes.
