Quoting the Tamiya Website:

The first release in Tamiya’s new 1/18 Scale Little Gear Series, the TLT-1 (Tamiya Little Truck) Rock Buster harnesses the motor power of a 1/10th scale vehicle in a mini-sized 1/18th scale truck. 

Designed to use standard size electronics such as a 540 size motor, most electronic speed controls, standard size receiver and servo/s makes the TLT-1 one of the most versatile 1/18th scale vehicles in the market.

Featuring 4WD, superior four link cantilever suspension and four wheel steering capabilities, the TLT-1 also performs as well as its 1/10th scale counterparts. Being less than 30cm long, this truck can be as much fun in the house as it is outside. A lightweight durable polycarbonate body combined with loads of metal parts makes this little truck super tough.

Box comes with handle and can be used as a simple carry case even after assembly. Tamiya will also be releasing a specially designed triangular battery pack to fit the TLT-1 battery holder.
