Toyota Made Full Size Replica Of A Radio-Controlled Model With On-Off Button And An Antenna!

Boys love radio controlled (RC) cars. But when they grow up they tend to prefer real cars. But give a grown up an RC car and watch him turn into a kid again. Toyota knows this all too well and recently created a full-size replica of this Tamiya RC truck. This is the result.

Tamiya is famous for its range of battery and nitrox powered RC cars. Toyota is famous for making indestructible pick-up trucks. So this doesn’t surprise us in the least. The working replica is based on a Hilux pick-up truck and is inspired by the legendary Hilux Bruiser RC car of the ’80s.

Toyota turned to Arctic Trucks, the company that specialises in off-road truck conversions. And have done a fine job. The Hilux Bruiser wears 35 inch tyres to replicate the RC and made a high lift suspension conversion. Other mechanical modifications include altered gear ratios to give the Bruiser some go to match the show.

Speaking of which, the original’s famous ‘Hog Heaven’ livery was painstakingly recreated to match the original. Every little detail is present – from the on-off switch on the flatbed to a removable antenna. The rear window is now louvered, the tailgate is removable and of course there’s the ‘Hog Heaven’ decal to complete the looks. Other details include the tubular bumpers and R-shaped body clips for the bonnet.

But don’t be rushing yet to buy one. The Hilux Bruiser is a one-off! Guess we’ll all have to make do with drooling over these pictures.
