The revolutionary 1984 2WD off-road buggy is back and more fun than ever before!

5/5 5/5 5/5 5/5 5/5 | It's a hoot!
David | 30/08/2010
Slightly put off by multi-language manual and what appeared to be complicated instructions for building it. Still, I managed to build it in a day (pretty much a whole day!) with no great problem.

Runs beautifully slowly and fast....very very fast.

Bought with the fast charge kit and radio which all fitted together easily.

Dean Sullivan | 09/07/2014
My first purchase from Fusion and was very pleased with this off roader...only having 1 off roader before I was pleased how it all went together..certain things have changed since the earlier Tamiya models so there is also a nice new learning curve to challenge you...The Hornet is a nippy little vehicle and I'm super impressed with it.

5/5 5/5 5/5 5/5 5/5 | It's still a hoot!
dgy | 05/06/2013
Since I wrote my original "It's a hoot!" review my hornet has been trodden on, smashed, bashed, done cartwheels and still running brilliantly. The only thing I've had to do is change the front bumper - one too many knocks against the curb split the centre join, and I've had to change the rear tyres which I'd worn to slicks.

Suspension on this car isn't great - it rather skips over grass and uneven surfaces - the rear being a single axle means it can never be fantastic, but had it on a dusty unmade road today and it was skidding and sliding and just the most fun. On my smooth drive it's absolutely fantastic.

I can recommend a bearing kit - not really retro-fittable, everything still spinning freely on my Hornet. Hornet has a trouble-free geared diff unlike many other cheaper models (which have bearing diffs).

I have a Tamiya Hot Shot (a 4WD model) and m'boy has an Ansmann Mad Monkey but Hornet remains my favourite just for mad 2WD slip and slide action.

The only thing that would make it better would be independent rear suspension and better shocks all round but it's still a great little car.
