First Look: Tamiya 58686 Vanquish VQS 2020

The VQS 2020 is an updated edition to the legendary Vanquish 4WD buggy. It recieves a few tweaks to bring it into the modern RC world, including a pre-painted (and pre-cut), lightweight polycarbonate body, durable aluminum front uprights with universal driveshafts, planetary gear differentials (from the original Avante) and the TBLE-02S ESC and 540-size brushed motor.

The VQS even comes with stickers based on the original release, but must be applied to the body.

All that's required to get this buggy up and running is a 2-channel radio system, steering servo, 7.2V battery pack and charger.
