Tamiya Subaru Brat (1983, 2007)

Tamiya’s re-issue initiative continues to bring back the oldies. The Subaru Brat was originally issued in 1983 and has been re-issued in 2007. As expected, the re-issue remains very faithful to the original while adding a few improvements.


The artwork on the box is the same as on the original, including the small thumbnail of the chassis in the upper right corner.

This shot of the chassis is from the side of the box and details the chassis components nicely. The Brat uses the same chassis as the Frog.

Also on the side of the box are detailed artworks on the suspension components.

A color-coded engineering drawing is standard fare on Tamiya packaging.

The motor drivetrain components are illustrated along with suggested radio and battery gear.

New for the re-issue is an electronic speed controller and second body shell in polycarbonate.

Nice thing about these re-issues is that many of their parts can be used to update other vintage Tamiya models. In this case, the Subaru Brat uses the same wheels and tires that are on the Ford Ranger F150 XLT. In addition to the Ranger, the tires are the same as the rear tires on the Rough Rider and Fast Attack Vehicle.

    You should be able to get spare parts from tamiyausa.com or towerhobbies.com since the Brat has been re-issued by Tamiya.
