Video: Watch Tamiya RCs Pull a Full-sized Toyota Hilux


Taking inspiration from classic Tamiya ads, Toyota asked the question: can 15 radio-controlled Tamiya Hilux Bruiser 4x4s pull its full-sized counterpart? With the tires of the RC cars pumped to 60 PSI, their drivetrain locked into low-range four-wheel drive, and ballast added to the bed to aid traction, the answer is a resounding yes! If you don’t believe it, then see the video below.

Interestingly, the 1:10 scale Tamiya Hilux Bruiser 4x4s max out at 23.2 Nm helping them pull the 3,200-kilogram Hilux (there’s even a driver inside) easily. It’s certainly a testament to the capabilities of Tamiya’s remote controlled cars. You can also read in detail on how Toyota UK did it by reading their official blog.

Of course, if that stunt doesn’t impress you, you can see the full-sized Hilux and its Tamiya counterpart do other stunts. It’s all part of a video series by Toyota UK called Little and Large.
