Here’s my official running video for the brand new Thunder Tiger Jackal. This 1/10th scale 4wd desert buggy comes as an RTR minus the battery for the vehicle. Check out my unboxing:
Thunder Tiger has been around since the late 1970’s and famous for some of the coolest products in the RC industry. The e-MTA and MT4 were some of the recent bullet-proof monster trucks that graced us from the far east.
Now, entering the scale desert buggy segment, the Jackal combines Thunder Tiger’s proven platforms with some scale aspects of the 1/10th desert buggy. Brushless, waterproof, 2.4ghz, RTR and good looks, the Jackal should be a great contender in the RC market.
