Three challenges, two cars, one quarry: we pitch the legendary Tamiya Bruiser radio controlled car against its life-size counterpart – the Toyota Hilux Bruiser
Toyota has created a real-life version of a Tamiya’s famous Bruiser radio-controlled car – so for Autocar’s Christmas special we brought the two mighty machines together. In a quarry.
Which is best at drifting, jumping and hillclimbing: the full-size Arctic Trucks-adapted Hilux, or its R/C forebear? Editor-at-large Matt Prior and our resident road test elf Alan Taylor-Jones put them through their paces to find out in this highly scientific video test.
You can find all of Autocar’s videos (not all of which feature R/C cars…) on our Youtube channel.
