For all boys, owning an RC that is comparable to a real car is definitely a dream. This also includes many children’s fathers, such as the author. In the field of climbing RC, Tamiya Mountain Pig is a classic that can never be bypassed. In 1985, Tamiya officially launched the Keiler, which has since become the most classic representative in the climbing RC world. Three-speed gearbox, four-wheel drive system, leaf spring suspension and powerful axles, of course, there is a high price. This is the ultimate toy for almost any young child, including his dad.
Toyota UK and Arctic Trucks have teamed up to launch a full-size Keiler based on the current Hilux pickup. The painting and outline of the body are almost on par with the Tamiya boar of that year, and it can basically be regarded as the largest boar in the world.
From the appearance point of view, the full-size boar is designed by Arctic Trucks, and naturally includes large-size snow and ice tires, which are equipped with 35-inch tires. At the same time, the suspension and axles have been improved to meet the use of large-size tires. . The design of the large Arctic truck tires naturally fits the definition of the original boar as a climbing vehicle.
In terms of appearance and color matching, it is completely the classic color of wild boar, blue and white, the rear of a row and a half cabs and the front and rear bumpers are decorated with white, and there is also a cartoon image of a wild boar angel on the door. The paint surface is also designed with large grains to simulate the classic spraying of Tamiya boar. The shutter design on the rear window is also in line with the design of the Keiler.
The handling of details also reproduces the requirements of the model, including equipment boxes, circlips and so on.
In terms of power, this full-size mountain pig retains the configuration of a four-cylinder diesel engine with a maximum output of 110 kilowatts, matched with a six-speed manual gearbox and a part-time four-wheel drive system. In terms of marketing, the full-size Keiler will not be put on the market, it will only appear as a display. If this article evokes the childlike innocence of your children’s fathers, then go buy a boar, and you will really get old if you don’t play with it.
