Beneath its realistic exterior, the Land Cruiser is equipped with a feature-rich chassis that has proven itself on the trails. The chassis boasts aluminum rails, providing a sturdy and stable foundation, as well as a multi-link geometry with panhard bar chassis design to ensure optimal axle articulation for navigating challenging terrain with ease.

Powering this miniature marvel is a high-torque gearbox, which efficiently transfers power to its grippy tires through robust nylon driveshafts.
