MODEL REVIEW

The Tyco Indy Turbo Dominos is a 1/18 radio controlled car manufactured by Taiyo (Japan) and released by Tyco into the US, UK, and other markets worldwide in 1987.

The 49Mhz variant partner of the Indy Turbo Kraco (27Mhz), it is based on the real Indycar driven by Al Unser Jnr in 1986.

Features and Performance

The Indy Turbos feature:

  • Full 8xAA Batteries providing 9.6 volts (the same as the ‘9.6v Turbo Packs)
  • Estimated top speed of at least 25km/h (16mph)
  • Two speed gearbox (Slow / Fast)
  • Slick rubber tires with chrome wheels
  • Independent front suspension
  • LED light on car and controller*

In the 80s LED technology was still in its infancy, and so a toy with LED lights would be considered a feature, unlike today where they’re everywhere and on everything.

Recommendation

The Indy Turbo Dominos is an excellent model, and fun R/C to drive. Just be wary of the slick tires which often degrade – becoming soft and falling apart over time, either due to UV exposure or other means. Tires should be firm and spring back immediately, not soft and spongy. If unable to touch, ask the seller how the tires feel.
