Performance

The chassis appears to related to the 1988 Super Turbo Hopper, with modifications.

  • Jet Fighter Styling
  • 9.6v Turbo 8xAA
  • 2WD
  • Single Mabuchi 280 Motor
  • Top Speed 25km/h (16mph)
  • All Round Shocks
  • Chrome Rims and Off-Road Tires

Note: It has been reported that this Single-Motor version of the Max Turbo Blaster has magnetic steering, which while better than passive, isn’t as a good as active. 

Multiple release, same name

Taiyo first released a ‘Max Turbo Blaster’ in 1989 as model 8905. Over a year after writing this article, we’ve finally learned the difference. The 1989 model uses a Twin Turbo (2 Motor) chassis, incredible! See the article on that model here:
