MODEL REVIEW

The Mini Traxx is a radio controlled tracked vehicle toy manufactured by Taiyo Japan, and released into the US, UK, and other markets worldwide by Tyco in 1992.

The Mini Traxx appears to have been fairly limited in its release, with very few examples seen in the wild.

Features and Performance

The Mini Traxx has a reduced functionality, more closely related to the Micro range of Tyco vehicles, in that it cannot turn both clockwise and counterclockwise, rather only clothwise.

Despite this limitation, it’s still surprisingly fun to drive, mostly due to the excellent track system it shares with its bigger brother, it’s built quality which is just as good as any Tyco, and well… it looks awesome!

It will power over many obstacles indoors, and is a blast outside in dirt, rocks, scrub, etc.

Recommendation

If you’re looking for a Tyco Mini Traxx, I’d recommend trying for the slightly more common (and I mean slightly) Taiyo Mini Traxx, which is the same vehicle, built and sold for the Japanese market, usually available on Yahoo Japan.
