Looks like a good bit of fun, though we're not sure of any benefit over the original Rebound 4x4.

The 1997 Tyco Recoil is a radio controlled monster truck manufactured by Taiyo (Japan), and released onto the US, UK, and other markets worldwide in 1997.

Continuing the 90s tradition of flip-boxed windowed packaging, the 6.0v Jet Turbo Recoil was a ‘Monster Truck’ style RC based upon the chassis of the 1996 Tyco Rebound 4×4.

Features and Performance

Even with a 6V power train, the Recoil / Rebound chassis has plenty of go, though it’s mostly high acceleration with a low top speed, which is perfect for it’s intended use – indoor lounge-room adventuring, and occasional outside dirt bashing.

Based on the chassis, wheel, battery, and overall similarity with the Rebound, we’d expect the truck to be powered by 2 x Mabuchi RS260 motors, however without photos of a teardown we can’t be 100% sure.

Unfortunately there are no videos of this mini beast on YouTube, it’s not a very common car.

Notice the similarities in the Recoil and Rebound battery compartment, On/Off Switch placement, and chassis screw locations.


Unfortunately the Recoil just isn’t very common, and comes up very occasionally on eBay. If you’re looking for one, we’d suggest setting up a Saved Search and waiting several months, or simply buying a Rebound 4×4 for a similar style of fun.
