Default 1/12 scale 4wd pan car

Does anyone remember a 1/12 scale 4wd pan car? The front was driven by a chain drive. I remember seeing it at the Ranch Pit Shop around 1984.

Thumbs up

ABC made a 1/12th scale car in the mid 80s called a Spark that was 4wd chain drive, as well as a 2wd car that had 4-wheel independent suspension called a Superhero. Cool stuff, but relatively fragile.

AYK also had a car dubbed "Quattro" that was also 4wd chain drive.



There were more than a few different kits that tried 4wd.
