General[edit | edit source]

The bodyshell design of the Blast Arrow is based on and inspired by the Le Mans Prototype (LMP) race cars and is fully-cowled.

The side air-ducts are also designed into the body to dissipate heat from the batteries inside. There are various faux-sponsor decals around the bodyshell, mostly the products Tamiya had released such as mass damper and Neo-Champ Batteries among other examples.

All models were equipped with the small-diameter fin-type low-profile wheels paired with low-profile slick tires.
