The Mini 4WD REV (ミニ四駆REV) is a Mini 4WD series line-up introduced by Tamiya in 2012. It was created as part of the 30th anniversary of Tamiya Mini 4WD series.
Like Aero Mini 4WD series, this line-up has heavily focus on aero-dynamic designs, but instead of just on the bodyshells, aero-dynamic features can be found on the new AR Chassis as well. In order to maximized the heat-dissipation of the new chassis, the bodyshells has several air-ducts for that purpose.
The first 3 cars in the lineup, plus Flame Astute (inheriting name from the Astute Jr.) are based on the cars from the Racing Mini 4WD and Mini 4WD PRO series; Shadow Shark is the only one with completely new design so far.
