Released in 2007, the Nitrage is a four-wheel-drive, glow-engine-powered R/C truggy by Tamiya.

It has the specially-made, modular construction chassis, consists of front and rear gearboxes (with suspensions, shock towers, dampers, driveshafts, wheels and tires), a glow-engine, a large 150cc fuel tank, a center gearbox, and a mechanical box (housing the receiver and batteries). All parts were put onto a strong, press-molded aluminum deck.

It was powered by a powerful, fully adjustable 5.2cc FR-32FX glow engine, paired to the starter gear parts for easily starting the engine using the Tamiya Handy Starter without removing the body first.

The center gearbox has the Flexible Joint Drive (FJD) system and a durable aluminum-made slipper clutch, which reduces stress to the engine and improves transmission efficiency respectively. The center gearbox also has the disc-based brake system, which helps to control the truggy in high speed.

It has the four-wheel independent, fully-adjustable double-wishbone suspension system, with four independent, aluminum-made high-capacity oil-filled dampers and aluminum shock towers. The front, rear and center differentials are viscous limited-slip differentials.

All gearboxes were fully enclosed to prevent tiny rocks and dusts from getting into the gearboxes. The Nitrage was equipped with the oversized, dish-type wheels paired with the oval spike tires with inner sponges.

The Nitrage was available in both the pre-assembled form packaged with the R/C system and assemble kit.
