The Hirobo Alien Mid4, what else do I have to say? This being my second Hirobo I am continually amazed by the advanced design of these buggies for their time. The Hirobo Alien Mid4 is a four wheel drive, belt driven, midship mounted electric buggy. Unlike most four wheel drive buggies of the time, the drive line is very smooth and out of the way. The belt drive system not only is quiet and smooth but it is also mounted very low inside the chassis not across the top and the bottom. There is also a clear rear gearbox cover so you can inspect the condition of the drive belt without taking the unit apart.
This Hirobo Alien came to me with a couple of bits missing like the hub/wheel locks and a steering servo linkage. I am however relieved to find that the rims and tires on this kit are the originals. The box art shows different solid dish wheels and a tread pattern that differs from what is actually included in the kit. The bumper is however an ill fitted after market part that will need to be replaced during the restoration process.
