 Review: Tamiya 1/16th scale radio controlled M4 Sherman tank
The manual for the Sherman is considerably thinner than the instructions for a lot of other Tamiya kits, but that's because it frequently says things like "repeat 12 times" or "make 6" or, in the case of the tracks, "do this 76 times, then do the other track".
The Sherman is powered by a standard six cell "stick pack", but the chassis is roomy enough that you could mount a variety of different battery configurations.
The Sherman is also tailor-made for rule abuse at meets that have an "anything by Tamiya that isn't a monster truck" race, or a run-what-you-brung novice class.

 M4 Medium Tanks
Shermans equipped with the 75mm main gun were at a serious disadvantage, as by 1944, this weapon lacked the lethality and accuracy necessary to duel with most German tanks at typical engagement ranges.

Aside from its improved main gun, the only other significant difference of this variant of the Sherman is reduced ammo storage; due to the larger bulk of the 76mm projectile, it could only carry 71 rounds.
