Length: 373mm. Image shows assembled kit.
Body, motor, tires, R/C equipment, battery pack, and charger are sold separately.

This assembly kit takes the 2-belt driven TA08 chassis and makes it into a race-focussed unit with plenty of Hop-Up Options. It is equipped with a 2mm carbon fiber upper deck, plus a plastic lower deck with reinforcements for exemplary rigidity and superior steering that can be adjusted to your heart's content. A-shaped upper arms and a four-wheel double wishbone suspension setup are employed, while aluminum upper arm mounts ensure great rigidity. The rear body mount section has been stiffened for great traction.

  • The rigid aluminum servo mount minimizes inefficiency.
  • Steering tie-rods are in a linear arrangement to lessen the effect of suspension motion on toe angle. Brigde and arms are aluminum.
  • Aluminum mounts make for great upper A-arm rigidity. Low friction king pin balls are used atop and below the uprights.
  • A close up on the super short big bore dampers. 43mm drive shafts and 4mm clamp-type hex hubs are employed.
  • The 2mm carbon fiber upper deck boosts pitching rigidity. A rear ball bearing lends smoothness to the chassis flex.
  • The aluminum motor mount has upper deck attachment points front and rear.
  • Additional ribs on the lower deck minimize flex. Adjustable suspension mounts are employed.
  • Rear universal shafts use 43mm swing shafts, TRF420 wheel axles and low friction cross joints.
  • Toe control rear suspension helps match toe angle with compressed suspension.
  • Rear body mounts are attached on a carbon fiber plate and aluminum mounts to keep that body from wobbling.
