Tamiya has finally revealed the SUPER AVANTE: a brand new 1/10 R/C 4WD off-road buggy model built on the newly designed TD4 chassis and a stylish body inspired by the classic Avante and produced by my Japanese friend Kota Nezu who is a popular industrial designer who has already collaborated with Tamiya for several Mini4WD models.
Check the preview below!
・Length： 338mm, height： 124mm, width： 246mm. Wheelbase： 283mm.
・Newly designed shaft-driven 4WD chassis based on the one-piece monocoque frame features the same ball
differentials for front and rear, and features a longitudinal battery pack position in the center and a midship
transverse motor for optimum balance and improved performance.
・The TD4 chassis also employs an front inboard suspension layout which eliminates the need for a front
damper stay and offers slim, low-profile form.
・The four wheel double wishbone suspension system uses CVA oil dampers for superlative performance.
・Features full ball bearings.
・Two link rods and crank arm transmit movement of the left-side servo to the three-piece steering arm setup.
・Turnbuckle shafts for use with upper arms facilitate camber angle adjustment.
・Star dish wheels are paired with square spike tires which offer superlative grip off-road.
・Choose between high and low type wing stays to adjust the downforce depending on the road surface.
