Today is May 25th, 2013. The current time is 5:44 AM.
Tamiya 58554 1/10 RC Petronas SLS AMG GT3 TT-01 Type-E
Tamiya 58555 1/12 RC Le Mans Mazda 787B No.18 1991 (RM-01 chassis)
Tamiya 84328 1/10 RC Jimny TamTech Gear Assembly Kit (SJ30)
Tamiya 84329 1/12 RC Datsun 280ZX Street Custom (M-05Ra chassis)
Nothing on the Tamiya website yet, though.
The Petronas AMG looks awsome; indeed a nice piece of machinery
Also the Mazda (RM01) looks good.
Yes, weird that Tamiya didn’t post anything yet, also no live photos of the wheelie Unimog yet.
Agree, both the Petronas and Mazda scheme look great!
Wow, Petronas looks awesome! But Datsun is weird… Why Tamiya makes RWD cars on FWD chassis? Datsun has enough space on rear for M-06
Maybe because their handling (especially off-road) is easier???
This new RM01 bodyshell is very nice and shows that this chassis is well considered by Tamiya.
The Mercedes is a good thing for those who complain about the lack of modern bodies.
Don’t want to be too negative about the Datsun and the Jimny, so, I would simply say that it’s not my cup of tea.
I also forgot to say that Datsun does not look a good as 1:10 version.
About offroad use, first, RWD is not only driveable, but it’s much more fun. I drove M-04 on gravel, it was surprisingly stable. M-06 must be much better with all weight on rear.
Second thing is, why they made this body on Ra version, when it’s apparently street car.
More rear weight can be a disadvantage at low traction surfaces, one of the reasons rear-engined 1:1 cars weren’t very successful at rallies.
On the rest I agree and personally also prefer my http://tamiyablog.com/2010/05/a-fictious-datsun-240z-rally-version/
I think that RR cars were succesfull at their classes, but their number in races was very minor compared to classic layout.
Also, in RC physics works little differently, I’m racing with RWD and more weight on rear makes car more undesteery and stable, with perfect acceleration. It’s driveble on rallycross track and tarmac, too. Only problem is on slippery tarmac or wooden floor, but that’s problem for all RWDs
Are these the only pics from the show?
I would very much like to see how the rearwing is mounted on the Mazda 787B.
I was hoping Tamiya had some more pics from the show including a rearveiw of the Mazda. Or maybe they will update later.
