In the “touring car” category of Tamiya, become the seventh generation of the chassis of the TA series that follows from “TA01” appeared in 1991, with the current line-up, located in the upper level of the entry class of shaft 4WD “TT-02”, shaft both “TB-04” in the 4WD, the positioning of the chassis of the middle class.


With a briefing to introduce the history and evolution of the company’s touring car, Seiwa Suzuki of Takanori Aoki of Tamiya planning and development section Section 1 and Tamiya Planning and Development Department Section 1 is about the development concept and features of the “TA07 PRO Chassis Kit” story did.


In the development of the TA07 PRO chassis kit, it listed three goals and “element should be as a middle class machine,” “combat power more than its predecessor,” “there is no other car new features and design”, the optimization of the left and right of the roll characteristics together with the frame design and Symmetrical design in order to achieve, Giyadefu and suspension arms, adopted parts of the high-end model (TRF419 system) such as the upright. In addition, the assumption that arouse the curiosity as well as playability, remembering the functionality to choose from three motor mounting position.


In the new product briefing venue and became Tamiya Circuit, the machine is ready for three TA07 PRO chassis kit for changing the motor mounting position, which is also available time that can actually feel the difference of the running sense.


For most of the features and made motor mounting position of the product, Mr. Aoki is the difference between handling that had you feeling “today, mainly is due to gyroscopic effect of the motor. In the motor rotor is housed as a rotating object and How can have, higher is the most number of revolutions in the vehicle, it has also become a large mass as a rotating object, “and a description.


In addition, “Actually the fact that handling is changed by changing the position of the motor had been found from the time of the 2000 year. Model at the time 2000 is shaft drive various layouts such as a motor in a vertical position are mounted Although there was, in the scene, such as the world Championships and now, each manufacturer in the form such as TRF419 spoke almost the same layout has been adopted. ”


Then, for it to finish in the middle-class machines that get to enjoy a wide range of layer, Mr. Aoki is because the categories that are exhausted to know whether the run well, “the RC car enthusiasts of the world is what shape the most is the most difficult as the development of products It revealed and did was “the place.


The difference about threefold motor mounting position, Aoki said, “become a strong layout of out kicks to mount the motor behind most, point recommended if the case of the competition,” he said.


For other positions, layout Mr. Aoki to be mounted before the “most is the point unprecedented up to now, and the point of the recommended time because a higher sense of stability direction of the grip of the course layout and the road conditions are difficult you say. in addition, since the layout to be mounted on the middle can be exhibited at any time the characteristics to bend relatively light, I think that the point where the taste is divided. again, RC car enthusiasts with a self-confidence in the arm is the most behind we expect to be taken the motor layout “was and commentary.
