Tamiya presents yet another classic racing car, this time the Toyota Celica GT-FOUR (ST205), combined with the popular TT-02 chassis.

It featured curved body lines and a distinctive front end with four differently sized headlights and a 2-litre 4-cylinder DOHC turbocharged engine capable of 255 hp. The 4WD system used a central viscous coupling and a Torsen differential in the rear upper drive.
In addition, 2,100 Japanese models were produced with an arched rear spoiler.

Tamiya 58736 Ford Baja Bronco CC-02 Chassis official product video

The first generation Ford Bronco was relatively compact and extremely capable off-road, and this 4WD car joined numerous races. This R/C model assembly kit recreates the Baja Bronco, which was sold from 1971 to 1975 to commemorate victory in a major desert race. Its polycarbonate body captures the 1973 Bronco form in style, with a black sticker to use on the engine hood, and plated parts for the front grille, light covers and side mirrors. It can be paired with separately sold LEDs to light up the front and rear.

CC-02 Chassis – Off Road, Evolved
Designed for a wide range of off-road scenes including rocky terrain, the CC-02 chassis’ ladder frame is inspired by full-size vehicles and is the base for its superior durability. A 4WD setup employs the motor longitudinally behind the front axle with separated gearbox and transfer case, and propeller shafts transmitting power to the differential gears front and rear. Four-link rigid suspension is employed front and rear, with CVA oil dampers for all-encompassing control, even on tricky rock sections. This model comes with plated five-spoke wheels and grippy block pattern tires, and is setup for the 242mm S wheelbase.

Tamiya 58628 Racing Fighter DT-03 Chassis official product video

An Open Invitation To Get Racing!
The Racing Fighter is the latest model to appear on the easy-assembly, fantastically fun 2WD DT-03 chassis! Inspired by real-life single-seater buggies, the stylish body has a sleek nose and lowdown cockpit. Body and wing are made from lightweight, durable polycarbonate. Stickers are included to create lively markings and framework depictions along the sides of the nose. The long, slender yet tough frame of the DT-03 is combined with 4-wheel double wishbone suspension plus front ribbed and rear square spike tires. You won’t be able to resist the temptation to take this exciting newcomer racing!

DT-03 Chassis: Great Fun, Minimum Fuss
The stylish slimline form of this chassis stems from its lightweight yet durable monocoque frame, which features a longitudinally-positioned battery and the R/C equipment along the centerline for excellent balance. The combination of a long 287mm wheelbase and 4-wheel double wishbone suspension married to friction dampers with long arms, allows the model to handle with stability on poor surfaces. Ribbed front and square spike rear tires provide ample grip, and the rear-positioned gearbox is sealed to protect from dust and dirt, with the built-in differential gear offering smooth cornering.
