Tamiya new releases at 51th All Japan Model Hobby Show October 2011 tamiyablog competition – win an RC Tamiya Sand Rover 2011
Ah, pictures from the Hobby Show, just what the doctor ordered 😉 Thanks guys!
I am quite keen on the RM01. Are there any hop-up options for this chassis?
From what we saw for now only few blue anodized aluminium parts and a 540 motor.
Sorry, I forgot my signature in my first post 🙂
Tamiya might release some hop-ups later on, and other bodies, like the Porsche and the Tornado.
Or maybe some new ones? We will just have to wait and see. 🙂
Here are the hop-ups https://tamiyablog.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/tamiya-51-hobby-show-2011-30.jpg
Will anybody know then a big rc-fair will take place 2012
Next international fair is in Nuremberg in February, as every year we will report from there.
Just looking at the beautiful pictures, any idea why they use a 380 sized motor on the M FOUR chassis ? Will we be able to fit 540’s ?
it seems that 380 motors are used because batteries and motors and getting more and more efficient and powerful, same as at 1/12 pan car racing the number of battery cells was reduced in the last years.
Despite that the M05 M-Four is a limited edidtion, I leaned today that Tamiya are developing some new 1/12 bodies for the this particular chassis.
These bodies I can’t wait to see 🙂
Yes, its written on the Japanese site 🙂
We are also curious and hope they look better then the 1/12 Silvia.
On the Japanese site? I found the information on the english part of the Tamiya website and it was news to me. 🙂
And yes, better then the 1/12 Silvia, please Tamiya 😉
