Tamiya Porsche 934 RSR 10th Anniversary TAMICO Vaillant Limited Edition TA02SW Kit

Tamico´s 10th Anniversay. Let´s celebrate. With a very special model: Porsche 934 RSR Vaillant TA02SW This model, composed by us, is based on the Tamiya Black Porsche RSR Kit No. 47362, but has the green attachments and the Vaillant decalset of the equally limited 30 year Tamiya RC Porsche 934 TA05 Kit 49400.
The kit is numbered and strictly limited to 333 pieces.
The basis for this model is the TA02SW chassis (SW stands for short / short wheelbase and wide / wide rear track) and is equipped with a variety of tuning parts.

Option Parts Included:
53142 Aluminum Motor Mount
53152 Hard Propeller Shaft
53166 FRP Chassis Set
53193 FRP Front Damper Stay
53194 FRP Rear Damper Stay
53806 Ball Diff Cup Joint for Universal Shaft

This is a 1/10 scale R/C model assembly kit. Length: 435mm, width: 202mm, height: 130mm.
The evergreen form of the 934 is recreated stunningly in durable polycarbonate, with separate side mirror and wing parts. Separate light cases are also included.
Comes with an LED light unit to light up headlights and taillights for the ultimate realistic appearance.
The TA02SW chassis was previously used on the 911 GT2 Racing (Items 58172, 84399 and 47321). It offers a short (236mm) wheelbase and wide tread setup; similar to that so often employed by Porsche.
This kit uses the FRP chassis set, which transforms the chassis into a double deck unit using rigid and lightweight FRP material parts.
FRP front and rear damper stays ensure optimum performance from the CVA oil damper-fitted 4-wheel double wishbone suspension.
The stainless steel propeller shaft is highly durable and offers efficient transmission of power, particularly in combination with the front and rear assembly universal shafts, which come with ball diff cup joints.
Enclosed front and rear gear cases have built-in diff gears. The rear is fitted with a ball differential.
Comes with 2-piece wheels, tires and inner sponges. The rear of the model uses wide wheels.
Full ball bearings.

TRF Race Report 1/10 Electric RC Touring Car All Japan Championship including first test results with prototype of the TA 07 MS

2018 JMRCA Japanese National Championship (1:10 Electric Touring Car)
July 20th-22nd 2018
Shirakaba 2in1 Circuit, Nagano, Japan

Kiyokazu Suzuki and Takayuki Kono attended the 2018 JMRCA Japanese National Championship to support drivers of Tamiya cars at the event, also taking the opportunity to race a prototype of the TA07 MS. There was great news in the Open Class, as young speedster Takuma Sasaki and his TRF419XR took an imperious overall victory, following on from his wins in last year’s Sports Class and the Tamiya R/C World Championships. He was fast all weekend, with the top time in three of the six qualifying sessions and second fastest in two more, then putting the opposition in their place with victories in the first two rounds of the final. His victory was the first for a Tamiya car in this class at the JMRCA Japanese National Championship since 2012. Fellow TRF419XR drivers Shuma Shinozawa and Masaaki Honda finished 5th and 6th overall respectively to cap a great weekend. Kiyokazu Suzuki also competed in the Open Class, achieving 11th overall with a prototype of the new TA07 MS, while in the Super Expert Class, Shinya Shimazaki demonstrated the TRF419XR’s potential with a 9th place overall finish.
