Some extra details and bonus of the upcoming Tamiya 58664 Ford Mustang GT4

To commemorate Tamiya America’s 30th Anniversary (and honor our late founder, Mr. Masayuki Tamiya), we’ve released the Mustang GT4 modeled after the full size car meant for sports car championship racing series (like IMSA Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge).

In addition to the box markings, there is also a commemorative sticker and literature sheet included.

DESCRIPTION
Inspired by the Ford Shelby GT350R-C, the Ford Mustang GT4 has been designed and engineered jointly by Ford Performance and Multimatic Motorsports to compete in sports car championship racing series globally, including the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge, Pirelli World Challenge GTS/GT4, and GT4 European Series.

The Tamiya Ford GT4 faithfully captures this sleek racing car as a 1/10 scale radio control replica. The highly-detailed polycarbonate body sits atop the easy-to-build Tamiya TT-02 chassis that you can customize for added performance!

TT-02 Chassis:
The shaft-driven 4WD TT-02 chassis employs a longitudinal layout with the battery on the left and the motor on the right, to give excellent stability. In addition, it features identical left and right suspension arms and uprights for ease of assembly, plus easy-to-maintain gearboxes. It is a highly adaptable chassis, as it offers 2 different wheelbases, 2 ground clearance settings and 2 tread set-ups in addition to a range of 10 possible gear ratios. It is not short on looks either, with brake disc-shaped wheel hubs and stylish front bumper supports.

    Noticed that the kit was commemorating Tamiya America and also a tribute to the late Mr. Masayuki Tamiya. After Mr. Masayuki passed away in 2017, who was the right-hand man (and possibly future successor) of Mr. Shunsaku right now?

    Please put forth to whom ever does the scale models that this subject would be most welcome as a 1/24 full detailed scale model. As of now there is no full detail kit for the Gen 6 Mustangs.
    I’m sure I am not the only one what would line up to buy many of these should they make it to 1/24 production.
