Introducing the featured sections of Tamiya Mini 4WD JAPANCUP 2019 Miracle Baron Circuit videos

Miracle Baron Circuit 2019
Miracle Baron Circuit 2019, the setting for the 2019 Japan Cup. Of the three layouts available: North (North), East (East), and West (WEST), the layout of North will be used as an example to introduce the whole story!

Digital Zone 2
Two consecutive digital dragonbacks are placed between the four digital corners to shake the machine up, down, left or right. The key is how to prevent the slowdown in this section on the first lap and the stability at the time of entry into the section on the second and subsequent laps on which the speed was applied.

New Era Turn
A corner bearing the name of Cap brand New Era that supports Champion Cap. The point is to pass the corners smoothly to accelerate the machine towards the second half of the course.

Kicker flap
A special section with a flap type jump platform whose angle changes depending on the machine weight. There is also a fear of a big jump → course out as the light machine jumps upward without the flap falling down. The reaction weight and angle of the flap may differ depending on the venue.

Fujitsu Pop
Japan’s 90th curve “Fujitsu Pop” with the name of the Fujitsu battery that provides the Japan Cup. A sharp curve section that looks easy, but doesn’t look like it looks as the machine passes at high speed.

Rising Phantom Changer
Rare Section “Phantom Changer” is further evolved. The caution section where speed and power are required that the machine on the speed climbs a gentle slope and lands on a wide landing, and then runs up a steep slope with an angle of 60 degrees.

Balancing straight
The straight is much wider than usual. The road surface on both sides of the course is lower than the central part, and if you do not go straight, the chassis will contact the road surface, resulting in significant speed loss. The section where the straight running stability of the machine is asked.

Last turn
The last turn following the balancing straight. How much speed can I keep after passing a rising phantom changer or a balancing straight? And it is the border of the game whether the machine that reached the highest speed can withstand the cornering of the last turn.

Miracle Baron Circuit 2019 Onboard video
“North (North)”, “East (East)”, “WEST (West)” in order, introduce the video of the on-board camera that ran the Miracle Baron Circuit 2019. Identify the circuit characteristics in each layout pattern and prepare for the tournament!

Tamiya 70233 Twist Crawler (2-Channel Remote Control) official product video

The 18th Tamiya World Modelers Contest Winners

Super Kids Land Award Touring Shuji Tatsuya

The 18th Tamiya World Modelers Contest was held. This time the day of bringing in works overlapped with the local event, and despite the crowded area around the Super Kids Land Main Store in Osaka Nihonbashi, which was the venue, a very large number of works of 137 points were gathered. Shuji Ashiya’s “Touring” was awarded the Super Kids Land Award. This is a big work with 1/6 motorcycles, African twins and lights. The Tamiya Prize-General Division, who caught the eye in vivid colors, “Mizutama” of Satoshi Nakata. As its name suggests, it is not only eye-catching to the emerald-colored paint, it is a work full of attractions such as piping and accessories detail-up that have been added to the engine room. Tamiya Prize-Military category is Masaaki Mizobe’s “F-4EJ Kai Mitsubishi Special”. In addition to the reproduction of the rare paint shown after IRAN (regular maintenance), the painting and the work were also wonderful works that were remodeled from the EJ product to the EJ Kai according to the actual machine. I tend to look at big works, but there were also small but interesting works. At first glance, Tani Noriyuki’s work “YZF-R1 mini” looks like a normal motorcycle work, but do you feel uncomfortable? This work, labeled “mini,” cuts down on various parts of the base YZF-R1. The wheel is balanced and made by itself, and the cowl is molded with a light-curing putty. The finish was so natural that there were a lot of inquiries about small bike products. In addition, delightful works such as challenge works and scene works to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the MM have won awards this year.
