Tamiya 58693 TA08 PRO overview video part 2 – initial driving impressions

After a fun-filled day at our local track (Cal Raceway), we sit down and chat a little about our initial driving impressions with the new Tamiya TA08 PRO touring car chassis.

We also touch on the new active-rear-toe adjustment as well as the anti-roll bars. There’s even some on-track run footage from both Fred’s TCS-Spec TA08 and Tony’s Expert 17.5T ride! Both cars look amazing on track!
