The latest in the TB Evo series that has continued since 2000. The chassis layout that was popular with EVO.7 has been brushed up. The suspension adopts the A-arm type popular with TA08 and appears as an aggressive vehicle.
《About the model》
●Motor mounting position can be selected from 2 locations (front mid/rear mid). ●Optimum pitching rigidity is ensured by combining the carbon lower deck with the smallest upper deck. ●The damper stay extending from the bulkhead is an aluminum integrated type. ●The kingpin ball is integrated with the flange pipe to minimize suspension clearance and achieve high maneuverability. -Equipped with SSBB (Super Short Big Bore) damper for A arm suspension. ●The steering wiper is attached to the bulkhead like EVO.7 to reduce the impact on the chassis roll. ●The drive system uses a combination of a direct shaft and WO universal drive shaft on the front, and a gear differential and aluminum drive shaft on the rear. ●A carbon mechanical plate that can be attached to the aluminum center stiffener is used to equalize the left and right balance of the main chassis.

This is the black edition of the Egress that debuted as a high-end Avante model with the aim of competing in world races. The black tone body, new coloring stickers, dark titanium alumite dampers and uprights further enhance the original Egress luxury. The package is also a special specification based on black similar to “47390 Avante (2011) Black Special”.
