Tamiya Mini 4WD 1/32 Cyclone Magnum Memorial (Super TZ-X Chassis) -Full Cowl Mini 4WD 25th Anniversary

Memorial machine filled with thoughts of 25 years
It is a plastic model assembly kit of a high-performance racer that adopts a shaft drive four-wheel drive. The Cyclone Magnum Memorial is a limited version of the Cyclone Magnum, one of the most popular full cowl mini 4WD models. The body, which features compact front and rear cowls and powerful rear wings, is made of clear polycarbonate to create a machine that not only feels special, but also has improved driving performance. In addition, the chassis adopts the white-colored Super TZ-X, which engraved the commemorative logo of “FULLY COWLED MINI 4WD 25th ANNIVERSARY” on the bottom. The suspension is a combination of fluorescent green spiral spoke wheels and black low-height tires. Blue, red and yellow coloring and machine name logos are set with clear stickers.

Super TZ-X Chassis
The Super TZ-X chassis (1999) is a further evolution of the Super TZ chassis (appeared in 1996) adopted in the first Cyclone Magnum (19412) familiar to the full cowl mini 4WD generation. Appearance). Medium wheelbase and wide tread with excellent straight running stability. The point of pursuing aerodynamics is that the bottom of the chassis is flat and the side guards are wing-shaped. In addition, a 2-point fixed rear roller stay is standard equipment, and a screw hole is added to the front bumper. I’m looking forward to improving performance with a wide variety of upgraded parts. The gear ratio was set to 3.5:1.

First official photo and description of Tamiya 47430 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra R 1995

This Tamiya R/C kit pairs a classic body and the proven TT-01 Type-E chassis. The body depicts the Ford Mustang SVT Cobra R, which was a special version of the Mustang that was produced by Ford’s Special Vehicle Team (SVT for short).

TT-01 E Chassis
The bathtub frame of the evolved shaft-driven 4WD TT-01 Type-E has its motor and battery close to the ground for lower center of gravity and optimum balance. Mounted on the bathtub frame is a fiberglass reinforced nylon upper deck and gear covers improving rigidity, as well as a 3-piece tie rod providing a smoother steering action. The low center of gravity, great balanced design, 4-wheel double wishbone suspension system, and front and rear differential gears all come together to produce excellent operating ability. 70mm-diameter radial tires are paired with metal plated wheels developed just for this model; the high sidewalls make for forgiving turns.

Coming soon! December 2019

Get ready to do some fun trail exploration with the all-new Tamiya CC-02 (Cross Country 2) chassis platform! Tamiya’s designers have been hard at work to bring R/C enthusiasts the next generation of Tamiya trail driving with a completely revamped machine.
The first body to grace the capable new chassis is a highly-detailed polycarbonate recreation of the Mercedes-Benz G 500, which first graced the Mercedes stable of SUV’s in 2018.

• 1/10 scale R/C model assembly kit. Length: 455mm, width: 196mm, height: 207mm. Wheelbase: 267mm.
• TLU-01 LED Light Unit and LEDs included in export version.
• G 500 body is recreated accurately in polycarbonate. Separately molded parts are included for the front grille, side mirrors and spare tire cover.
• Designed for a wide range of off-road terrain including rocky surfaces, the CC-02 chassis’ ladder frame is inspired by full-size vehicles and is the base for its superior durability.
• A 4WD setup employs the motor longitudinally behind the front axle, with separated gearbox and transfer case, and propeller shafts transmitting power to the differential gears to the front and rear.
• Twenty gear ratios between 11.09:1 and 29.28:1 are possible using separately sold pinion gears, for some serious fine-tuning!
• 4-link rigid suspension front and rear, with CVA oil dampers.
• Differential Gears: 3-bevel differential gears provide a smooth driving. They can also be locked (with reassembly) for driving on poor surfaces.
• Axle Housings: Housings enclose a central differential gear and axle shafts in a rigid setup that lets the chassis take on rough terrain with ease: if one wheel rises, the other is pushed downward to help the chassis gain traction.
• Gearbox: Power from the motor is routed via the realistic looking gearbox and transfer case, from its propeller shafts to the differential gears, and finally to the wheels.
• 4-Link Suspension: A rigid setup employs 4 plastic link arms on each axle housing and four oil dampers. This ergonomic design offers superior durability and the ground clearance.
• Includes: Tamiya TBLE-02S ESC (electronic speed control) Capable of running sensor brushless motors and brushed motors alike. (21.5 Turn BL motor limit) (23 Turn brushed motor limit.
