Collaborative Monster Truck Collection Tamiya Karfoot from L’Art de l’Automobile

L’Art de l’Automobile preps for Paris Fashion Week with another limited edition vehicular collection. This time, the French label is partnering with Japanese remote control (RC) toy experts Tamiya for a brief monster truck-inspired T-shirt capsule, complete with a matching toy car.
Each of the three special shirts is emblazoned with co-branding and bespoke “KARFOOT” monster truck imagery, dreamed up exclusively for this release. Long-sleeved and short-sleeved shirts are offered in neutral black and white editions, highlighting the prints on the front and rear of each item. The toy KARFOOT truck was created especially for this collection, a natural follow-up to TAMIYA’s 2018 Hornet collaboration with Supreme. Each item is packed inside a special box to drive home the nostalgic nature of the partnership.
Expect L’Art de l’Automobile to launch the exclusive KARFOOT goods will launch via a temporary PFW pop-up shop, though the remote control car will not be for sale.

Tamiya Rack & Pinion Gear Set – Ideas for use video
This set can be used to manufacture a rack and pinion mechanism that converts rotational motion into linear motion using gears. The pinion gear attached to a 3mm hexagon shaft such as a gear box has a clutch that protects the motor and gear when a large force is applied. It can be applied to various types of work, such as a forklift-like movement or sliding the gear box itself. By combining this with a fun machine series universal arm, you can further expand the ingenuity of movement.
