More photos and details of upcoming Tamiya 42315 TB Evo.7 Chassis


・This is an R/C 1/10 scale shaft-driven 4WD chassis assembly kit. Length: 371mm, Width: 185mm, Wheelbase: 258mm.
・The chassis is based around a 2mm thick aluminum lower deck and 6mm thick center stiffener, which give a blend of rigid pitch damping and flexible roll. The number of screws used to attach the stiffener can be changed to alter chassis rigidity.
・The lack of an upper deck lowers the chassis’ center of gravity.
・A largely overhauled layout includes updated motor positions and bulkhead design.
・The motor is longitudinally mounted. Users can choose from 3 layouts (front; mid; rear) to adjust performance depending upon conditions and driving style.
・Comes with TRF super short big bore dampers.
・Motor clearance can be adjusted simply from above, for quick in-pit tweaks.
・Steering linkage components are installed directly onto the bulkhead as opposed to being attached to the chassis. This removes any effect upon chassis roll.
・Highly-efficient shaft-driven 4WD is achieved with a front direct coupling and WO universal shafts, plus a rear gear differential unit and aluminum drive shafts.
・Proven TRF418 suspension arms and TRF419 rear uprights are employed.

Tamiya 70227 Cam Program Robot Set Video


This assembly kit creates a robot whose movement can be programmed by the use of cam parts. The dual motors power triangular tracks and left/right arms in unison. Cams are inserted into the central program bar, and as it is pushed through the model by the program bar gear, the position of the cams is translated to the steering legs, which are lifted off the surface and cause the robot’s motion to change. ★Different assembly patterns create 2 different types of motion. ★Program bars give approximately 35 seconds of movement each, and can be joined together for longer patterns. ★Includes everything needed for easy snap-fit/screw-together assembly. ★Requires one R6/AA/UM3 battery (sold separately).
