Mercedes-Benz SLS GT3 AMG (TT-02) - item no. 58566

Overview

The SLS AMG GT3 is a racecar version of the September 2009-released Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, and it is supplied to racing teams around the world. The aluminum long-nose, short-deck body is fitted with gull-wing doors and the functional interior features a roll cage. Down-force is provided by the front spoiler, large rear wing and rear diffuser, while the transaxle layout uses a sequential 6-speed transmission to transmit power from the front-mounted 6.2-liter V8 engine to the rear wheels.

Tamiya has faithfully reproduced this sleek racing machine in 1/10 scale on the TT-02 entry level touring car chassis. The TT-02 chassis platform is the successor to the TT-01 as it incorporates many new features to make it even easier for the new R/C kit builder to assemble and learn from. The TT-02 chassis performs well as cornering and overall speed has been enhanced to take advantage of new electronics available on the market. In addition to the TT-02 being an ideal platform to start from, R/C hobbyists can expand its potential by adding many of the Ho-Up-Options available to increase the cars speed and performance.

Overview

This is the first off-road buggy to be released on the new TT-02B chassis platform. The TT-02B is based on the TT-02 entry level multi-purpose platform designed to be easy to assemble for first time R/C kit builders. While the main tub chassis and 4WD shaft drive-train are the same as the TT-02, the suspension is new to accommodate off-road rugged running.

Volkswagen Beetle (M-06) - item no. 58572

Overview

The Volkswagen Beetle needs little introduction to most people around the world. A record 21 million Beetles were produced over a production period spanning 60-plus years, and the distinctive rounded form of the car is a familiar sight. It was the brainchild of the famed German designer Ferdinand Porsche, and the iconic car saw military service during the Second World War. The R/C model of this car was released in 1996 on the M-04 chassis. The 2013 model now sits on the modern and highly popular rear wheel drive M-06 chassis platform.

The M-06 chassis platform features fully independent double wishbone suspension. The chassis is made of polycarbonate plastic while key suspension components are made of nylon. The shock absorbers are the friction type, which can be replaced with oil dampers. Three gear ratios may be chosen to suit the motor type while the battery compartment accommodates modern square type battery technologies.
