Splash

Get ready to race with the new TB-04 Pro touring car chassis from Tamiya!

OVERVIEW

The TB-04 PRO chassis is the successor to the TB-03, and this race circuit touring car inherits its efficient shaft-driven 4WD system with a newly developed, horizontally-positioned motor placement design. The chassis features a number of newly-designed parts and provides a blend of speed and handling that R/C racers are sure to enjoy at their local track.

The TB-04 shares the same double wishbone, independent suspension parts as seen on the TB-03, TA-05 Version II and TRF 416/417 series of proven chassis designs.

The TB-04 Pro measures 190mm in width and it will accommodate any of Tamiya’s replica and fully licensed Touring and Sports Car body sets.

KEY FEATURES

  • This is a limited edition 1/10 scale R/C model assembly kit. Standard base kit to be releases soon after.
  • Newly-designed transmission case helps to provide increased stability during acceleration.
  • The main chassis frame has a low center of gravity while offering minimized contact with the track surface.
  • Oil-filled and sealed gear differentials (front and rear).
  • New differential gear features 40T ring gears and 16T bevel gears for excellent transmission.

  • Newly-designed battery holder provides simple and secure attachment.
  • AMB transponder can be accessed from the chassis underside.
  • Users can choose between inboard and outboard front suspension. Inboard front suspension allows the use of low profile body sets.
  • Features a new motor guard to protect the motor from impacts.
