Tamiya TA05 M-Four Chassis Kit (LIMITED EDITION)

The Tamiya TA05 chassis has been a favorite mid-level 4WD touring car platform since 2005. Tamiya has incorporated its proven components into a new, unique 1/12 scale R/C chassis design. This chassis combines the TA05 2-belt driven 4WD drivetrain with a 210mm wheelbase (overall chassis length: 292mm) and has a carbon-fiber double deck layout. It also features an aluminum motor mount which holds the front mid-ship motor and spur gear. The TA05 gearboxes are equipped with oil-filled gear differential units (37T) and the suspension uses M-chassis components such as suspension arms, universal shafts, and aluminum dampers. Separate suspension mounts are used to enable easy suspension toe-angle adjustments as seen in many of Tamiya’s touring car platforms. The steering setup features durable aluminum components for precise control. This chassis is designed for use with Item 55105 Tamiya LF Battery LF1100-6.6V Racing Pack (M-Size) Note: Battery is not imported into the USA. See below for substitute compatible battery packs. (TBA) The TA-05 M will be compatible with existing M-Chassis bodies that meet the 210mm wheelbase.

  1. I would really love to get my hands on one of those!!! SUBLIME!

  2. Looks pretty cool. Really wondering how it’s going to work. I’ll have to get one and give it a go!

  3. The only downside so far would be that the nice alu bulkheads would be plastic in the kit….
    They looked so great in the pictures and with such a price you would expect them to go all the way on this kit… So next to the kit I will also have to put the options on the wishlist. Bummer…
