Tamiya’s TA07 Pro is the newest in a long line of budget onroaders geared to those wanting the thrill of onroad racing without having to shell out the big bux for a high-end TC. However, this car has seen some serious potential on the track, with more and more drivers gravitating from their current Tamiya rides over to this new platform.
Follow along as we complete the project, installing support gear from Futaba and HobbyStar.
