Eat. Sleep. RC. January 2016 Tamiya Giveaway Car Update

Eat. Sleep. RC. January 2016 Tamiya Giveaway Car Update

The backbone for the January 2016 Giveaway car is Tamiya’s great little TT-02 chassis. This platform is based on a rugged, shaft-driven 4WD drivetrain that is perfect for daily use in your front yard or performance use on a track. It uses an independent, double-wishbone suspension, coil-over dampers and the chassis has been updated to allow the use of current battery technologies (ie, LiPo batteries). The motor, ESC and servo all sit opposite of the battery for excellent balance.

Both the front and rear gearboxes house a fluid-filled gear differential. The included upright assemblies can be assembled for low-riding onroad use or changed to give the TT-02 and additional 4mm of ride height, perfect for Rally racing.

While the TT-02 is designed for the entry-level RCer, the Eat. Sleep. RC. Giveaway Tamiya TT-02 is going to be give a shot of adrenaline with it’s optional electronics from Airtronics and LRP, aluminum bits from Yeah Racing and a custom painted Toyota 86 FR-S body from my buddy Charlie over at CFX Paintworks
