After building our TD4 Super Avante, we knew Tamiya was up to something with some of the extra pieces in the box. Well, now we know – introducing the Astute 2022 TD2, a 2WD version of the Super Avante.
Most of the rear of the car is the same as the TD4 – gearbox, shock towers, shocks and driveline. What’s different is the front clip, which Tamiya has swapped out with a more conventional 2WD system while still retaining the laydown shocks.
What We Like:
The TD4 is a fun car and does have some track prowess, if that’s your thing. Adding a 2WD ride into the mix should provide a more nimble drive in both bash and race situations. We’re also interested in the traverse battery position – wondering if we could mix-and match parts on the TD4 to use this layout!
What We’re Not Sure About:
While I love the fenders, I wish their mounting situation was a bit more robust. The ones on our TD4 lasted 1 1/2 battery packs and they were toast – I’m imagine we’ll be in the same boat with these as well.
