The latest addition to Tamiya’s on-road R/C touring car product line is the TA06 PRO, which was created with input from the world championship-winning TRF (Tamiya Racing Factory) team. Tamiya started the modern touring car standard with the TA-01, which was first released in 1992. This is the 6th generation 4WD chassis, which features a totally new layout design that offers excellent balance.
The motor and battery are mounted along the centerline of the chassis with the radio gear positioned on either side. The DUAL-DRIVE SYSTEM features belt-driven front and gear-driven rear wheels. The gear-driven wheels offer sharp throttle response and improved acceleration. The battery pack can be accessed from the underside of the chassis for convenience. The refined Inboard Front Suspension (IFS) setup can also be changed to a standard outboard setup thanks to the kit-included damper stay parts. Front and rear gearboxes are equipped with newlydesigned gear diff units to efficiently transmit motor power and offer superb traction and acceleration.
