The TA06 chassis has been upgraded to the next level. This Tamiya TA06 MS chassis kit features newly-designed carbon fiber components such as the 2.5mm thick lower and upper decks, as well as 2mm thick R/C mechanism plates, further increasing the overall rigidity of the chassis to enhance performance at high-speeds.
It also features a new front aluminum drive shaft mount. The drivetrain has a front direct coupling (spool) and double-cardan drive shafts. In addition, the servo position is switched to the right side in order to optimize chassis balance.
The latest addition to Tamiya’s on-road R/C touring car product line is the TA06 MS, 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 center-line 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 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 newly-designed gear diff units to efficiently transmit motor power and offer superb traction and acceleration.
