Once again this is machine translated info.

54505 Big Bore Damper (Rear 2pcs.) for Buggy
54504 Big Bore Damper (Front 2pcs.) for Buggy

Big bore damper appearance!
I improve the quality of driving in a more supple suspension.

Increased to 12mm from 10mm to the cylinder bore, about 40% up the oil capacity. Gap drivability is improved by this, and to absorb shock effectively to large input of jump landing, etc., I can expect to shorten the lap type. Cylinder lubrication HL High Court, spring retainer blue anodized aluminum.

– spring, piston, rod guide using the big-bore only.
– spring, oil is not included.

TRF201 that I aimed at the 2013 IFMAR Off-Road World Championship win.
11mm long wheel base metal chassis adoption!

Three years from the debut of 2010. In performing the racing activities TRF, and dared test while exploring various possibilities. I have developed a conversion parts to achieve the “chassis of narrow and long wheel base” which was derived from it.

★ I adopt the lower deck with the (A7075) aluminum material of high strength, achieve a reduction in road surface interference by the narrow of the improvement of the running stability of long wheelbase by (+11 mm).
★ subjected to hard-anodized, lower deck surface up the durability.
★ side guard which also serves as the adjustment of chassis rigidity parts machined resin with high accuracy.
★ battery corresponds to the size straight, and separate type. Can also be selected mounting position. The use of standard front and rear suspension, a wealth of options can also be used as it is.

The set includes (planned);
– Aluminum lower deck
– Carbon battery plate
– Aluminum battery posts
– Aluminum front post

Tamiya TA06 MS CAD Picture

A decent CAD image of the the upcoming 84352 TA06 MS Chassis Kit.

Too bad it is not as extreme of a modification compared to the normal kit as the TA05 MS kit from some years ago. Alu bulkheads, carbon damper stays and a 3 belt low-cg drivetrain and I might have been tempted to get one… 😉
