Tamiya M-05 Ver.II R Description

Tamiya USA M-05 Ver.II R product information:

84424 M-05 V.II R Chassis Kit

This is a refined, race-spec version of the popular M-05 Ver.II PRO chassis. It features new, dedicated M-Chassis double-cardan drive shafts, plus a number of option parts including TRF short aluminum dampers. Numerous aluminum parts in the kit have a cool black anodized finish to make the R-Spec version stand out!

The M-05 chassis, which was released in 2009, has been a favorite platform for M-chassis club racers for years. The Version 2 tweaks the proven M-05 with enhancements that take advantage of new battery technologies as well as tried and true suspension adjustments used in many of Tamiya’s touring car platforms. Furthermore, it features a number of upgrades, to improve balance and lower the chassis’ center of gravity, making it a highly drivable FWD radio control car.

Tamiya TB Evo 6 MS Description

Tamiya USA TB Evo 6 MS product information:

84427 TB EVO 6 MS Chassis Kit

The TB Evolution line of shaft-drive 4WD racing machines began its lineage in the year 2000. Since that time, the machines released in subsequent years have evolved. The TB EVO 6 continues that tradition of evolution by introducing new design elements and proven parts from many of Tamiya’s other 4WD touring car platforms.

The TB EVO 6 shares the same drive train as seen in the TB-04 tub chassis machine, which uses a horizontally positioned motor for optimal balance of torque displacement. TRF designers have also incorporated other enhancements to bring club racers the perfect weapon for spec-motor club racing. These enhancements include suspension parts from the TRF418, and parts carried over from the TB-04.

The TB Evo.6 MS takes things a step further! It features a number of aluminum parts, plus Big-Bore dampers. The end result is a highly-tuned performance car, which is right at home on high traction race tracks.

Featured Components:

  • Aluminum Lower Deck
  • Aluminum Motor Mount
  • Aluminum Big Bore Short Dampers
  • Aluminum Suspension Mounts
  • Carbon Fiber Upper Deck
  • Carbon Fiber Damper Stays
  • Front Direct Drive
  • Rear Gear Differential Unit
  • TRF418 Suspension Parts

TRF102 Renault R25 / 2

 

Sorry for the low level of activness on here at the moment. Not much happening really…in addition to other stuff taking my time.

What you see in the following pictures is really all that has happened with regards to my personal RC activity in the last month.

As you can see the TRF102 Renault R25 project has progressed a little, in that I have fitted some Muchmore electric stuff; Fleta Euro ESC, Fleta ZX 21.5 motor and a new FD2 4000 low height lipo. And I fitted the Serpent rear wing and diffuser that was missing for so long.
