Tamiya USA TB Evo.7 Details + Release

42315 TB EVO. 7 Chassis Kit
Release Date: October 20

This is the 7th generation TB EVO chassis. The new look TB EVO. 7 takes this chassis series, which is the pinnacle of Tamiya shaft-driven 4WD, in a brand-new direction: multiple selectable motor positions, the removal of an upper top deck with a stiffener used on the chassis deck in its place.

Features:

•1/10 scale shaft-driven 4WD chassis assembly kit.
•The chassis is based around a 2mm thick aluminum lower deck and 6mm thick center stiffener, which give a blend of rigid pitch damping and flexible roll. The number of screws used to attach the stiffener can be changed to alter chassis rigidity.
•The lack of an upper deck lowers the chassis’ center of gravity.
•A largely overhauled layout includes updated motor positions and bulkhead design.
•The motor is longitudinally mounted. Users can choose from 3 layouts (front; mid; rear) to adjust performance depending upon track conditions and driving style.
•Equipped with TRF super short big bore dampers.
•Motor clearance can be adjusted simply from above, for quick in-pit tweaks.
•Steering linkage components are installed directly onto the bulkhead as opposed to being attached to the chassis. This removes any effect upon chassis roll.
•Highly-efficient shaft-driven 4WD is achieved with a front direct coupling and WO universal shafts, plus a rear gear (oil-filled) differential unit and aluminum drive shafts.
•Equipped with TRF418 suspension arms and TRF419 rear uprights.

Specifications:
Length: 371mm
Width: 185mm
Wheelbase: 258mm
