T.O.P. Racing Sabre FD chassis
T.O.P. Racing have sent us the first CAD images of their new Sabre FD, which is due for release in March. This front wheel drive chassis is designed as a more professional type chassis for the Tamiya FF02 class. The drive train is front gear driven, with the gear ratio & gears compatible with the Tamiya FF02 and use universals and wheel hubs from its bigger brother, the Photon. The suspension parts too are borrowed from the Photon as well as the rear bulkheads and differential. The car utilizes a super narrow and low CG chassis designed specifically for front wheel drive racing and uses the Photon LiPo battery balancing and guiding system. T.O.P. are also planning to release a pro kit for the M05 class and Mini 4wd touring class by the middle of this year, called the Sabre Mini FD and Sabre Mini 4wd respectively.
