East Coast ProDrive Tamiya 801 option parts

ProDrive Tamiya 801 option parts

These new Tamiya 801 hop-ups from East Coast Bodies sub brand ProDrive were designed in conjunction with factory driver Victor Wilck for light weight, maximum durability and great looks. The hard blue anodized alloy steering posts save weight but still provide strong precise steering response, while the alloy center drive cups, axles and Titanium inner diff gear shafts all reduce critical rotating mass for quick acceleration and maximum punch. Also new from East Coast Bodies is the pre-painted Viktor Wilck replica of their new 801 body shell that we featured previously in half painted form.
