Tamiya released information about their new touring car chassis, the TRF416, a few days ago and now, a few days late, we have it too. The new car is designed to be optimised for brushless motors in conjunction with event-controlled tires but to achieve success under such conditions, a fine balance must be achieved between handling and tire wear. It is with this in mind that Tamiya designers developed the concept of this brand new TRF416 chassis, apparentley. Please note that images show pre release prototype.
