Tamiya TRF801XT Competition truggy

Tamiya TRF801XT Competition truggy

Tamiya USA have released details about their new 801XT truggy, including some very small photos which unfortunately don’t reveal too much detail. The 801XT is a 1/8 sale competition level assembly truggy kit, designed and tested in Southern California, USA. The highly efficient drive system comes from the optimized placement of the front and rear propeller shafts. The drive line is virtually straight which offers the most efficient drive-line possible in its class. The 801Xt chassis has plenty of adjustability to fine tune it for the most demanding of race tracks across the globe. TRF drivers from all parts of the world will be piloting this new competition level truggy in the coming months in an effort to exploit its potential and further develop the new line of 801Xt options soon to come.
