Tamiya TB Evo.7 – Coming soon

Following a first official teaser another image of Tamiya’s forthcoming TB Evo.7 has appeared on the interweb. The photo shows what is understood to be the production version of Tamiya’s top-of-the-foodchain shaft-driven 4WD touring car. Said car features pretty bulky front and rear gearboxes with polycarbonate covers and ball-raced anti-roll bars, TRF419X-ish bulkhead covers and camber link mounts, short shock absorbers and also an aluminium main chassis but no top decks. The most noticeable change compared to the previous TB.Evo kits though is the mid motor design with the motor and electric such as speed controller and receiver swapping positions while the main gear also made a move way towards the front end. This also results in the main battery positioned much towards the backend. Much like the bulkheads, the aluminium floating servo mount is of a pretty bulky design. The reversed steering bellcranks are attached directly to the front transmission box to reduce the influence of chassis flex. The latter is controlled by a 6mm centre spline that allows for adjustable torsional flex but limited pitch flex. Furthermore the chassis allows for three different motor positions of front, mid and rear while the suspension components are a mix of TRF418 arms and TRF419 uprights. We bring you more information on the kit as soon as they surface.
