Tamiya TRF103 1/10th formula kit

Tamiya have released first written information and an additional image of their forthcoming TRF103 1/10th scale formula kit that is on show during this week’s Nuremberg International Toyfair in Germany. The high-specification formula chassis is built around carbon fibre lower and upper decks, with front lower and upper arms also crafted from carbon fibre plate. Front camber and caster angles can be altered via the upper arm attachment components. At the rear of the car, there is a choice of 2 suspension types: a link setup for high-grip surfaces; and a T-bar setup for lower grip conditions. Chassis roll is regulated by individual left and right friction dampers, while changing the carbon fiber rear shaft position allows two different wheelbases. The kit is set for a release mid-May.
