Tamiya F103GT Toyota Gazoo Racing TS050 Hybrid

Tamiya USA have announced the RC replica of the Toyota GAZO Racing TS050 Hybrid. The World Endurance Championship race car competed throughout the WEC 2018-2019 season and this specific kit celebrates Toyota’s first ever win at the famed 24 Hours of Le Mans. The Tamiya replica sits atop the 2WD F103GT Chassis, which is easy to build and maintain, thanks to its simple 2WD direct drive system with grippy rubber tyres that supply plenty of traction. The chassis’ FRP double-deck frame employs 1.5mm upper and 2.5mm lower decks, cushioned by link-type arm and coil spring left/right independent front suspension. An FRP T-bar is the centrepiece of the rigid rear suspension setup, working in tandem with the friction plate and coil spring unit to provide a smooth drive. The height adjustable gear case allows a range of ground clearance settings, and contains a high-performance ball differential. Front uprights give a 3 degrees caster angle, and are equipped with 850 ball bearings. The kit is set for a release in January 2019.
