Tamiya TB Evo.8 – Coming soon

Over five years on from the announcement of the current TB chassis offering, Tamiya has recently released some details of the up coming Evo.8 version of their popular shaft-driven 4WD touring car.  Expected to be released in November, the TB Evo. series has gained numerous fans since its inception in 2000.  Tamiya say the Evo.8 features numerous advances from the previous generation including TA08 design A-type arms and promises even further evolution of the series.

TB Evo.8

Switch between two chassis layouts (Front-mid and Rear-mid) to get your setup just right.

Carbon fibre lower deck and minimalistic upper decks ensure the chassis has optimal pitch flex.

Features one-piece bulkhead/damper stay components.

One-piece designs incorporate king pin and suspension ball function, minimising suspension play and improving handling feel.

A-arm suspension comes with Super Short Big Bore dampers as standard.

Steering linkage is attached directly to the bulkhead, to mollify effect on chassis roll.

The front uses a direct coupling with WO universal drive shafts, and the rear has a gear differential with aluminium drive shafts.

A carbon fibre R/C equipment deck features an optional aluminium centre stiffener.
