Active Hobby Products have expanded their range of option parts for the Tamiya TA07 Pro touring car. First up is a new aluminium transversal chassis stiffener. The CNC-machined and blue or black anodised part connects the outer chassis rails and thus makes for an overall increased chassis stiffness. The part weighs in at a lightweight 8.5g and it is a direct fit.
Japanese company Active Hobby Products have introduced their new wide flange M4 wheel nuts for 1/10th on-road and off-road cars. Offering an increased diameter of 11.3mm, compared to the 9.6mm of most flanged M4 nuts, the parts allow for a more secure wheel fitment while also reducing wobbling issues associated with small diameter nuts. At 5mm they are also thicker than many fasteners and a serrated back section grips into the wheel’s surface for greater security against unintended loosing than standard nyloc nuts. The wheel nuts come in sets of four, in the five colours of black, blue, red, orange and silver and due to their diameter they may not fit all wheels on the market.
Active Hobby Products have introduced the liquid bottle marker, a dedicated container and applicator for tyre traction compounds. Featuring a specially shaped square-type foam applicator that helps to apply tyre sauces more evenly, the bottle is usable with touring and formula rubber wheels but it is also good for the use with 1/10th and 1/12th foam tyres.
Japanese company Active Hobby Products have released two new option parts for Tamiya’s TA07 Pro touring car in the form of a carbon fibre bumper brace and an aluminium bend protection. Starting with the bumper support, the carbon fibre brace helps to keep the foam bumper in place during heavy racing action while also supporting the body mount posts. The CNC-machined part is a direct replacement usable for all TA07-style bumpers.
Japanese company Active Hobby Products have introduced new option parts for the Tamiya TA07 Pro touring car kit. First up is an aluminium motor plate machined from high-quality material and coming blue or black anodised. Extra machining makes for a lightweight yet sturdy construction that also incorporates belt tensioner functions thanks to adjustable pulley and bearing holder shafts.
Japanese company Active Hobby have introduced several new option parts for the Tamiya TRF419 and TA07 Pro. Starting with the TRF419 parts, available soon are two sets of inner suspension pin weights that attach for the front and rear A-arm pins. Machined from heavy brass material and coming with a black and golden finish, the weights help to fine-tune the weight balance as they add weight to the lower part of the chassis but they do not hang over like FF or RR brass suspension brackets. They add about 3.5g of weight and they come in sets of two for the front or the rear of the chassis and they are also usable with the TA07 Pro.
Coming from Active Hobby and made for the TA07 Pro club-level touring car are several aluminium and carbon fibre option parts. First up is a transversal aluminium chassis stiffener that connects the outer chassis side rails for improved torsional stiffness. The part comes machined from high-quality aluminium, in blue or black colour and it includes mounting hardware.
Active Hobby Products have introduced their progressive shock system for the TA07 Pro touring car and other kits using long TRF shocks. Making use of a common system the set includes two inner tubes with triangular cut-outs and plain shock pistons with the cut-outs allowing the damper fluid to bypass the shock piston for a progressive damping characteristic once the shocks start to compress. The set includes two tubes and pistons usable both on the front or the rear of the car.
