ENEOS SUSTINA RC F
Model Number: 58595
Fully independent double wishbone
The ENEOS SUSTINA RC F, a Japanese Super GT Series entry car which is based upon the stylish Lexus RC F coupe released in 2014 is the latest subject to come on Tamiya's TB-04 shaft driven 4WD platform.
The TB-04 is a 1/10 scale 4WD machine that incorporates a drive-shaft down the center of the chassis to engage the front and rear gearboxes.
The differentials inside the gearboxes are newly designed as they utilize a sealed gear differential system whereby the internal gears movement is controlled by different viscosity differential fluids.
The double-wishbone suspension system utilizes the same 'short reversible' type that has been used on the TB-03, TA-05 Version II, TA-06 and the TRF (Tamiya Racing Factory) 416 and 417 World Championship machines.
The TB-04 also incorporates 'IFS' (inboard front suspension) whereby the front shocks are positioned horizontally and low to the chassis, so that low profile sports car body shapes can be accurately reproduced without losing any realistic scale appearance.
