540 Torque Tuned
The TT-02 chassis line-up is Tamiya's entry level 4WD platform.
It allows new kit builders an easy gateway into the world of on-road running due to its easy construction, balanced performance and high aftermarket Hop-Up Option support.
This TT-02 kit features the Subaru Impreza rally car that took part in the Monte Carlo Rally of the 1999 World Rally Championship (WRC) season.
The Impreza was a legendary force in the WRC from the 1990s and into the next millennium, with 3 manufacturers' championships in a row from 1995-1997.
In 1999 they were still competitive with an impressive 1-2 finish for drivers Kankkunen and Burns in Argentina (round 7).
The TT-02 chassis incorporates many features to make it easy for the new R/C kit builder to assemble and learn from.
The TT-02 chassis performs well, as cornering and overall speed has been enhanced to take advantage of new electronics available on the market.
In addition to the TT-02 being an ideal platform to start from, R/C hobbyists can expand its potential by adding many of the Hop-Up Options available to increase the cars speed and performance.
