It was the first ever Tamiya R/C car model and one which would kick off a major worldwide trend that still continues to this day.
This kit is part of the celebrations of that anniversary, and recreates the 934 in distinctive Jägermeister livery.
This highly detailed body runs on the short wheelbase and wide stance TA02SW chassis.
The kit includes a plethora of option parts to make this a very special release.
The TA-02SW exhibits a short-wheelbase and has a wide track to accommodate the scale form of the real sports car.
It normally features a tub chassis with 4-wheel, fully independent suspension coupled with a rear ball differential and a front gear type differential.
This special edition is fitted with a double deck FRP chassis for increased rigidity.
Porsche 934 HISTORY
The Porsche 934 was introduced for the 1976 racing season for the European GT Championship and U.S. Trans Am racing series.
It was manufactured for two years, 1976 and 1977, with at least 400 being manufactured to meet homologation regulations of Group 4 GT class cars.
The Turbo RSR Type 934s as well as the 935 were raced in the Deutsche Rennsport Meisterschaft, the predecessor racing series to DTM, in a distinctive vivid orange 'Jägermeister' livery, which was field by the Max Moritz Team.
The 934 was based upon the 930 Turbo. Fitted with a large turbocharger, a water-cooled intercooler, and K-Jetronic mechanical fuel injection system, the flat-6 engine was under the horizontally-positioned cooling fan in the same way as seen in the 917 and 908, for optimum cooling effect.
Thanks to such modifications, the engine's power was boosted from 260hp to 485hp and at the same time its torque was nearly doubled from 35kgm to 62kgm.
The car also featured independent torsion bar suspension with resin bushings and coil springs, adjustable front and rear stabilizer rods, and ventilated disc brakes with aluminum calipers.
The sleek body featured flared fenders and a large front spoiler with air intakes for the oil cooler in the center, intercooler radiators on the left and right, and rounded brake cooling air intakes.
