The race-dominating Pirro/Biela Quattro Audi... what better model to introduce the TA03F tub-chassis kit with? Front-engined all-wheel-drive just like the real thing, which won so many touring car races that it was handicapped with extra weight to axle-breaking extremes. But in the wet, FWD/RWD was no match for Audi AWD. [by WillyChang]


The famous German automobile manufacturer's Audi A4 showed impressive performance at touring car races all around the world during the 1996 season. The Audi A4 is equipped with a 2 liter, in-line 4 cylinder DOHC power plant, which produces an impressive 300 horsepower. Unlike the other competitors, it uses a sophisticated four-wheel drive system, which brought outstanding results especially at races in rain. Tamiya's model of the Audi A4 also uses a four wheel drive system just like its full sized counterpart. A powerful 540 type electric motor is mounted on the front for optimized weight distribution, and the power is effectively transmitted to the front and rear wheels via a drive belt. Suspension is a four wheel independent double wishbone type, damped by four oil-filled shock absorbers. [from Tamiya]
