Mitsubishi Lancer EVO IV Monte Carlo
Model Number: 58219
Shaft Driven 4WD
Four wheel independent double wishbone
Clear Lexan polycarbonate
One of the series of Mitsubishi Lancers Evo's that Tamiya have faithfully reproduced. Now the rarest Evo this car runs on the TL-01 chassis. Tamiya's amazing bodyshell is for the car driven by Tommi Makinen on the World Rally Championship. A great looking kit.
General Good points:
Good learner car, infact any TL-01 chassis will do, but this has a simple and strongish body shell. Rock solid chassis.
Comes standard at about final drive of about 7. something good for 20-15 MPH running from standard. This will take any 540 motor (For the newbies). Suspension from standard is rubber dampered coil-over shocks. It is 4WD so it doesn't spin much at high speed (Good for a newbie trying improve his driving).
Kit is all plastic (All running gear is steel/alu except gears). Overall quality is not there, this is probably because the TL-01 is a mass produced car.
