GP Chassis TGX-Mk.1 TS w/Tamiya OPS VR-15S Engine
Model Number: 44002
Four wheel indpendent double wishbone
Chassis Kit no body supplied
Released 17/11/1994 the first of the new Tamiya TGX range, and the second Tamiya Nitro kit released (the TR-15t being the first). Tamiya hadn't made a 1/8 scale kit since the B2B racing sidecar way back in 1979. Fitted with an OPS VR-15S engine the new TGX was issued with no body. Tamiya made a variety of bodies but the most popular was the 50565 1/8 Alfa Romeo 155 Ti shell. As the TGX range grew more bodies became available. This was the only kit to have the OPS VR-15S with the red heatsink head as very quickly the FS-15LT took over.
