This is a VERY rare car I believe. It's a prototype called TRF 211X made by the TRF-staff at Tamiya Japan back in 1993. A friend of mine (Johnny Pedersen), and TRF-driver back then got this car for the European off-road championships in 1993. The cars were based upon the DynaStorm, but featured many modified parts and special CNC-machined parts. The DynaStorm were a bit heavy, so a lot of the modifications were concerned about weight-savings. As can be seen in the pictures the car uses the plastic-chassis that is known from the DynaBlaster. It also featured a special body that fitted the slimmer chassis better. The biggest change in comparison to the DynaStorm is the much shorter suspension-arms and the wider front bulkhead and wider chassis at the rear to accomdoate these arms. All these special parts were CNC-machined by the TRF-employes back in Japan. These shorter suspension arms were made for tracks that were smooth and fast, with not too many humps and bumps. Other modifications you can see in the pictures are the shorter front-dampers, with damper-stays with much more adjustment options, you can also see some of the areas lightend, if you take a closer look at the gearbox. As can be seen in the pictures the car has been raced (as it was meant to be), but it has been kept in a very good conditon.
