May 09, 2014 No Comments by

Tamiya has one of the most diverse product portfolios of any mainstream RC manufacturer, and that trend continues with their three latest unassembled kits, including a “Pro” version of their latest front-wheel-drive Mini platform, a mid-motor 2WD buggy that has proven itself on a world stage, and a limited edition, heavily hopped-up version of their budget-level touring car racer. How’s that for variety?


The TRF201XM chassis used by Tamiya Racing Factory pilot Lee Martin at the 2013 IFMAR 2WD Off-road World Championships is available for racing enthusiasts across the world to drive! The kit features theTRF201 converted into a mid-motor chassis, including modifications beyond those offered by the conversion kit seen in Item 42257 TRF201 XM Conversion Set.

The Tamiya M-05 M-Chassis platform receives a significant makeover with the introduction of the NEW M-05 Version II Pro! The M-05 chassis, which was released in 2009, has been a favorite platform for M-chassis club racers for years. The new tweaks and enhancements take advantage of new battery technologies as well as tried and true suspension tweaks used in many of Tamiya’s touring car platforms. Furthermore, it features a number of upgrades, to improve balance and lower the chassis’ center of gravity, using a variety of option parts to make it a highly drivable radio control car.

About the author

Associate Editor Since receiving my first hobby-grade RC car as a holiday present from my father nearly 20 years ago, I've been fortunate enough to meet more people and experience more opportunities through the adventures I've had in the RC industry than I would've ever imagined. I've done it all - from working at a hobby shop, to being a factory sponsored racer, to working for some of the biggest brands in the industry. I've enjoyed each and every one of the dozens of kits I've built, hundreds of events I've attended, and thousands of laps that I've logged at race tracks around the world, and my passion is to share those experiences with other hobbyists so that they may find fulfillment in their own RC careers.
