This 4WD R/C off-road assembly kit buggy inherits its name from the iconic Tamiya R/C model Avante. The model features front inboard suspension for lower ground clearance and slim, low-profile form. Its chassis employs a shaft-driven 4WD drivetrain with midship transverse motor and full bearings with front/rear ball differentials. The curved body lines are designed by Kota Nezu, and separate parts are included to recreate buttress structures at the cockpit rear. Small fenders are included for all four wheels.
The TD4 is a shaft-driven 4WD buggy chassis which employs front inboard suspension for slim, low-profile form. It features a longitudinal battery pack position in the center and a midship transverse motor for optimum balance and improved performance. The drivetrain uses full bearings, and sealed front/rear gearboxes have built-in ball differentials. Two link rods and crank arm transmit movement of the left-side servo to the three-piece steering arm setup. 4-wheel independent double wishbone suspension utilizes CVA oil dampers. Turnbuckle shafts for use as upper arms facilitate camber angle adjustment. Two types (high/low) of wing stays are included and star dish wheels are paired with square spike tires which offer superlative grip off-road.
