Oh, very nice–another re-release of Tamiya’s gorgeous 911 body and short-wheelbase TA-02 chassis, this time in the classic Jagermeister colors. We last saw the car in white back in June of last year, and we like this racing-liveried model even better. Expect a bunch of these to go unbuilt in Tamiya fans’ “NIB” collections, but here’s to anyone who builds it up for a taste of the touring car that started the whole TC scene, in the bodywork of Tamiya’s first-ever RC model.
2016 marks the 40th anniversary of the release of the Vaillant-liveried Tamiya Porsche 934 (Item 58001). It was the first ever Tamiya R/C car model and one which would kick off a major worldwide trend that still continues to this day. This kit is part of the celebrations of that anniversary, and recreates the 934 in distinctive Jägermeister livery. This highly detailed body runs on the short wheelbase and wide stance TA02SW chassis. The kit includes a plethora of option parts to make this a very special release.
The TA-02SW exhibits a short-wheelbase and has a wide track to accommodate the scale form of the real sports car. It normally features a tub chassis with 4-wheel, fully independent suspension coupled with a rear ball differential and a front gear type differential. This special edition is fitted with a double deck FRP chassis for increased rigidity.

- The 934 is recreated stunningly in durable polycarbonate, with separate side mirror and wing parts. Separate light cases are also included.

- The TA02SW chassis was previously used on the 911 GT2 Racing (Items 58172, 84399 and 47321). It offers a short (236mm) wheelbase and wide tread setup; similar to that so often employed by Porsche.
