Tamiya 58632 Team Hahn Racing MAN TGS (TT-01 Type-E). Radio Controlled Kit
This is an exciting R/C model assembly kit recreating the Team Hahn Racing MAN TGS truck which stars on the truck racing circuit in Europe. The realistic body is a 4-piece set made from lightweight and durable polycarbonate, with separately moulded plastic side mirrors, coupler and rear bumper parts. The TT-01 Type-E chassis is a proven performer, and here is fitted with dedicated new wheels and tires for the model.
The bathtub frame of the evolved shaft-driven 4WD TT-01 Type-E has its motor and battery close to the ground for lower centre of gravity and optimum balance. Mounted on the bathtub frame is a fibreglass reinforced nylon upper deck and gear covers improving rigidity, as well as a 3-piece tie rod providing a smoother steering action. The low centre of gravity, great balanced design, 4 wheel double wishbone suspension system, and front and rear differential gears all come together to produce excellent operating ability. 70mm-diameter radial tires are paired with metal plated wheels developed just for this model; the high sidewalls make for forgiving turns.
Features include beautifully detailed plated wheels and 70mm-diameter tyres, detailed engine, turbocharger and frame and separately moulded side mirrors, coupler, etc. Light cases for headlights are provided, and can be lit up with the aid of separately sold LEDs. Plenty of Hop-Up option parts are available! Multiple stickers are included to recreate markings.
This model measures 438mm (length) by 190mm (width) by 207mm (height) with a wheelbase of 257mm. The tyres are 28mm (width) by 70mm (diameter). It has a bathtub type chassis frame with a longitudinally-mounted motor shaft-driven full-time 4WD. There are F/R 3-bevel differentials, a 3-piece steering tie-rod, 4-wheel double wishbone suspension and f/r friction dampers. It has a gear ratio of 8.35:1. It has a type 540 Motor that requires an electronic speed controller (sold separately).
