Tamiya has created the brand-new RM-01 chassis in response to the 1/12 scale racing resurgence around the world.
This new chassis features a Direct Drive 2WD setup and a pivot-ball link rear (PBLR) suspension to offer linear throttle and steering response and realistic racing action. Tamiya's 1985 release of the Toyota Tom's 84C is the first body that is outfitted for the RM-01 chassis.
1/12 scale ready to assemble electric powered R/C model racing kit.
Features a 2.5mm thick black-colored FRP lower deck, a height-adjustable resin gear case with type 380 motor. (540 motor may be used when removing stock motor plate)
Pivot-Ball Link Rear (PBLR) suspension system features a center pivot ball, a pitch damper to temper chassis pitch, and a roll damper and side links to control chassis roll. Roll springs can be additionally installed to the side link pivots for more advanced suspension settings.
Attachment of both hex-hub-secured and 3-screw-secured wheels are possible with the RM-01 chassis.
Front independent suspension features optimized kingpin trail.
