This mini 4WD Roborace DevBot 2.0 racer with MA chassis by Tamiya replicates the exciting DevBot 2.0 as seen from the creators of Roborace. Roborace is an exciting new development in the world of motorsports, testing the limits of autonomous driving in electrically powered vehicles. The DevBot 2.0 is an electric powered prototype racecar running on the Nvidia DRIVE platform designed to aid the development process for cars in the Roborace series. The hardware is managed centrally and is the same for each team, meaning that the only differentiator is the AI driver software the teams develop for the competition. Furthermore, it can be driven by a human or AI driver, meaning engineers can explore the relationship between man and machine for assisted and autonomous technologies. This exciting and cutting-edge race car appears on the Mini 4WD PRO model platform, which is based upon the aerodynamically efficient MA Chassis!
The Ultra-Efficient MA Chassis
The MA (Midship AERO) Chassis has its motor in the center and features a design which focuses upon achieving outstanding aerodynamic performance. It has six individual low-friction rollers, a rear skid bar and other speedy features developed thanks to years of design experience. The single piece monocoque frame also guarantees that assembling and keeping the car well-maintained is a task that can be performed by beginners and veteran racers alike. Here, the MA chassis features a 3.5:1 gear ratio.
