The TB-04R is the racing version of the popular TB-04 Chassis platform. The kit comes with many of the hop-up option parts that have been developed to enhance the performance of the car. All plastic FRP (fiberglass reinforced parts) have been replaced with carbon reinforced plastic for superior feel and durability on the race track.
The TB-04 is a 1/10 scale 4WD chassis that incorporates a center drive shaft which engages the front and rear gearboxes. The differentials inside the gearboxes are the latest design as they utilize a sealed gear system whereby the internal gears movement is controlled by a specific viscosity of oil for optimal performance. The TB-04R comes with a front direct coupling (Spool) and the standard rear sealed gear diff unit.
The double wishbone suspension system on the standard TB-04 utilizes the same short reversible type that has been used on the TB-03, TA-05 Version II, TA-06 and the TRF (Tamiya Racing Factory) 416 and 417 world championship models. The TB-04R is equipped with TRF418/419 suspension components.
The TB-04 also incorporates "IFS" (inboard front suspension) whereby the front shocks are positioned horizontally and low to the chassis, so that low profile sports car body shapes can be accurately reproduced without losing any realistic scale appearance. The TB-04R is also equipped with front and rear carbon plate shock towers for added durability.
