The Toyota 86 has been a highly anticipated sports car since the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show. In 2012 the vehicle was finally released to markets around the world. In Japan it is known as the Toyota 86. In Europe it is known as the GT-86 and in the USA and North America it is known as the Scion FR-S. The new Toyota 86 R/C body is mounted on Tamiya's proven mid-level chassis kit, the TA-06.
The latest addition to Tamiya's on-road touring car product line is the TA06 chassis, which was created with input from the world championship-winning TRF (Tamiya Racing Factory) team. Tamiya started the modern touring car standard with the TA-01 which was first released in 1992. The 6th generation 4WD chassis features a totally new layout design that provides excellent all round balance.
The motor and battery are mounted along the center-line of the chassis with the radio gear positioned on either side. The dual drive system features belt-driven front and gear-driven rear wheels. The gear-driven wheels offer sharp response and improved acceleration. The battery pack can be accessed from the underside of the chassis for convenience.
The refined inboard front suspension (IFS) setup can also be changed to a standard outboard setup thanks to included damper stay components. Front and rear gearboxes are equipped with newly-designed gear diff units to efficiently transmit motor power and offer superb traction and acceleration.
