Tamiya 1/10 MF01X Suzuki Jimny JB23 Metal Blue Printed Body EP Car Kit #58621
This version of the popular Suzuki Jimny MF01X kit comes with a Metallic Blue painted body. It allows radio control modelers to concentrate on building their car while leaving the paint task to the Tamiya experts at the factory.
The MF01X is a compact chassis that revolutionizes the M-Chassis genre. The Jimny body that is mounted on the chassis, of course, has been on sale as one variant or another since 1970, gaining numerous fans thanks to its versatility and toughness. The JB23 depicted by this model is one of the 3rd generation Jimnys introduced in 1998 which had a modernized, rounded body design. It featured a feisty little fuel injected, turbocharged 658cc engine and was a popular car in the domestic Japanese market.
Power is transmitted from the rear mounted motor to the front wheels via a propeller shaft that runs down the side of the MF01X. Gearboxes are integrated into the monocoque for a sturdy and easy-to-assemble structure.
The MF01X has a three-section make-up; changing the central spacer section enables short (210mm), middle (225mm), and long (239mm) wheelbases. Item 58614 uses a middle wheelbase; option parts Item 54654 is needed to change to a short wheelbase, and Item 54655 when changing to a long wheelbase.
Yeah Racing Aluminum Long-Span Suspension Arms And Knuckles Performance Upgrade Kit For Tamiya MF01X #TAMC-S07BU
Yeah Racing is now introducing the Aluminum Long-Span Suspension Arms And Knuckles performance upgrade kit for Tamiya MF01X as well too. Inspired by competition touring car designs, Yeah Racingís team of RC enthusiasts worked on this kitís design through day and night, with repetitive product testing and modification on several prototypes. This range of hop ups will enable your car to be faster, more stable and better grip performance.
This innovative design by Yeah Racing, changed the front and rear suspension arms to be 36% longer than the original arm, bringing the lower arm line forward, aiming to bring you better stability than the parts on the car originally. While the extended arm is stretched forward, the track width is designed to remain unchanged.
When you consider making partial upgrade for your Tamiya MF01X, make notice that the extended arm is specially designed and is not compatible with original C-hub and knuckle set. It is highly recommended to get the extended arm along with the connecting parts, or the whole kit for best performance.
Yeah Racing has also taken the initiative to improve the C-Hubs by installing a ball bearing on the kingpin, a mechanical element that reduces friction between moving parts, thus giving you a smoother steering option.
Not only the arms have been extended, C-Hubs have been upgrade with ball bearing, the rear hub/knuckle arm has also been upgraded to a Toe-In 3 degree design. The Toe-In 3 degree on the rear hub/knuckle arm will allow your car to have an increased straight-line stability and on-power stability at corner exits and braking at corner entries. It can also diminish the chances of losing rear traction to achieve better stability when cutting corners.
All parts are made of durable CNC aluminum and are available in metallic ice blue color.
The original camber links were too high and resulted in ineffective handling characteristics. by introducing a new Rear Camber Link Mount we improved the camber link position to be more like the tried and proved designs of touring cars. By changing the design, adjustability also has been improved through lowering the roll center of the car thus increasing stability.
