Tamiya 1/10 TRF102 Black Edition EP F1 Chassis Kit #84432
This is a "BLACK EDITION" of the TRF102 Formula One Chassis kit. All the aluminum parts are anodized in black, whereas the original kit was anodized in the world-famous Tamiya Blue.
The TRF102 is the second-generation high-performance Formula One chassis designed by Tamiya's elite designers. This iteration is a revolution! The kit features a number of changes to provide superior performance especially with rubber tire applications and outdoor track use. Both the front and rear of the car have been redesigned to fully utilize the flexibility of the chassis, with the effect of excellent road holding and response.
Key Design Points: The New T-Bar design provides a progressive roll damping effect superior to that offered by the spring-actuated side links on the TRF101. The roll point ball has been placed in as low a position as possible, in order to maximize damping effect. 2 thicknesses of T-bar (1.5mm and 1.8mm) are included.
The brand-new pitch axle gives vastly improved, independent pitch damping, letting the chassis deal much more smoothly with undulating surfaces.
Servo mount screws are attached closer together on the lower deck. This, in combination with the floating battery mount, allows greater expression of lower deck flexibility, giving the feeling of greater stroke at the front of the car. A new servo stiffener keeps the servo firmly in place.
Slits are cut into the lower deck to further enhance its flexibility. The roll damper has been moved closer to the lower deck, giving a more compact rear and contributing to the chassis' low center of gravity.
