These kits were found recently by Tamiya in the back of their warehouse, where they had sat undisturbed for some years. The kits are brand new. These kits were sold, as originally manufactured, without engine or electrics. Due to spares support being very patchy on this range of nitro models, having been out of production over 10 years, this is a kit for the enthusiast or collector and not suitable for day to day use. This particular kit dates from 2004.
REPEAT: This is kit 44042 which was manufactured in 2004 and sold without engine. Photos showing engine and electrical accessories are indicative of what you might build once you have added your own parts.
Since the TG10-Mk.1 was released the engine car market has greatly expanded, with a growing number of new comers entering the engine R/C car scene. To answer growing demand for a more advanced nitro chassis that can provide new challenges, Tamiya now releases the TG10-Mk.2, which has been developed based on looking at the performance of the TG10-Mk.1 and TG10R, and customer feedback. Layout has been greatly modified with engine placed on the right side of chassis for improved air intake and exhaust efficiency, fuel tank and other heavy parts placed in the center, and overall center of gravity lowered for improved cornering. About the Model Shaft driven 4WD 200mm wide chassis Layout has been greatly modified with engine placed on the right side of chassis for improved air intake and exhaust efficiency, fuel tank and other heavy parts placed in the center, and overall center of gravity lowered for improved cornering.
