The Tamiya MudMad is the second R/C model assembly kit on the super-compact and fun to drive SW-01 chassis. The body itself is inspired by off-road vehicles and was dreamt up by designer Takayaki Yamazaki who fans of Tamiya will remember from the Dual Ridge kit and other Tamiya vehicles.
SW-01: Super-Compact 4WD
190mm long and 150mm wide, the SW-01 is a compact, highly fun 4WD chassis. A Type 370 motor is central in the slim monocoque frame, with gears transmitting its output to the front and rear of the model, where 70mm tires translate it into a powerful drive. The chassis power source is mounted in the top section to allow wild wheelies under acceleration. Strut type 4-wheel independent coil sprung suspension utilizes single piece upper arms to link left and right wheel steering motion, helping suppress roll during turns, and together with front and rear differentials realize a tight turning circle.
