Further Evolved Race-Spec Chassis, TA05 ver.II
The chassis width has been reduced for greater ground clearance when the chassis rolls. Thanks to the position of the integrated motor mount, the position of the battery pack has been moved forward, resulting in optimum balance and enhanced handling. The drivetrain features front and rear 37T ball differentials and an 18T center pulley. The four wheel double wishbone suspension system features an inboard front suspension layout with short reversible suspension arms and uprights which have 1050 ball bearings. In addition, the separate suspension mounts help to achieve easier maintenance and setting changes.
Maintenance is made easier thanks to the front and rear separate suspension mounts.
Newly designed aluminum die-cast motor mount and chassis enable narrower width.
The chassis is designed as narrow as possible and is equipped with the TRF416's urethane bumper.
