Hot of the press is the all-new Tamiya Squash Van with GF-02 chassis. True Tamiya fans will quickly deduce the inspiration of the new body was the Tamiya Midnight Pumpkin and underneath is a new chassis.
ABOUT THE MODEL
Tamiya is delighted to announce a new off-road car featuring big tires named the Squash Van and it is paired with a new gear-driven 4WD GF-02 chassis. While the GF-01 chassis features a comical design, the GF-02 chassis employs a more realistic wheelbase and a frame with ladder / pipe motifs. This RC assembly kit is inspired by 1950s American panel vans and offers an excellent drive even on grass or uneven surfaces. It features 123mm large-diameter lug pattern tires that allow great performance and superior handling. Stickers feature designs such as squash illustrations, product logo, and triple pin stripes in gold, black and blue. Tamiya includes an ESC and 540 brushed motor.
ABOUT THE GF-02 CHASSIS
The gear-driven 4WD GF-02 chassis features its motor in a low, central position in the lightweight, durable monocoque frame, and transmits power to front and rear via gears. The long wheelbase and wide tread setup ensures stable off-road performance. The slim frame features ladder/pipe motifs and features integrated sealed gearboxes which help keep stones out. Front and rear gear differentials allow smooth cornering, while separately sold pinion gears offer a choice from three types of gear ratios, and a motor guard enhances reliability off-road. The 4-wheel double wishbone suspension employs four friction dampers, and the steering servo is positioned on the left with identical-length tie-rods
