Blurry pictures of Tamiya's upcoming TA06 Pro chassis appeared on tamiyablog.com last night. The chassis features an interesting layout with a central battery pack, rear motor and TA05IFS-style laydown front shock absorbers. The electronics such as receiver, steering servo and speed controller are located on each side of the battery pack. The TA06 Pro will appear sometime in May in Japan meaning a European release should be not too far away.

Looks good, but is anyone else thinking it's the illegitimate son of the TA05-ifs, TA04, and the Losi JRXS?

I was thinking front is HPI Cup Racer, rear is HPI Pro 3. :lol:

Should have a nice balance though, but not convinced about laydown front shocks, apart from the Revo and the old Predators, the only benefit is for low-nose bodies.

Which came first, the Pro 3 or the TA04? ;)

Tamiya like to sell expensive bodies. What better way than make sure most of their bodies fit most of their cars? XD

Who else thinks that tamiya need to make more buggys? and perhaps a truggy instead of on-road?

The problem is that Tamiya's UK distributors refuse to admit that the TRF range even exists, except for the TC's. So you probably didn't know they make 2 different 1/10th 4wd buggys (the belt drive 511 and the shaft drive 502) plus a 2wd (201) and a 1/8th buggy and truggy too.

i just had that discusion with my brother ^_^ tamiya uk is based in Milton Keynes, but do diddly squat on the offroad side.

The trf801x is a great buggy, however try getting spares :lol: as the offroad side is all in america :confused: look at the drivers list on an american national and there are loads of tamiyas, in the uk, i think ive only ever raced against a handful of them :)

Even more ironic since UK and Euro 1/10th offroad champion Lee Martin races for Tamiya! In actual fact, Lee is responsible for supporting TRF products in the UK himself, since he is supposed directly by Tamiya (not the importers) and was displeased with the level of UK support for the cars he promotes. There was a rumor Lee was going to be campaigning the 801 as well as the electrics, which if true means more spares for the 801.

Elliot Harper is in the same boat for the touring cars side, driving for Tamiya directly rather than for HobbyCo.

For the record, the Pro 3 came before the TA04. :good:

RC TA06 PRO Chassis Kit - TA06
Item #58492 (COMING SOON)

The latest addition to Tamiya's on-road R/C touring car product line is the TA06 PRO, which was created with input from the world championship-winning TRF (Tamiya Racing Factory) team. Tamiya started the modern touring car standard with the TA-01, which was first released in 1992. This is the 6th generation 4WD chassis, which features a totally new layout design that offers excellent balance. The motor and battery are mounted along the center-line of the chassis with the radio gear positioned on either side. The DUAL-DRIVE SYSTEM features belt-driven front and gear-driven rear wheels. The gear-driven wheels offer sharp throttle response and improved acceleration. The battery pack can be accessed from the underside of the chassis for convenience. The refined Inboard Front Suspension (IFS) setup can also be changed to a standard outboard setup thanks to the kit-included damper stay parts. Front and rear gearboxes are equipped with newly-designed gear diff units to efficiently transmit motor power and offer superb traction and acceleration.

Specs and Features
- Oil filled TRF Special Dampers (Hard Black Coating aluminum shock bodies)
- 4WD, independent double whish bone suspension system
- Re-buildable Universal Drive Shafts
- Low-Friction Drive Belts (174mm, 453mm)
- Aluminum Motor Plate
- Full Ball Bearings
- Aluminum Turnbuckle Shafts (Blue)
- Aluminum Ball Connectors (Blue)
- Hi-Torque Servo Saver (Black)
- The motor is installed at the mid-rear position which helps improve traction for the rear wheels.
- Comes equipped with aluminum motor plate and aluminum spur gear holder from the TA-05 chassis platform.
- Compatible with TA05 and TA06 touring car and sports car body sets
- Suspension parts from the previous TA-05 platform are used on the new TA-06. (short reversible suspension, steering blocks, castor blocks and optional aluminum suspension mounts) are all transferable
- Molded plastic parts are made of durable FRP (Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic)
- Chassis battery compartment is compatible with NiCd, NiMh, LiFe and LiPo battery technologies.
- The battery pack can be accessed from the underside of the chassis by removing the battery cover.
- Standard outboard suspension is possible with the kit-included damper stay parts.
- Note: Body, wheels, tires, motor, battery/charger and R/C radio gear sold separately.
