The latest model to appear in the expanding TT-02 chassis line-up is this version of the R&D Sport-run Subaru BRZ, a car entered in the GT300 class of the Japanese Super GT series. While the car retains the general atmosphere of the road-going BRZ, it has been significantly modified for the racing series, with a racy wide and low form. Subaru’s motorsports arm STI tuned the 2-liter 4-cylinder boxer, which has an output of 350ps and impressive torque of 45kgf·m. The car enjoyed positive progress in the 2014 season with a number of promising qualifying performances leading to improved results later in the year. This model recreates the car as it appeared in Round 2 of the season in Fuji.
Tamiya has faithfully reproduced this sleek racing machine in 1/10 scale on the TT-02 entry level touring car chassis. The TT-02 chassis platform is the successor to the TT-01 as it incorporates many new features to make it even easier for the new R/C kit builder to assemble and learn from. The TT-02 chassis performs well as cornering and overall speed has been enhanced to take advantage of new electronics available on the market. In addition to the TT-02 being an ideal platform to start from, R/C hobbyists can expand its potential by adding many of the Ho-Up-Options available to increase the cars speed and performance.
