Tamiya RC 58387 Avante Mk.II (DF-03)
The original Avante 4WD racing buggy was a sensation when it made its debut onto the R/C scene, thanks to its high-performance parts and futuristic body form. This legendary R/C buggy has now evolved and utilizes the shaft-driven 4WD DF-03 chassis, which features a more efficient suspension design. The body styling is inspired by the original Avante, and high-density spike tires at all four corners ensure excellent off-road grip.
Race-Ready Shaft-Driven 4WD DF-03 Chassis: The monocoque frame DF-03 chassis features a centrally positioned battery with R/C mechanisms located to the right and left for optimum weight distribution. With even the oil dampers located within the wheelbase, the chassis offers the high stability needed for high-speed cornering. High-precision ball differentials are mounted at both front and rear compact gearboxes, and along with the full ball bearing setup helps maximize transmission efficiency. In addition, the 4-wheel double wishbone suspension utilizes long arms for ground-hugging performance and a choice of upper arm and damper attachment locations for customized race settings.
Quick Battery Changes: The battery is located in the lowest point of the chassis for the best center of gravity and balance. A quick-access hatch allows speedy battery changes at the track.
Full Ball Bearings: A total of 27 ball bearings, including size 1510 bearings for ball differential joint, size 1150 bearings for axles, and size 950 bearings for gear shaft are included for optimum transmission efficiency.
Front/Rear Ball Differential: For maximum traction on rough terrain, both the front and rear compact gearboxes are equipped with high-precision ball differentials.
Long Suspension Arms: These specially-designed parts help provide excellent suspension performance and feature multiple attachment points for settings customization.
