Tamiya Mini 4wd 18704 Shadow Shark (AR Chassis)
The fourth installment in the Mini 4WD REV series, the Shadow Shark runs on the new aerodynamically-advanced AR Mini 4WD chassis. The body was designed to squeeze as much aerodynamic efficiency out of the chassis as possible, and the resulting shape is reminiscent of modern Formula racing cars. It features a high nose with an air intake opened underneath, in addition to a shark fin behind the driver, side pontoons and induction pods with air intakes.
The AR chassis is designed to offer its driver durability, customizability and ease of maintenance, all of which are vital ingredients for a successful Mini 4WD racer. Its aerodynamic form smoothly allows air to pass through the chassis interior as the machine runs, performing the vital function of cooling the batteries and motor and extending their effectiveness. The air intakes on the chassis and body are integrated for optimal performance. This high-speed racing chassis also features low-friction plastic bearings to ensure that any loss of power from the engine to the wheels is minimal in nature. The under-panel and diffuser can be removed from the model without taking off the body, while a low-friction rear skid bar is fitted to slash time loss experienced on tricky slope sections, and keep the racer on the track where it belongs. Features a 4.2:1 gear ratio.
