This R/C model assembly kit depicts the MAZDA3, which was unveiled to the public at the 2018 LA Auto Show. Its elegant form is largely inspired by the Mazda Kai Concept car exhibited in 2017 at the Tokyo Motor Show. The flowing 5-door fastback body is recreated in lightweight and durable polycarbonate, with stickers recreating front grille, headlights, signature wing and more. Masking stickers are provided in the kit to aid with the paint job. This kit runs on the proven TT-02 chassis, which has a hard lower deck component molded in red. Tamiya logo stickers are also included.
|TT-02: Adaptable, balanced shaft driven 4WD
The shaft-driven 4WD TT-02 chassis employs a longitudinal layout with the battery on the left and the motor on the right, to give excellent stability. In addition, it features identical left and right suspension arms and uprights for ease of assembly, plus easy-to-maintain gearboxes. It is a highly adaptable chassis, as it offers 2 different wheelbases, 2 ground clearance settings and 2 tread set-ups in addition to a range of 10 possible gear ratios. It is not short on looks either, with brake disc-shaped wheel hubs and stylish front bumper supports. 10-spoke wheels are paired with tread-patterned racing radial tires.
