 Tamiya has incorporated its proven components into a new, unique 1/12 scale R/C chassis design. This chassis combines the TA05 2-belt driven 4WD drivetrain with a 210mm wheelbase (overall chassis length: 292mm) and has a carbon-fiber double deck layout. It also features an aluminum motor mount which holds the front mid-ship motor and spur gear. The TA05 gearboxes are equipped with oil-filled gear differential units (37T) and the suspension uses M-chassis components such as suspension arms, universal shafts, and aluminum dampers. Separate suspension mounts are used to enable easy suspension toe-angle adjustments as seen in many of Tamiya's touring car platforms. The steering setup features durable aluminum components for precise control. The TA-05 M will be compatible with existing M-Chassis bodies that meet the 210mm wheelbase.
