Tamiya 1/10 TD-2 Astute 2022 2WD Electric Off Road RC Buggy Kit - 58697

2022 TD-2 Astute

Truly Awesome!

This 2WD R/C off-road assembly kit buggy inherits its name from the 1980s Tamiya R/C rear-wheel drive model "Astute." The low-profile, sleek body is designed by Kota Nezu of znug design. The model features a driver figure in the cockpit and individual front/rear small fenders. Two types (high/low) of wing stays are included to adjust downforce. Based on a monocoque frame chassis with midship motor and battery pack position toward the rear, the Astute 2022 utilizes front ribbed and rear square spike tyres.

Tamiya brings yet another off-road buggy to its vast library of high-performance and fun to build R/C kits. This is the Astute 2022, which is based on the new TD2 chassis.

TD-2 chassis at a glance

The new TD2 chassis is based around the TD4 chassis. Just like the TD4 machine, it employs a front inboard suspension layout which offers exceptionally slim, low-profile form. Its front suspension arms have a skid angle of 25 degrees, for amazing ground-hugging and stable performance, plus CVA oil dampers to allow smooth suspension movement. Furthermore, the chassis is based on a one-piece monocoque frame, uses the same ball differential as the ones used on the TD4 chassis, plus full ball bearings are used throughout the driveline. The battery pack is positioned transversely and positioned to the rear. Finally, a midship transverse motor layout with 3 gears connecting it to the drivetrain provide optimum balance and improved performance. Choose between low & high wing stays to adjust downforce depending on the road.
