Dxn Sakura Cup Mini 4WD 2021 Points Series - Sponsored by Tamiya

Tamiya USA - Wed, 03/24/2021 - 11:49

The Dxn Sakura Cup is a Tamiya Mini 4WD point series of races that consists of a total of 5 races held between March through May, 2021. Of the 5 races, 3 will be scored in the Series, allowing competitive drivers to miss 2 races and still be in contention for the win.

All 5 races will be held at Dxn Provisions in Arcadia Ca using the following schedule:

Tamiya is delighted to announce an even further hopped-up chassis in the ever-evolving TA series: the TA08 PRO! This 2 belt-driven 4WD chassis features a Stepped V design and plenty of high-performance parts, that ensure this is a seriously quick chassis that you will love to drive!

TA-08 Details Live Streaming Now!! Tamiya Inc. YouTube Channel

ABOUT THE MODEL

  • This is a 1/10 scale R/C touring car chassis kit.

  • Features Stepped-V shaped chassis which balances weight and rigidity.

  • The battery pack and servo are positioned on a slight angle (about 10 degrees) to reduce surface contact and facilitate optimum weight distribution.

  • Positioning spur gear in front of motor produces stable drivability.

  • 2 belt-driven 4WD uses TRF420 gear differentials and steel TA07 differential joint cups.

  • A-arm suspension arm gives your model a low center of gravity, enhanced with laid down dampers.

  • Camber and caster angles are adjustable by turnbuckle shafts and lower arm spacers respectively.

  • Comes with Super Short Big Bore size shock dampers.

  • Universal shafts and full bearings give efficient drive.

  • Rotating body mounts by 180 degrees switches between standard and 2mm advanced body positions.

Detailed information will be released on the Tamiya Inc. Youtube channel "Tamiya RC Live'' on Sunday March 14 (Japan Time-Saturday evening US time), with additional information on our Tamiya USA homepage on Sunday evening March 14. Please stay tuned!
