This is the DCR-02, which is Tamiya’s second generation of multi-piece mix and match body designs. The futuristic 3-part body in this kit was designed by legendary Japanese designer Takayuki Yamazaki of PDC Designworks. This particular model is based upon the midship aero MA chassis, which is a competitive modern racing platform.
The Ultra Efficient MA chassis
The MA (Midship AERO) Chassis has its motor in the center, and features a design which focuses upon achieving outstanding aerodynamic performance. It has a gear ratio of 3.5:1, 6 individual low-friction rollers, a rear skid bar and other speedy features developed thanks to years of design experience. The single-piece monocoque frame also guarantees that assembling and keeping the car well-maintained is a task that can be performed by beginners and veteran racers alike.
