The Tamiya M-05 M-Chassis platform receives a significant makeover with the introduction of the NEW M-05 Version II Pro! The M-05 chassis, which was released in 2009, has been a favorite platform for M-chassis club racers for years. The new tweaks and enhancements take advantage of new battery technologies as well as tried and true suspension tweaks used in many of Tamiya’s touring car platforms. Furthermore, it features a number of upgrades, to improve balance and lower the chassis' center of gravity, using a variety of option parts to make it a highly drivable radio control car.
Option Parts Included
Aluminum Steering Post
Aluminum Horn for Hi-Torque Servo Saver
Full Ball Bearings
DF-03 Heat Sink Bar Set
Aluminum Turnbuckle Steering Rod
CVA Oil-Filled Shocks
Semi-Gloss Black Plated Wheels
Aluminum Servo Mount (Blue)
1/10 scale R/C model assembly kit.
New Feature: The chassis is compatible with square-shaped battery packs.
Numerous adjustments have been made to make the M-05 V.2 as lightweight as possible, without sacrificing durability.
New aluminum motor mount designed specifically for the M-05 V.2 chassis.
Chassis, D parts (arm stays and damper stays, etc.) and wheels have a Semi-Gloss Black metal-plated finish.
Body, motor and tires are required and sold separately. Note: Some bodies may require modification.
Motor Position: The motor is fitted to a newly-designed mount and has been moved 4.5mm closer to the center of the chassis when compared to the original M-05. This has the effect of improving weight distribution as well as sharpening steering response.
New Suspension Arms: Newly-designed one-piece suspension arms are made from reinforced plastic. They offer greater durability and contribute to the cars sharper steering responsiveness. Equally important they now allow rebound stroke adjustment with the simple turn of a set screw, giving the driver a range of set-up options based upon driving conditions.
Low Profile Servo Compatibility: The main chassis frame has been redesigned to support the chassis' new functionality. The new chassis design takes advantage of low-profile servos available in the RC market. The servo attachment position has been shifted 8mm downwards to secure a lower center of gravity giving the model more ground hugging performance.
