To commemorate Tamiya America’s 30th Anniversary and in honor their late founder, Mr. Masayuki Tamiya, Tamiya have introduced the TT-02 Mustang GT4 kit. Inspired by the Ford Shelby GT350R-C, the Ford Mustang GT4 has been designed and engineered jointly by Ford Performance and Multimatic Motorsports to compete in sports car championship racing series globally, including the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge, Pirelli World Challenge GTS/GT4, and GT4 European Series.
The Tamiya Ford GT4 features the shaft-driven 4WD TT-02 chassis. It employs a longitudinal layout with the battery on the left and the motor on the right, to give excellent stability and in addition, it features identical left and right suspension arms and uprights for ease of assembly, plus easy-to-maintain gearboxes. It is a highly adaptable chassis, as it offers 2 different wheelbases, 2 ground clearance settings and 2 tread set-ups in addition to a range of 10 possible gear ratios.
The Tamiya Ford GT4 comes with Tamiya Torque Tuned motor and a Tamiya TBLE-02S speed controller capable of running sensor brushless motors and brushed motors alike. The polycarbonate body and front and rear light cases are molded in polycarbonate while wheel arches are pre-cut out for a simpler body assembly experience. The stickers are included to create an original livery, as are masking stickers for use when painting. In addition to the box markings, there is also a commemorative sticker and literature sheet included.
