Tamiya has announced some more info of their product range from the 56th Shizuoka Model show.

The big announcement is the new M07 concept chassis. This is a race spec chassis, and it might not actually be aimed as a replacement for the M05, but a sister chassis for more serious racers. It only has two wheelbases (225 and 239mm) so the classic 210mm is gone. It comes with an oil filled gear diff, universal drive shafts, CVA shocks and full bearings. It also has new suspension geometry with long arms which will make a big difference in the handling.

Other info is that it is a two part monocoque chassis (like the TA07) and the differential will be able to be easily accessed from the bottom.

It uses TA06 Rear 52t gear differential etc. So it is a totally new drive train.

Really excited to see this, no pics at the moment but here is the info from Tamiya USA

All-NEW M-Chassis coming June 25, 2017!

M-07 Concept chassis kit

Tamiya’s M-Chassis platform have been around since the early 1990’s. Today we proudly announce the ALL-NEW M-07 CONCEPT! This is a revolution in the world of the M-size chassis and not just an evolution. Designed by the same designer who brought the TA-07 Pro Touring Car Chassis to life, this chassis takes a number of design cues from Tamiya’s touring car models and features a largely changed design from its numeric predecessors. The goal set forth with this new platform; ease of maintenance and responsive drive characteristics, all of which were attained during its development. The all-new features incorporated into the M-07 CONCEPT make it a truly rewarding drive for those who would like to experience the excitement of R/C racing.

• 1/10 scale R/C chassis assembly kit. Length: 332mm, width: 164mm.
• The core of the chassis is a 1-piece monocoque with integrated upper frame elements similar to the TA-07 Pro. It is designed to offer excellent rigidity with easy maintenance.
• Choose between 2 different wheelbases (M: 225mm, L: 239mm), simply by changing rear arm attachment direction.
• Newly designed front and rear suspension use long arms for ideal leverage ratio, in tandem with long steering linkage components. Rear toe can be adjusted simply using spacers.
• 4-wheel double wishbone suspension is fitted with CVA oil shocks.
• The TA06 oil-filled gear differential is used to drive the M-07. It is paired with universal drive shafts and full ball bearings.
• Compatible with standard IFMAR (Li-Po cell-type) regulation square-shaped battery packs.
• Compatible with Low-Profile servos.
• The chassis was designed with easy access to the stabilizers (sold separately) for quick, precise adjustments vital at the racetrack.
• Body mounts have a new reinforced design for more secure body attachment.
• The chassis gives its driver excellent “feedback,” allowing you to judge with clarity how your setup changes have impact.
