Exclusive Tamiya CC-02 4x4 scale chassis First Info

The Tamiya CC-01 invented the scale crawler scene in 1993. It has been a massive favourite, and now after 26 years it looks like Tamiya will be releasing a CC-02 which will be a very different chassis.  Here is the info.

1/10 R/C Mercedes-Benz G 500 (CC-02)

Get ready for a newcomer to the Tamiya off-road chassis line-up – the CC-02 is here! Even better, its first model comes with a brand new body that depicts the Mercedes-Benz G 500, a 2018 addition to the German auto giant's legendary G Class that was powered by a 4-liter V8 twin turbo engine.

About the Model

  • This is a 1/10 scale R/C model assembly kit. Length: 455mm, width: 196mm, height: 207mm. Wheelbase: 267mm.
  • The boxy form of the G 500 is recreated accurately in polycarbonate, with separately moulded parts included for the front grille, side mirrors and spare tire cover.
  • Designed for a wide range of off-road scenes including rocky terrain, the CC-02 chassis’ ladder frame is inspired by full-size vehicles and is the base for its superior durability.
  • A 4WD setup employs the motor longitudinally behind the front axle, with separated gearbox and transfer case, and propeller shafts transmitting power to the differential gears front and rear.
  • Twenty gear ratios (Yes 20!) between 11.09:1 and 29.28:1 are possible using separately sold pinion gears, for fine-tuning!
  • 4-link rigid suspension is employed front and rear, with CVA oil dampers.

Detailed introduction to the CC-02!

3-bevel differential gears not only give smooth drive, they can also be locked (with reassembly) for driving on poor surfaces.

Housings enclose a central differential gear and axle shafts in a rigid setup that lets the model take on rough terrain with ease: if one wheel rises, the other is pushed downward to help the model gain traction

Power from the motor is routed via the realistic looking gearbox and transfer case, from its propeller shafts to the differential gears, and finally to the wheels.

A rigid setup employs 4 plastic link arms on each axle housing and four oil dampers. This ergonomic design offers superior durability and the ground clearance for peace of mind on undulating off-road terrain.

  1. Fingers crossed for matching hard-body mounts and adjustable wheelbase so we can mount the older hard plastic bodies! Already pre-ordered!!
