This 2WD R/C off-road assembly kit buggy inherits its name from the 1980s Tamiya R/C rear-wheel drive model "Astute." The low-profile, sleek polycarbonate body is designed by Kota Nezu of znug design; it comes pre-cut and pre-painted in red, as are the mini fenders. The model features a driver figure (unpainted) for the cockpit. Two types (high/low) of wing stays are included to adjust downforce. Based on a monocoque frame chassis with midship motor and battery pack position toward the rear, the Astute 2022 utilizes front ribbed and rear square spike tires.
TD2 - Superbly Balanced RWD
The TD2 is a rear-wheel drive buggy chassis which employs front inboard suspension for slim, low-profile form, and a monocoque frame with optimum R/C equipment layout. It features a midship transverse motor and transverse battery pack positioned to the rear. The sealed gearbox has a built-in ball differential to limit slip and 4-wheel independent double wishbone suspension utilizes CVA oil dampers. Turnbuckle shafts for use as upper arms facilitate camber angle adjustment. Front suspension has a skid angle of 25 degrees and angled dampers for smooth performance. Ribbed front and rear square spike tires facilitate stability and great grip. Front wheels are attached by hex hubs.
