【 The Best Keeps Getting Better 】 This thoroughbred racing chassis is the successor to the World Champion TRF417 and features a host of newly-designed parts in a drive to add the 2014 IFMAR World Championship crown to TRF's impressive collection of titles. It features an alluring balance of flexibility and rigidity. A whole host of major parts have been redesigned, including carbon upper and lower decks, duralumin front/rear bulkheads and motor mount, suspension arms, uprights and more. With further enhancements such as adjustable stabilizers, large diameter damper springs, a lightweight front direct coupling and joint cups, the TRF418 takes full advantage of Tamiya's racing pedigree and data, and is ready to take on the world!

【 Striking a Sublime Balance 】 The TRF418 strikes a fine balance between flexibility and rigidity and achieves optimal roll characteristics. It does so by detaching the center bulkhead part from the upper-deck, allowing the chassis to fully take advantage of the characteristics of its carbon parts. To optimize performance in today's high-speed racing climate, duralumin A7075 alloy was employed for the front/rear bulkheads and motor mount, while the drivetrain is supported by highly rigid parts. Meanwhile, suspension arms, front/rear uprights and other parts ensure that weight transfer results in less tire wear.

■A 2 gram weight reduction has been achieved in the front direct coupling. Features double cardan universal shaft.

■Duralumin front/rear bulkheads and motor mount provide excellent rigidity. Front and rear upper bulkheads have different designs to optimize suspension arm effects.

■Optimal roll characteristics are provided by separating the center bulkhead and upper deck. They can be attached if track conditions require it.

■Front/rear suspension arm and uprights were designed to reduce tire wear. Adjustable stabilizers allow fine-tuning of the chassis set-up.
