Tamiya is pleased to announce this latest release Radio Control model on the high performance shaft-driven TB-04 chassis. The model depicts the RAYBRIG NSX CONCEPT-GT, a car developed by Honda to race in the 2014 Japanese Super GT Series. The hi-tech race car features a 1.6-liter turbocharged direct injection engine with anti-lag, plus a mid-ship layout that optimizes distribution of the car’s weight, particularly taking into account its unique hybrid system.
The TB-04 is a 1/10 scale 4WD machine that incorporates a drive-shaft down the center of the chassis to engage the front and rear gearboxes. The differentials inside the gearboxes are newly designed as they utilize a sealed gear differential system whereby the internal gears movement is controlled by different viscosity differential fluids. The double-wishbone suspension system utilizes the same “short reversible” type that has been used on the TB-03, TA-05 Version II, TA-06 and the TRF (Tamiya Racing Factory) 416 and 417 World Championship machines. The TB-04 also incorporates “IFS” (inboard front suspension) whereby the front shocks are positioned horizontally and low to the chassis, so that low profile sports car body shapes can be accurately reproduced without losing any realistic scale appearance.

Well I finally got to test the GPM Racing MP9 shocks out at the track. First off before I tested the car I noticed that the shocks were over dampened for our tracks here, so I went down to 35wt in the front and 30wt rear, also noticed on my MP7.5 that the front shocks were binding against the front drive shafts so I modified the mount in the arms by taking material out so I could shift the shocks forward and add a spacer to clear the drive shafts.
Now on to testing. Well I have to say I am impressed with how they transformed the handling of my buggy. It jumped well and more importantly went through the bumps much smother. I shaved off at least 2 or three seconds a lap off my regular time and was able to keep the owner of the track that I was testing at within striking distance were as before he was handing me my butt. I did notice as the night wore on that the shocks were breaking in, and now I think I may need to go up a little in the weight to add some dampening back in.
So If you don’t want to spend $100 on a new set of shocks, go over to http://www.asiatees.com/ and check them out.
