Default CC02 is coming...



Finally Tamiya has made the CC02

Not much info yet, but from picture we can se live axle and by text it will have 4 links front and back among other things.



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

AXLE HOUSINGS
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

GEARBOX
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.

4-LINK SUSPENSION
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.

Are those Hummer tires? I thought I was good at recycling....

I like it, though. Lots of potential there.

To me it looks like they designed the axles upside down.

Are the front shocks inboard of the rails?

I kinda like the concept but unsure if it'll be a capable rig without significant mods

Edit, not in board, just the image ....

I see that one shot too and I am assuming it's showing that the shocks can be mounted inside ant outside the frame rails. The axles are definitely showing their TLT heritage. I am willing to be a wooden nickle that the leaf springs will mount right up to these axles as well. I do like the new link arms under the axles. They are similar to LC80 arms and I am really hoping that Tamiya brings their 1/24 Land Cruiser to 1/10 with this chassis.

I dig it, but then again, I have always had a soft spot for Tamiya.

The shock confusion is a bad photo edit.
I want one of these.

Yay! Another ladder frame, chunky non scale axled, center mount transmission, coilover and 4 link f/r scaler. I’m so glad there weren’t 13 different manufacturers beating them to market with that layout. I hope it’s 8” wide like all the rest too.

I like it! Kinda resembles an MST.

The G5 doesn't do it for me though, and it seems the only other Tamiya bodies that fit the stock wheelbase are, the FJ Cruiser and the Hilux, which I'm not a fan of either.

I might have to change all the links for TLT ones with ball ends in them, and free up the suspension even more, then I could fit, pretty much, any of their bodies on there.

Definitely looking forward to getting one of these little buggers.

Finally a narrower axle with differentials. Mounting holes look too apart to mount leaf springs directly though. I hope they're ABS.

Both ends of the frame rails look detachable, I hope they're made like that for different length versions.

That is what I am seeing as well. I'm already planning on making extensions to it so I can mount leaf springs and build a proper LWB clod body 4WD.

I was thinking the same thing. But it looks like the frame rails don't have much function and everything is connected to a center platform instead.
