Tamiya 58665 Toyota TS050 Hybrid
This is a 1/10 scale radio control replica of the Toyota GAZO Racing TS050 Hybrid. It is a World Endurance Championship race car that competed throughout the WEC 2018-2019 season. This specific kit celebrates Toyota’s first ever win at the famed 24 Hours of Le Mans. It was a historic moment for Toyota as 2018 marked the automotive brands’ 20th attempt in securing a first-place finish after 388 intense laps on the famed Circuit de La Sarthe in France. It is only the second automotive company from Japan to ever win the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
The Tamiya replica sits atop the 2WD F103GT Chassis, which is easy to build and offers thrilling acceleration, thanks to its simple 2WD Direct Drive system with grippy rubber tires that supply plenty of traction.
The F103GT chassis utilizes 2WD direct drive, with a rear-mounted motor. Its FRP double-deck frame employs 1.5mm upper and 2.5mm lower decks, cushioned by link-type arm and coil spring left/right independent front suspension. An FRP T-bar is the centerpiece of the rigid rear suspension setup, working in tandem with the friction plate and coil spring unit to provide a smooth drive. The height adjustable gear case allows a range of ground clearance settings, and contains a high-performance ball differential. Front uprights give a 3° caster angle, and are equipped with 850 ball bearings. Get ready for a fun, responsive drive!
