Latest News: Lee Martin to Race TRF801X (893 Reads)
Posted by admin on Tuesday, October 05, 2010 - 05:15 PM


Tamiya America, inc. is proud to announce its newest member of the 1/8th off-road team.  World class off-road ace Lee Martin, has joined in a partnership with Tamiya America, Inc. to pilot the TRF801X at the upcoming IFMAR 1/8 Off-Road world championship being held at Pattaya, Thailand on November 7-14, 2010 as well as other major events around the globe. Lee, a well known driver from Great Britain, has already achieved great success piloting Tamiya’s newly released 1/10 TRF201 2WD buggy and the TRF511 4WD buggy. Sweeping the recent 2010 Euros by firmly establishing the TQ position in qualifying and winning both the 2WD and 4WD classes, expect to see a lot of Lee stateside as he pilots Tamiya’s state of the art R/C platforms in the coming months and into next year.

 A quote from Lee Martin:

 "After much success with my Tamiya 1/10th vehicles, I cannot wait to begin racing for Tamiya America, Inc. in 1/8th scale as well.  The TRF801X shows great promise and I’m really looking forward to getting behind the wheel and hopefully achieve some great results at the coming World Championship and future races!  I would like to thank David Jun and Tamiya America, Inc. for this opportunity and also thank Horizon UK and David Spashett for the help throughout the year until my move to the Tamiya Team.”

Race Reports: Team Tamiya at NitroCross World Championships '09 (892 Reads)
Posted by admin on Sunday, October 18, 2009 - 01:44 PM


Saturday October 17, 2009

Well qualifying is over. The invite field has been narrowed down from 26 to 16. Those 16 drivers get the chance on Sunday to vie for that 5k top prize! I was able to get my Tamiya vehicles into that top 16! In Truggy my truck handled awesome, I've been fighting engine issues recently but for the most part my truck worked well and I made it to the A on the first try. I will be 7th on the grid to start the A-main! In prime position to take over that top spot! :-D

Truggys: Tamiya's new 1/8 R/C Truggy (1099 Reads)
Posted by admin on Thursday, February 01, 2007 - 12:44 PM


Introducing Tamiya's new 1/8 R/C Truggy, the Nitrage. This high-performance Ready-To-Run model is packed with innovative features that no other machine in its class has. Modular construction means effortless assembly and convenient maintenance, with all the internal components mounted on a high-strength, press-molded aluminum deck. Servos are directly connected to the fully-enclosed gearboxes to ensure consistently smooth operation and minimal interference. 4-wheel independent suspension with large oil dampers, aluminum slipper clutch, and high-density spike tires mounted on large dish wheels lets it tackle any terrain with ease. The aggressive body and distinctive rear wing matches the "Nitro Rage" image perfectly and will make it the instant center of attention wherever it goes.
