I doubt they'll let Tamiya US have much input, usually not how they roll. Cool to see Tony pick up those cars, he's an ex Axial employee so he's been around them plenty. I believe he is over at Tamiya continuing to do some marketing on the US side.

True, but being that he's got experience in the crawler scene, he may have some input that others dont over there at tamiya USA.
Tamiya is weird, so you never know what they're going to do.

Who knows, maybe we'll see a lunchbox body with TLT axles

I want that Isuzu Vehicross. I know they did it in 32nd scale & maybe 24th scale, I heard rumors they did it in 10th scale for the CC01 Chassis as well.

A new pic is up at Tamiyablog, it has a solid front axle.

Wow. Didn't see that coming....Kinda disappointed already. The IFS is what makes the CC01 chassis interesting imo. Curious to see more in any case.

I cant say I'll miss the IFS and the brick that it brought with it, though they likely could have the IFS without the brick too.

That diff doesn’t look very scale, and shaped like they want it to get hung up on every rock and branch in existence

I guess they saw the MST CFX and the success that had. It's practically the spiritual successor to the CC01 in what it aims to achieve.

The real question is why Tamiya has made their next 1:16 tank the M551 and not something people want to buy.

OSRC's link confirms it's a solid axle, 4-link design. I think we have Tamiya's first out of the box scale crawler! Yes? No?

This is striking and a little overkill.

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.


I'm not a fan of the CC-01 nor do I need the IFS, but I think there isn't much to separate this vehicle from the pack so I'm not sure it's going to get much love. A CC-02 with IFS would have stood out more. As was said somewhere above, the MST CFX/CMX are great little trucks and the most likely to be direct competition with this vehicle.

Love the axle description translation:

Quote:
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
It looks like they're still using those same tires that are harder than the rocks you'd crawl on.

Great! looks like every other crawler style solid axle chassis in the market...wish they had kept the IFS front. Pretty sure the CMX will perform better and will be cheaper - but man that body!!

I kinda like it. My first thought was...how can I get a Wrangler body on that.
