The Limited-Edition kit is an exact re-release of the original as it appeared in the mid-1990’s.
The proven TA02 bath-tub chassis provides shaft-driven 4WD. 4-wheel double wishbone suspension is fitted with CVA oil dampers. Enclosed front and rear gear cases have built-in diff gears, with a ball differential in the rear.
