The the TA03 was available in several configurations. The front motored 4-wheel drive both standard and short wheelbases & the mid motored 4-wheel drive again available in both the standard and short wheelbase but the shortened wheelbase mid motor vehicle was widened slightly in the rear.
It was common for people to make dual motored vehicles because of Tamiya"s easily interchanged parts. Several magazines featured the conversion and the cars were very fast.
The car is for sure a collectible piece and a nice addition to any collection.
