Default Has the rear bodymount been moved?

I like it and thanks for sharring, Kentech

The images of the Toyota is a bit blurred, but the rear bodymount seems to have been moved in front of the rearwheels. Or am I way of here?

On the original, the rear bodymount and the rear wingmount shared the same mounting on the rear pod - a lot of mounting in one sentence

Are you guys sure it'll take a 540? It looks ok but might it not have the clearance underneath?

THe wing mount is one the back of the gearbox like the F1 chassis cars.
The old method isnt bad but it limits the gearbox movement. And the wings allways fall off. The sad part it is doesnt make a difference if it has the wing or not for handling.

Electric R/C Car Series
Toyota Tom's 84C
Item No:58509 

In 1985, Tamiya released a 1/12 scale R/C model of the Toyota Tom's 84C Group C race car and it enjoyed a great reputation. In recent years, the 1/12 scale class has become a very popular R/C race class once again. To re-enter this exciting class, Tamiya's Toyota Tom's 84C will be making a return on the brand-new RM-01 chassis. This new chassis features a Direct Drive 2WD setup and a Pivot-Ball Link Rear (PBLR) suspension to offer linear throttle and steering response and realistic racing action.

【 All-New RM-01 Chassis 】 

This chassis features a 2.5mm thick black-colored FRP lower deck and a height-adjustable resin gear case with type 380 motor. Pivot-Ball Link Rear (PBLR) suspension system features a center pivot ball, a pitch damper to temper chassis pitch movement, and a roll damper and side links to control chassis roll. Aluminum diff housing allows ball differential adjustment without detaching rear wheel. Attachment of both hex-hub-secured and 3-screw-secured wheels are possible. Front independent suspension features optimized kingpin trail. The standard type 380 motor is installed by using an adapter, which may be removed to allow installation of type 540 motors.

Front section is designed to provide superb durability. Independent front suspension has optimized kingpin trail, offering smooth steering operation and straight-line stability.

Rear section features a Pivot-Ball Link Rear (PBLR) suspension system. Roll springs can be additionally installed for more advanced suspension settings.

Direct Drive setup features an aluminum diff housing, steel rear shaft, and height adjustable gear case. New wheel hubs allow attachment of both hex-hub-secured and 3-screw-secured wheels.

The straightforward design and optimized layout result in superb weight distribution which contributes to linear throttle response and steering characteristics.

【 Separately Required Items 】 
●2-channel R/C unit with ESC. 
●R6/AA/UM3 batteries for transmitter 
●Item 55105 Tamiya LF Battery LF1100-6.6V Racing Pack (M-Size) & compatible charger.

That post is kind of contradictory, I should have said first 12th in a long time!

Had one of these when I was a kid so really looking fwd to getting one again. I'm guessing they will re release the 956 or the body set, which would be great

It looks like the top and side shock might be like the Agitators by Lucas G.

Also note the swept back front arms

Looks like a damper tube to me. The top shock is the same plastic one the F1 cars use.
