Tamiya M-08
 
The waiting is over. Finally a high performance RWD Tamiya M chassis in the spirit of the M-07. Let's hope it's a mid motor configuration so all RWD body's will fit!

Where? I'm not seeing it anywhere. We have a part number, but that's it. (I've been waiting to start this thread until we got.. something... a picture, a price.. something like that.)

Yes, but the TRF M-08 has is basically a TRF FF04 turned backwards. I'll link a photo for all to see.

Some German shops have it on their site for the same price as the M07. It was leaked in January, and there is a part number ( 58669) so I think the production has already been started .

Pics....NOW!! :D

Nerobro 03-27-2019 01:06 AM

The part number is out there. I've seen it listed on a few sale sites. The TCS rules have mentioned it. But.... there's still no pictures. :-) Weather or not it's coming, isn't much of a question. So.. "litterally" never seen it.

Do the German shops have pictures?

Edit: I"m a little cranky about this. I suppose.

Yep it’s midship :) Info from Tamiya

https://www.thercracer.com/2019/03/5...irst-info.html

This Tamiya high-performance rear-wheel drive R/C chassis assembly kit is constructed around a rigid monocoque with the main frame split into front and rear sections.

It offers superior rear high traction drive characteristics and fuss-free maintenance of parts such as the easy-access differential. C.V.A. (Constant Volume Adjustable) oil shock-damped 4-wheel double wishbone suspension features dedicated long arms and steering linkage components for a range of setup options.

A silky-smooth drivetrain utilizes full ball bearings, oil-filled gear differential unit and universal drive shafts. It can be assembled with a 210mm (S), 225mm (M) or 239mm (L) wheelbase, making it compatible with appropriately-sized existing Tamiya M-chassis body parts sets.

• 1/10 scale R/C model assembly kit.
• The chassis is split into front (suspension and servo) and rear (motor and battery) sections. It can be assembled into three different wheelbases: S (210mm), M (225mm) or L (239mm).
• Rear-midship motor powers rear wheels via a differential in the Mid-Rear setup.
• Oil-filled differential gear used from the M-07.
• Features proven M-07 Concept designs: suspension arms, uprights, suspension mounts and aluminum parts.
• Includes CVA oil dampers, universal drive shafts, full ball bearings and hi-torque servo saver.
• Comes with new front suspension mounts (0 degrees) and hub carriers (2 degrees) for a total caster angle of 2 degrees.
• Compatible with M-06 Chassis bodies.
• Requires: 2-Channel Radio, servo, ESC, motor, 7.2-7.4volt battery pack & compatible charger, and body set.
• Compatible with M-07 Concept Hop-Up Option parts such as Aluminum Rear Suspension Mount (Skid Angle Adjustment) (54787), Aluminum Rear Uprights (54781) and Low-Friction King Pin Pipes (54813).

Interesting, I knew an M-08 wasn't far behind when the M-07 was released. I'd love to see some pictures. I don't race, but do enjoy my M chassis cars. Don't know if I need or want an M-08. Being mid motor, handling should improve over the M-06, if you don't decide to overpower it.
My M-05 spends it's time in the dirt with 1/16 Slash tires. My M-06 is a handful of brushless mayhem and on TC size tires holds a wheelie.

I hope we can have a picture of this chassis. I went for the mg evo for my ff need and xm1s for awd. This time though I bet either 3RACING nor xpress will have something to response (excluding that belt driven xpress 2wd...)

Looking forward to this one

Aaaand we have our first picture. Going by the M07, this puts the car about a month out....

Core Creations 03-27-2019 10:00 AM

Looks like a reversed M07.

Yep! Mid ship!

Raman 03-28-2019 10:26 AM

There could be a chance that it can be mid and rear motor..

Rear-midship motor powers rear wheels via a differential in the Mid-Rear setup

could be lost in translation or could be that if you want the car to be 210.. you may have to flip the motor to back?

We we shall find out :D

Nerobro 03-28-2019 10:49 AM

Making a M07 a 210mm car, is just a set of hubs away from reality. (there's some 210mm rear hubs on thingiverse) I doubt you'll need to flip the motor on the M08.
