New Tamiya XV-01 Rally Chassis Coming Soon

It looks like the guys over at Tamiya have a new chassis in the works. The new Tamiya XV-01 features a front mounted motor design which sends power to all four wheels through an enclosed belt drive system. XV stands for Crossover Vehicle which gives you a good idea of its intended purpose. The XV-01 will serve as a common all-terrain platform which can be used for rally cars, on-road cars and even pickup trucks. We believe the first vehicle Tamiya will release utilizing this chassis is a 2008 Subaru WRX rally car with a hopped up Pro-Spec version following soon after.


  • 1/10 Scale
  • Enclosed belt drive
  • 4WD
  • Gear differentials
  • Oil filled shocks
  • Front mounted motor
  • Sealed radio box

  • Underside battery compartment

  • Optional slipper clutch

The Tamiya XV-01 is expected to make its first public appearance at the Shizuoka Hobby Show on May 17th.
