This is the first special edition of the Tamiya Shooting Proud Star (Item 18641). It is a car which graced the Japanese Mini 4WD comic “Hyper Dash! Yonkuro” in CoroCoro Aniki and was inspired by the Dash-3 Shooting Star. The model is based upon the midship motor, aerodynamically honed MA chassis.
The Ultra-Efficient MA Chassis
The MA (Midship AERO) Chassis has its motor in the center, and features a design which focuses upon achieving outstanding aerodynamic performance. It has a gear ratio of 3.5:1, 6 individual low-friction rollers, a rear skid bar and other speedy features developed thanks to years of design experience. The single-piece monocoque frame also guarantees that assembling and keeping the car well-maintained is a task that can be performed by beginners and veteran racers alike.
