The Tamiya Subaru Impreza TT-02 Monte-Carlo '99 4WD Rally Car Kit is a scale replica of the 1999 two-door Subaru Impreza rally car. This car was a highly balanced beast, with 4-cylinder turbocharged all-aluminum boxer engine, a drive-by-wire throttle and semi-automatic 6-speed transmission. This R/C model assembly kit recreates the Impreza from the year's opening rally in Monte-Carlo, with the form faithfully depicted in durable polycarbonate, and separate parts used to recreate rear wing and side mirrors. Stickers are included to recreate the multitude of team and sponsor logos. The model runs on the adaptable TT-02 chassis, which is equally at home on road and flat dirt surfaces.

TT-02 Chassis
The shaft-driven 4WD TT-02 chassis employs a longitudinal layout with the battery on the left and the motor on the right, to give excellent stability. In addition, it features identical left and right suspension arms and uprights for ease of assembly, plus easy-to-maintain gearboxes. It is a highly adaptable chassis, as it offers 2 different wheelbases, 2 ground clearance settings and 2 tread set-ups in addition to a range of 10 possible gear ratios. It is not short on looks either, with brake disc-shaped wheel hubs and stylish front bumper supports. Gold color fin-spoke wheels are paired with rally block tires.

Features:

  • Torque-tuned motor is included!
  • The classic form of the car is recreated in polycarbonate, with separately-molded side mirror and rear wing parts.
  • The TT-02 chassis features a shaft-driven 4WD system that offers easy handling and great customization.
  • Stickers are included to recreate the markings on the car, as are window masking stickers for use when painting.
  • 16-spoke gold color molded wheels are paired with rally block tires (Item 50476).
  • A wide range of option parts is available to tune the TT-02 chassis.
  • Includes a Tamiya TBLE-02S ESC and Torque Tuned motor. ESC features brushless motor mode for easy expandability.

The kit is good for the price, however the esc has failed on me and Amain told me to contact tamiya about the issue. I've been an avid rc enthusiast since I was a child and tamiya is my absolute favorite, this is the first time I've had problems with tamiya electronics. I've since ordered another tamiya kit car, this time direct from tamiyaUSA.

Very nice Tamiya kit. Like many I am getting back into the hobby. I haven't built an RC kit from scratch since the late 80's. Not listed in the description but the kit came with an ESC as a bonus. I just realized you can see it one of the listing pictures. I ordered the TT02 high speed gear set, aluminum shaft, oil shocks, and bearings. Looking through the instruction manual the build is straightforward and looks great for a beginner or someone like me getting back into the hobby. I ordered the upgrades based on online recommendations and youtube video reviews. My last kit was an RTR and going back and upgrading with Hop Ups was kinda a pain for me, so I decided to order them in advance. (there are many more upgrade options) I highly recommend this kit even for experienced RC enthusiasts as I'm sure you can get the most out it. Also note the kit does not come with tire foam inserts. Instruction implies you don't need them but I recommend getting some. I decided to review before building the kit since there are tons of online and video reviews of the Tamiya TT02.

Upgrades I ordered:
TT02 High speed gear set
TT02 Aluminum propellers shaft and aluminum shaft cups
TT02 Oil Shocks
FastEddy Bearings
Tire foam inserts (will order soon)

Ordering from Amain is always top notch. The oil shocks were back ordered and they kept me updated through the entire process. Don't hesitate to order from Amain if your new to the hobby.

Great beginner or budget build. Bought along with a ball bearing kit which is a must for this car. Not all that fast out of the box but upgrades seem to be plenty and still fun to drive just upgrade as you go.

I love this little car! I had a servo, radio, and better ESC already handy so it was just a matter of putting it together and running it! Mine came with 2 gears, a 17tooth and a 19 tooth, the motor says to run the 17, I put in the 19 and dropped a 3S lipo in it, ran it up and down the street, it topped out at 25mph. I need to find a track to run it on, so far I’m pretty happy with it, I just wished it came with inner fenders , it tends to kick a lot of gravel into the tub driving it on the streets. I’ll definitely buy a kit like this again!
