Tamiya 1/10 R/C Avante (2011) Black Special


Mini 4WD Special Enlarged

This re-released version of Tamiya's legendary 1988 Avante buggy features the cool colour scheme of the Mini 4WD Avante Black Special. It comes equipped with hybrid spike tires mounted on vivid fluorescent pink lightweight wheels to add to its eye-catching appearance.

Select Options Included

The shaft-driven 4WD chassis features carbon fibre upper/lower decks (2mm) and rear damper stay (3.5mm) which ensure superb strength. Front/rear ball differentials and centre torque splitter help provide sure-footed traction. Racing steering set with 2mm thick carbon fibre plate offers linear steering response. 4-wheel double wishbone suspension with metal shafts allows a high degree of setting customisation. Aluminium front knuckles feature the same shape as those on the original Avante and radius arm protector absorbs shocks to prevent damage to suspension arms. A total of 26 ball bearings contribute to a reduction in friction loss.


  • Racing Steering Set features 2mm thick carbon steering plate.
  • Comes with a 25T motor. 2 different center spur gear setups are possible (torque splitter or rigid type).
