[TA58523]Bush Devil II
The original Bush Devil (#58101) was released way back in 1992 on a Space Frame Chassis. This version, the Bush Devil II, puts the same body shell on a completely different WT-01 chassis. The WT-01 Chassis is basically the single gearbox, 2WD version of the tried and trusted 4WD double gearbox WR-01 Chassis. The kit comes with the single gearbox pre-assembled and for this reason is marketed as being an ideal kit for beginners and first time assemblers. The design employs an orbital gear differential and four coil spring over friction shock absorbers. For improved handling these should be upgraded to oil filled. Lug-pattern semi pneumatic front and rear rubber tires, a 540 silver can electric motor and a TEU-104BK ESC are included in the kit. Radio equipment, battery, charger and paint for the body shell are required to complete. Like many Tamiya models, the kit comes with nylon/plastic and sintered brass bush type bearings that after a short while, when dust and grit get into them, will abrade the metal drive shafts that spin in them - if you are building this kit to race seriously these should be replaced by steel ball bearings.
