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.

NOTE: Complete vehicle shown in photos for illustrative purposes only. This model is a kit requiring assembly and additional items. See Needed To Complete list above for full list of items required to complete the model.

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 Hobbywing THW-1060 Brushed ESC

Tamiya Subaru Impreza Monte-Carlo '99 1/10 4WD Electric Rally Car Kit (TT-02)
First I have got to say this car is a great value. TT02 chassis has a ton of range from entry level semi-basher to full on race mode depending on upgrades. I opted to go with all metal bearings as my first upgrade and installed them during the build. I also purchased a Tamiya to Deans battery adapter so I wouldn't have to purchase any new batteries. I may end up just cutting the ends and soldering the wires together to eliminate some excess wire, but for now just going to let it be.

The build was, as is every Tamiya kit I've done, very smooth and easy. Just pay attention to the directions, they are very thorough, detailed, and show you everything you need to know. Also look at the instructions for the body before jumping to assembly or you might miss some alternate optional changes like the ride height which for this model is set to high ground clearance instead of standard (width is standard, and wheelbase is 257mm).

Doing the body is a labor of love. Painting was the easy part when it comes to the body, and man it looks so nice in that metallic blue. The stickers though... this is where you test some patience and have to spend extra time to get everything nice and lined up without too many imperfections. Just take your time, take breaks, don't rush and do it all at once. This was like my reward after work, I did the front one day, the back another day, and the sides on the last day. I only wish I could attach a photo of the final product. One of my best looking RCs.

As another reviewer said the HobbyWing ESC is a very nice addition to this kit and I can run my 2S and my 3S lipos here. The 3S is a bit larger and it would be nice if it came with two battery hold downs so I could fit larger batteries. I've been running almost exclusively 2S for a more scale speed experience. I think I might cry if I get too reckless and crash it after all that hard work on the body.

Fairly easy chassis build with typical top-notch Tamiya parts quality. Body and wheels are excellent as always though putting on the decals and finishing the body takes way longer than actually building the car. The Hobbywing ESC is a fantastic inclusion.

Tamiya Subaru Impreza Monte-Carlo '99 1/10 4WD Electric Rally Car Kit (TT-02)
Honest review here; It's a basic Tamiya kit, don't expect much in stock form. It looks awesome, but leaves a lot of room for improvements if you actually plan to drive it much, especially off-road. I know it's a on-road chassis, but it has potential if you want to start adding upgrades. Build it right with bearings, CVAs, real shocks and oil diffs and you've got a decent runner. Also, I don't know why the huge step backwards in the steering design from the TT-01 chassis, you'll want to throw those shoulder screws out and put some real hardware in or it won't last very long.

Overall, killer looking car and I have driven it on scale trails a bit with a huge smile on my face! Tekin 13.5T setup has plenty of power for drifts and scale jumps.

Its a TT-02 Chassis that youre paying for. I have a 3660 3300kv sensorless motor in mine but i blew up my esc. (not from the kit) :( Had it running pretty solidly with a top speed about 45mph with the stock plastic? bushing bearing things. Put an O ring or two in with the steering system and all slop is gone. Thanks again Amain. About 2-3 week shipping to western Canada.

This is a great kit if it's your first one. It was a blast to assemble the whole model and paint the body and apply decals! My only advice is to pay attention to the size of the plastic bearings. The big plastic ones go on the center shaft!

Kit was fun to build, obviously it’s a Tamiya product and it’s of good quality! I purchased it Friday morning and it came on Sunday morning, so thanks Amain for the kick shipping!
