The battery pack looks like a normal brick pack. No idea what is going on with that drivetrain but it's new and I like it.

I still don't get how a lipo fits!? How do they get the rear centre shaft high enough? Where on those picture would you fit lipo connectors??

Don't get me wrong though, if there's no sign of a new TRF by the time this is available I'm sure I'll get one for a play, IF lipos fit!?

When is it due again?

Looking at the pics I would say that quite simply rear centre shaft is high enough to allow the lipo to sit under it.

And I would assume that the lipo connectors on either end of the stick pack would be visible, it would be insane for Tamiya to make a car that does not find a standard Lipo...

I have to have one, it looks so mad!! Probably thin lipo's will go in, but that body looks mad, never mind cab forward, it's cab everywhere!!!

When is it due, no chance by Christmas I assume?

I will look at replacing my DB01-R if there is a DB02-R verson. I like the fact the car is a bit differant from the norm, well done Tamiya for this concept, but can we have a better looking bodyshell please or employ a new body design guy !!!!

They actually did employ new design guys for this. The body was designed by the actual TOM'S racing team.

Dudes that make cars like this.

Good find qatmix!

DB02 looks typically bonkers/inspired, love Willy's Bus, and the Celica LB Turbo deserves to be put on a track, that's a proper race car.

Absolutely love it, but i do wonder why they didnt mesh all 4 gears together in the centre gearbox for better durability. I know the front and rear centre shafts would spin in opposite direction, but that's easily reversed by turning the diff around, plus it would cancel out the torque effect from left to right.

But i do love the idea of that centre gearbox tho, also looks like its sealed for putting different weight oil in there, great for tunability.
