|Rev It Up With Aero
2012 marks the 30th anniversary of Tamiya's Mini 4WD products and the new REV Series has been launched to commemorate this milestone. The first machine in this series is the Aero Avante and as the name implies, the body features an aerodynamic-themed redesign of the iconic Avante. The chassis itself has also been engineered with aerodynamics in mind, with the monocoque main frame featuring a ground-effect design with channels to ensure smooth air flow.
The Mini 4WD Avante Jr. has its roots in the high-performance R/C 4WD racing buggy Avante. The body design features a wedge-shaped nose section, sleek body lines, and a large rear wing, and these features had been carried over to other variants such as the Super Avante, Avante Mk.II, and Avante X. The latest design to incorporate this Avante pedigree is the Aero Avante.
