After 20 years since it first excited R/C drivers all around the world with its dynamic form, the Avante is back! 
 
Tamiya has given the Avante (2011) the special re-release treatment just like other re-released buggies such as the Buggy Champ and Hotshot.


In March 1988, Tamiya released an electric R/C 4WD racing buggy called the Avante and it has since become an legendary machine in Tamiyas R/C history.

The Avante featured a unique shaft-driven 4WD system which was taken from Tamiyas first 4WD R/C buggy, the Hotshot. It also featured a highly sophisticated design including a FRP double-deck chassis layout, longitudinal motor & battery positions, and a formula-type body with chassis fairing. It was equipped with innovative components such as a compact gearbox with 3 small planetary gears, a center diff to increase stability, a fully adjustable suspension, and cam-lock wheel caps.

The Avante was a distinctive R/C machine which featured an innovative design. After 20 years, some of the Avantes mechanisms have become standard features on modern R/C cars.

Here is a brief introduction of the improved points:

Main chassis material has been changed from FRP to Carbon Fiber.
Original FRP upper/lower decks have been replaced with 2.0mm thick Carbon Fiber decks to further increase chassis strength and rigidity. Chassis layout is optimized for installing modern R/C equipment.

Carbon Fiber Rear Damper Stay
Rear damper stay is thicker than the original and its material has also been changed to carbon fiber. Left and right stays are connected to further increase rigidity.

Universal Drive Shafts
Universal shafts are used for both front and rear to reduce friction loss.

Easier Damper Maintenance
The gold-colored oil damper cylinders feature bottom caps for easier maintenance such as replacing o-rings.

Durable Polycarbonate Body Shell
The body, wing, and chassis fairing have been made with polycarbonate for superb off-road durability. 
 
Wheel Axle/Clamp Type Wheel Hubs

Wheel axles have been changed to standard pin-secured type. In conjunction with the original cam-lock type wheels.

Duralumin front knuckles
The original die-cast front knuckles have been replaced with duralumin knuckles to further increase strength and durability.

Compatible with a wide range of battery packs.
The Avante (2011) is compatible with a wide range of battery types.

The Original Packaging is also Revived!
The package for this re-release model comes with the same design and dimensions as the original Avante. In addition, just like the original Avante, all the parts are stored in blister packs. The Avante logo and rear wing sticker will remain the same as the original. Other stickers will be of a new Tamiya design.
