Back, and Ready to Take On Modern Day Competition

Tamiya is pleased to welcome back the Egress, successor to the famed Avante. The Avante was originally launched in 1988 and Tamiya took advantage of the experience and know-how garnered by the Tamiya Racing Factory (TRF; founded in 1989) team to make a racing version of the Avante: the Egress. It featured carbon fiber plates made of the material seen on hi-tech racing cars and aircraft, and employed racing parts such as ball diffs, high-capacity oil dampers, and lightweight titanium screws. Now, the shaft-driven Egress receives a makeover to bring it right up to date and unleash a whole new world of potential.

Durable shaft-driven 4WD chassis uses a range of carbon parts

This shaft-driven 4WD chassis features a longitudinally-positioned motor and full ball bearings, while carbon fiber upper and lower decks ensure that the model has superb strength. Re-designed front and rear ball differentials offer excellent reliability and easy maintenance, working in tandem with the built-in center one-way to provide sure-footed movement. The one-way bearing can be locked. Universal drive shafts feature the same design as those used in the current TRF series parts, in order to maximize power transmission and improve resistance to wear and tear. 4-wheel double wishbone suspension is supported by 4 oil dampers equipped with aluminum cylinders, while the front and rear of the model are fitted with stabilizers. Aluminum front uprights offer excellent reliability, and ball bearings in steering linkage arms combine with 2mm thick carbon fiber plate to offer a linear steering response. The Egress has been truly revamped across the board, and it also features a brushless motor.

This is a re-release of the iconic Egress 4WD off-road racing buggy. The Egress first appeared in 1989. It was a follow up kit to the Avante, which had a huge fan following. The original Egress featured stacks of special racing parts. The Egress (2013) builds upon the racy original of the same name, adding modern parts to bring it fully up to speed with available battery and motor technologies available in the hobby market today.
