Tamiya TLT-1


The Penguinr/c P2300r Performance Chassis is currently the most advanced lightweight chassis availible for the TLT-1. This chassis improves the stock TLT-1 reducing weight, increasing the ground clearance, lowering CG, increases articulation, improves electronics placement, and reduces drivetrain bind. The P2300r is a revision to the original P2300. This revision allows the use of a Gear Transmission in the TLT-1 to improve climing capabilities.

This kit includes all the plates and hardware that you need for conversion, except the Gear drive parts which are availible from Traxxas and Tamiya required parts list at the botom of this page. This chassis provides an excellent base for those of you that are looking to expand on the capabilities of the TLT-1, do to it's sturdy lightweght design and centered drivetrain layout. Protecting the gearbox is a removable replaceable G10 skid plate to keep your chassis in pristine condition. A pattern is included so that you can make a plastic gearbox cover to enclose all the gears for further protection.

Electronic placement in this chassis is eased by providing an additional Radio tray to mount your electronics while allowing you to mount your normal Sub-C batteries at both the front and the rear of the chassis to aid in balance. (the stock TLT-1 requires a custom battery pack) These special trays are mounted 10mm lower in the chassis than the stock TLT-1 but do not interfere with articulation due to the innovative interlocking construction of the chassis. You have the ability to mount up to 10 Sub-C cells on this chassis. (stacked)

In an effort to improve the articulation of the suspention we have designed a new Servo mount system that places the servo in front of the axle but is still protected fully by the stock bumper cage. This placement of the servo adds over an inch of additional suspension clearance while protecting your valuable electronics. An optional version of this servo mounting can also be used at the rear of the TLT-1 for four wheel steering and is availible separately. (P2308)
