The new M02 is exactly the opposite. Rear mounted motor, Rear Wheel Drive. The design is not without its problems however. The curious steering set-up isn't the best and the horizontally mounted friction mono shocks are next to useless for fine tuning. Like the majority of the radio controlled models produced by Tamiya around 80s and 90s the car disappointingly came with the plastic/nylon and sintered brass bush type bearings.If installed, the grease on these bearings collect dust and grit that actually abrades the shafts spinning in them, so if you do fit ball bearings at a later time they are sloppy on the shafts not good To avoid this problem, a full set of steel ball bearings should be installed on first build. Much like its M01 brother, driving the M02 is great fun. Another successful first for Tamiya.
