- Tamiya TRF511X - BRCA National Rd1 - Talywain - 18.04.2010 -

Lee Martin recently joined Tamiya as their only off-road driver in the UK for many a year. Lee took the win at the 2WD event the day previous running the not-yet-released TRF201X 2WD buggy. In 4wd, Lee's weapon is the TRF511 which dominated the European Championships in 2009 in the hands of Marc Rheinard.

Lee's car is fairly similar to the winning car and whilst it's not far from standard spec there are a few hop-ups to note. Lee's car has the gold coloured damper bodies (which have a different coating, apparently). A carbon fibre lipo tray and a rather nifty rear gearbox cover which looks to do a good job at preventing dust and debris from entering this normally fairly open area - both are by Fredrik Emilsson from Sweden.
