The Tyrrell P34 is known as the distinctive “six-wheeler” Formula One race car and its 1977 Argentine GP version featured a full cowl body design without observation windows seen on the side of the cockpit.
The 1977 Argentine Grand Prix featured the six-wheeled Tyrrell P34 driven by Patrick Depailler. The unique design included a new six-wheel concept that was first developed in 1975, refined in 1977, and discontinued before the 1978 season. The design consisted of two sets of smaller front wheels specifically designed for the F1 car, and two ordinary rear F1 tires. The double steering mechanism as well as other details that made the P34 unique were immaculately scaled down to 1/10 scale and made into this incredibly detailed kit.
When the P34 was under its design stage in the mid-1970s, Tyrrell designers faced an aerdymamics problem. F1 rules stated that the front wing could be no wider than 1.5 meters. The front end of the F1 car needed to fit not only the drivers feet but the steering mechanism and suspension as well. If using conventional tires, the tires would petrude out and above the wing, disrupting the aerdynamics of the car. Tyrell's solution to this problem was to incorporate smaller tires in the design, which were narrowed down to just 10" in diameter, not leaving much contact area. To combat the issue, they decided to use four tires for steering, doubling the contact area to the ground. This features has been masterfully scaled down with a similar bellcrank set up to that of the full size version of the P34.
The details on the full size model are immaculately recreated on the RC model version of the Tyrrell P34. The body is molded in white plastic to realistically depict the Tyrrell P34 1977 Argentine Grand Prix version of the P34.
The full size Tyrrell P34 F1 car was designed with aerodynamics in mind. So Tyrrell employed a four-wheel steering system to not only increase contact surface area and aerodynamics. This feature has been expertely reacted on the 1/10 RC model with a similar bellcrank set-up.
The orginal P34 F1 car was designed to have smaller wheels in the front to increase aerodynamics. The very same wheels have been recreated in a high-grip, sponge type foam, allowing you to have the advantage over other ordinary F1 cars on the track.
The P34 kit includes one scale driver to add to the cockpit of your model, allowing you to imagine any on of the P34's drivers driving your scale model on the track.
Just a like a real F1 car, this model kit emloyed a 2WD system. To mimic the amount of power and torque the real thing has, the RC model incorporates a direct drive system where the power of the 540-type motor is directly input into the rear wheels of the car.
