In March 1988, Tamiya released an electric R/C 4WD racing buggy called the Avante and it has since become a special model in Tamiya's R/C history. The machine featured a unique shaft-driven 4WD system which was taken from Tamiya's first 4WD R/C buggy, the Hotshot. It also featured a highly sophisticated design including a FRP double-deck chassis layout, longitudinal motor & battery positions, and a formula-type body with chassis fairing. It was equipped with innovative components such as a compact gearbox with 3 small planetary gears, a centre diff to increase stability, a fully adjustable suspension, and cam-lock wheel caps.

The Avante was a distinctive R/C model which featured an innovative design. After 20 years, some of the Avante's mechanisms have become standard features on modern R/C cars.

The ultimate pure racing buggy returns in 2017.
Main frame material has been changed from FRP to carbon fibre
Original FRP upper/lower decks have been replaced with 2mm thick carbon fibre decks to further increase chassis strength and rigidity
Chassis layout is optimised for installing modern R/C equipment
Rear damper stay is thicker than the original and its material has also been changed to carbon fibre
Left and right stays are connected to further increase rigidity
Wide operating universal shafts are used both front and rear to reduce friction loss
The gold-coloured oil damper cylinders feature bottom caps for easier maintenance such as replacing o-rings
Body shell, wing, and chassis fairing have been made with polycarbonate for superb off-road durability
Wheel axles have been changed to standard pin-secured type. In conjunction with aluminium wheel hubs, secure wheel attachment is possible
The hex wheel hubs enable attachment of off-road wheels such as 53880 Large Dish Wheels (4WD/Front, 62/25) and 53881 Large Dish Wheels (Rear, 62/35) in addition to the original cam-lock type wheels
The original die-cast front knuckles have been replaced with duralumin knuckles to further increase strength and durability
The Avante (2011) is compatible with a wide range of battery products such as Ni-Cd, high-capacity Ni-MH, and lightweight LF battery packs
The Avante is compatible with all Tamiya R/C systems including the 2.4GHz systems
The package for this re-release model comes with the same design and dimensions as the original Avante. In addition, just like the original, all the parts are stored in blister packs
