Tamiya Braun Tyrrell Honda 020 Kit 1/20 Scale Model Kit by Tamiya
Over the years, the Tyrell Racing Team of England has become famous for incorporating innovative ideas in their Formula One racing machines. During the 1990 Grand Prix season, they introduced a very distinctive anhedral shaped front wing, which immediately became popular with other Formula One car builders. For the 1991 season the Tyrell Team improve and continued to use this highly effective design on their type 020 racer. This wing, when combined with the raised front nose cone, allows more air to flow under the chassis, producing a stronger downforce. The sleek and low body shell was aerodynamically sculptured to provide more performance at the track. This excellent chassis is magnificently mated to Honda's potent, normally aspirated, 3498cc, V-10 cylinder, type RA101E powerplant, and the transmission gear casing is transversely mounted in front of the rear axle. The front suspension system uses a double wishbone push-rod type damped by a single-shock unit, while the rear end uses a conventional push-rod damped by a single-shock unit, while the rear end uses a conventional push-rod with horizontally mounted dual shocks. This reliable suspension system is fitted with newly developed Pirelli slick racing tires on all four wheels. Piloted by skilled drivers Satoru Nakajima and Stefano Modena, the Tyrell 020 racer was a prominent contender throughout the 1991 Formula One Grand Prix season.
