About the 1/10 R/C Buggy the Mini 4WD car is based on
The Dual Ridge, based upon the TT-02B Chassis, was released on October 1, 2014. Its polycarbonate bodyshell was designed by Takayuki Yamazaki of pdc_designworks, who would later go on to design the DCR-01, DCR-02 and oversees the design of the Dual Ridge Jr.
The TT-02B is a modified version of the on-road-focused, shaft-driven TT-02, modified to be used in R/C buggies. Wheel tracks has been widened thanks to its longer double-wishbone arms, and is equipped with the new damper mounts and longer CVA dampers. It comes with the dust covers for the ESC and standard buggy wheels and tires by default. Due to the TT-02 series chassis being a versatile platform, many hop-up parts designed for TT-02 cars are compatible with the TT-02B.
