Lotus Type 40

After issuing the Type 30 in 1966, Tamiya came back in 1967 and upgraded the model to the new Type 40 with the die-cast aluminum chassis now in sidewinder design. While a Mabuchi FT16 or FT36 motor could be used, most preferred the new FT26. The first kits did not, as usual for Japanese slot car kits, include a motor but the last productions did, as shown in one of the pictures. After the commercial exchange deal with the German Stabo company, Tamiya included an FT26 motor now under the chassis blister. Those late versions are scarce.
