The fuel tank of Stark holds 75 l of diesel and it located ahead of the rear axle. Weight is 1,580 kg and distribution is close to the perfect 50%/50% fraction (still not disclosed because the vehicle is still under development). Chassi is a steel space frame, which is apparent in some parts of the body, made of plastic reinforced by fibreglass.
The gearbox is a five-speed manual transmission Eaton FSO-2405D, also used by some Iveco trucks. Stark will be a four wheel drive utility vehicle, equipped with a BorgWarner reduction gearbox and 44.3 Dana differentials, with rear locking. Suspension is independent in all four wheels, with a system of double A arms, with two shock absorbers for each wheel. Course is 18 cm. Ground clearance is 25 cm and attack and escape angles are respectively 45º and 48º. Brakes also use discs on all wheels.
Plans to export TAC Stark will only take place when Brazilian demand proves to be enough for production to keep its levels. When Stark is a more mature product, with all its qualities tested and assured, it will meet its buyers abroad. Prepare your wallets, my friends!
