About the price, that 32000 is for coming soon Volac?
I think this price is just provisional, not fixed 1?
At a lot of japanese order sites, has variety of prices of this coming soon kit, mostly has previewed would be lower.
Yeah i think you are right
So it seems i realy have to buy the kit!

Please keep us updated with pics and infos !

I am not very confidence about the development of the coming TB EVO5MS, just because the TB series cars don't included in the "TRF family group", i am very afraid of without releasing spool, even included in the kit or sell as option part, and many more other parts for the improvement.

I like what I saw on the evo V. Bought it when it was nearly $400 USD. Not including the titanium screws and stuff.

I will be patient and wait for more specs for the evo V ms to come out. Let's hope tamiya knows what they are doing... cause there are people willing to buy cars. Just no one will buy crap cars or cars that have "slight" upgrades for $600 USD.

Cool picture !!

The only thing i could say is that the lower deck is definetly new. (Stick Battery holder is new). I think the fornt gearbox is the same and also the bevel and crone gears.

A picture of the back gearbox of the car would be fine, because i cant see how the new spurgear "frame" is mounted.
Is it one unit with the gearbox? The upper deck seems to end at the motormount. And i cant say how the "back stick together".

The extensions on the SPur gear frame are also a questionmark. Are they realy for stiffening? On al other cars the go back to more flex in the chassis?

I hope you know what i mean. Please more pics of the back of the car !!!!!

From where are the pics?

Greetings Blueman

Wow, you still want more?
Sorry, more of this is impossible, i found it in Tamiya japanese site, this is the only 1.
If you want follow more of that, i think should be only later of HS.
As i know this car is shown with more detail in the June edition of Japan's RC sports, but unfortunately i haven't got it.
Maybe you have to ask other people, but as i know here is almost no japanese people in this forum.

Lower deck looks narrower and uses ta05ms style battery holder. Looks very 'trf'.

The new car seems to have 416 steering and suspension parts with short arms. The steering gives the front more flex and I guess the new motormount / shorter top deck on the back is for same. I'd love to see the bottom to see if the bulkheads are changed or mostly if they mount differently to the lower deck. If you already have the evo 5 I doubt it's worth to get the new car.

Did see if those are short arms, i thought this 1 is large ones, just because belt drive cars are using already.
I think Tamiya is become "democratized", they try to hearing what the hobbyist wish to having, then they upgrade a little bit the old designs to the latest decent chassis.
Maybe of these low speed races: 5cells 23T/13.5TBL, 540 silver can, 27T or the recently 30T race categories are going to born in that country, which shaft drive transmission have a little advantage in these cases.
We have the better example, i have heard also the F1 races are going also to reborn on there, isn't it F103RM is releasing to beat other brands ones?

If you say is doubtly to have this car, is just still early to conclude, we have also to see which more option parts will they announce in further moments.

EVO5 uses 'standard' spur-gears which are widely available in any shop selling RC-cars... (TT-01 has its own standard)

For example I use in my car a 48dpi 72T spur gear (48dpi = tooth module => this one is not compatible with Tamiyas own tooth module and pinions of the same module are required as well).

If you want to replace broken spur gear with exact similar one go for Tamiya #50978 (includes both 90T and 96T).

Default Evo5 conversation into a Evo5MS

Hy there!

With the first two pictures of the Evo5MS from the Hobbyshow, i think that a conversation of the Evo5 into an Evo5MS shold be possible.

The things needed will be:

Topdeck, Motormount, steering posts and bridge, and the new aluminium spur gear housing with the small block wich covers the shaft (you can see on the pic).

This will be all, when the holes from the lowerdeck are the same from motor mount and steering posts.

Maybe the thikness of it is a bit thinner. The standars Evo5 Deck i think is a 2,5mm one. Maybee the new is 2,25 or 2mm? in this case it will cost more.

The question is, if the upgrade of an Evo5 will pay of in a better laptime/- handling of the car?ures

Another thing i have seen already that there are shims under the steering link where the steering rods are mounted. That means another ackerman.

I never played around yet with these at my car. hm i think i should !!

Whats your opinion to my thinkings?

Greetings from Austria
