so when will the MRE version be released..
we all know the MRE will be out soon after the initial release.
and then after that the MSX version etc.

the 416 might be worth trying out..

This car looks like the replica of coming soon Xray, it should be more popular than Cyclone on the market, i guess.
Maybe HB have to start thinking for another new chassis or new version of Cyclone, something like that to rivalize with Tamiya.
I am not sure if i will purchase 416 or another chassis, due i still staying in stock class and this 416 is designed more for modified race.
The worse kind it's Tamiya stopped to release high end shaft drive TC definitely.

Is it just me, or do the (45mm) driveshafts look thicker?
Lot of spacers behind the steering ball joints... looks like 4mm. Deffo a new brace too.
I wonder if were going to get another set of suspension blocks, so that they are easily flipable for the front (bridge blocks won't work with the off centre belt).
New rear diff outdrives to suit the bigger diff rings...


sure I'll spot more soon...
Ed
... And self centering roll bar mounts.

From where did you know that:

This would be a bad message for me, because i love my Evo5 and hope for a n Evo6 comming up...

Yes, if the EVO5 is convenient for serious race, why didn't released so much options parts?
No Spool nor carbon shaft and other else have released from Tamiya or aftermarket as you can see EVO6 it's impossible to come.

Its right what you say, no new parts, is not how Tamiya makes business usualy. Only the lightblue and smoke gearcovers are released.

But lets hope the best, and "impossible" is nothing (hopefully).

I was hoping tamiya would release a plastic tub version of the evo a la tb02. Tub chassis with evo 4 or 5 geometry would be great for parking lot races or bashing/drifting.

That's the point, little shops still sell TB5, due of drift fans love it.

I think evo iv is better suited for drifting as there are more hop ups and compatible parts with other chassis, and feels less fragile. I understand the belt drive is the way of the future, but these evo cars are as good as it gets for shaft drive. If I regularly race on a proper track, Id probably go with a belt setup, but shaft works well for parking lots!

One 540 stock driver with TB4 told me his chassis it's better than TB5 but the best is still TB3, but he gave up to use TB3 due the problems of spare parts. Then he usually goes to A main or go to podium in B main. And it's the only one TB4 in the championship.
