Sounds good....
Seems like the latest drivetrain tricks, coupled with new bulkheads... my guess is that the motor mount and rear bulkheads will be seperate pieces.

and 5x10 bearings.... finally!!!! :P

Amen to that!
Hopefully they wise up and increase the bearing to bearing spacing as well. Having 2 bearings seperated by 2 mm is idiotic.

the 5x11 on the old suspension was VERY durable. then they switched to the 5x9. and those bearings got beat up very quickly.

so.... happy medium. 5x10

Actually, this picture was already posted by our host:

R/C Tech LIVE at the 2005 Reedy Race of Champions @ Tamiya USA

So, this must not be it. Darn it, I can't keep track of all the changes to the 415.

Default Tech-Racing designed 416??????

If any of you know how Tamiya does business, you know they don't design (ALL)their cars they have Tech-Racing design and engineering of some of their cars. So, I went to Tech-racing web site and found a chassis that is coinsidentally 2.5mm lower and 2mm upper deck. It has an 18 tooth center pulley. The upper deck is lowered and the motor bulkheads are redesigned for this. It's called the MY-07. Here are some pictures and imagine it being blue and with less machining on the chassis to keep costs down. But if I was a guessing man it will be similar to this. Again this is just an educated guess!

thats not entirely true. it is true that the 415 series was developed with tech racing, however, the TB Evo series, and ta05, ta04, etc series cars was developed in-house.

but your point is well taken
