its better for profits, they're PROs at making money
since time inmemorial, T's idea of "PRO" is what layman would call "CON"
It is usually used on a kitbox that's first of its new-model out the gates
with a mission of soaking up all the freecashflow from early adopters.
TA03F PRO... added only balldiffs and plate chassis vs std kit tub.
And the plates were only FRP, not CF (sold separately)!
Later reborn as the TA03F PRO Jun and TA03F DriftSpec
neither of which had as many alloy bits like TA03R TRF.
TA04 PRO... again this only added balldiffs and FRP plates.
Everything else including CVDs, lightweight diff parts, proper TRF shocks,
low-drag belts, reinforced gearcases, reinforced knuckles, reinforced arms,
CF plates in either black or SSG, alloy hingepin blocks, race front suspension,
CF shock towers, finned motor mount, CF spur mount, hardened layshaft,
centre & front oneway diffs.... $350 base kit, $900 in options...
Which brought it up to level of $400 TA04R or $500 TA04TRF.
TA05... ahh T got smarter, they knew fans were onto their PRO scheme.
So the 1st TA05 was called the "Porsche 934RSR Anniversary".
And for a 2nd bite at the cherry, that begat the TA05MS.
scam then moved onto smaller cars...
still no TRFs, no CVDs, no balldiff.
in hindsight... TA06 PRO isn't that bad a deal.
Its decently priced and you now get TRFs ($50) and 417-spec CVDs ($60).
The low-fric grey ballcups aren't widely supplied in non-TRF kits either
so that's another $10 value; could've added the grey bits for the TRFs too.
There's a few whingers about posidrive vs hex head screws
but after those nice shiny bronze hexes they supplied in TA05VDF kit,
they're buttersoft and you'll easily strip their heads unless you had good tools.
They ain't much hardier than their blue aluminium or bright Ti screws.
