shaft drive has found new life in trans am where power rates are reduced either from 4cells or on lipo but w/only a 21.5 power plant. kinda like gt3 of sorts. have to wait and see. when does the R come out?

30g is nice, but i think even tamiya went to weight limits. so it might be moot pt.

R

less weight does have advantages, even in weight restricted races. You have more freedom of using weights to balance out the car. Naturally overweight cars does not have that option, and you can't balance the car without going way over.

Good choice. I ran the R for a while, then jumped over to the IFS conversion to take advantage of the bodies(NSX2007 ftw). Going to try this TB03 out of curiosity, and might switch back to TA05 if things don't go well. There are rumors of a TA06 floating around though...

The absence of a 2nd deck makes it look so flexy

yeah, been out for about a week now.
according to the guys down there, they've beaten the TA05 records already with the TB-03 at their local track(23T class). The potential is there.
As for the pitch flex, there is some, but minimal to affect handling. Very well engineered. The steering has some slop, but that's so they can sell their hop-up option to us later (bastards).

ANy updates on lower range of FDRs? 3.5 is possible for 17.5 use? Internal ratio is pretty high at 2.438.

Default TB-03 at TCS Nats....

i qualified 4th overall in GT2 at the Tamiya TCS North American Finals. but i blew out in the mains. i believe i was the only one in the A-main with a TB-03. the rest were TA05-Rs, and IFS-Rs.

the car is very capable.

Found this on the Tamiya blog:

Future Tamiya RC models

58412 Xanavi Nismo GT-R R35 (TB03 chassis)

What a good looking shell that must be!
