TAMIYA is the brand of many of our lives, right guys???

Cheers,
Yes i've been suffering from this virus/addiction and I love it. Like I already said this FF03 chassis looks just great. If this chassis is released in Europe I will take the pro version to my local race track. Thanks to OSherman we do know the probable release date . That will be somewhere in June( this year??) so I'm saving my money for june to buy 2 pro versions and one Honda version.

Wait till you driven a M-chassis FWD minis... They're so FUN & EASY to drive... I doubt the FWD can beat any 4wd that easily... Need to put in lots of hard work & speed in order to beat a 4WD... Most importantly, FWD cars drive like a charm...

I'm also trying and you know what .. I'll probably always keep on dreaming about having all the Tamiya RC vehicles. But the FF03 will be a nice addition for my collection. I liked the FF chassis very much. I used to have a FF01 chassis during the mid and late 90's. Unfortunally I sold it
Like Colt1402 already said" Most importantly, FWD cars drive like a charm... " I couldn't agree more.

So I'll ask the obvious question -- what are the odds of a RWD version?
