No I haven't seen it, and if they were on the car of marc and jilles I think they have done a step backward seeing the ugly result of this euro.
I did this year always the a-main In my local and national championship.
Probably in the modified category it is very competitive, and I think that you run in this category., but in blinky is not the same.
I notice a car too much affected from the temperature condition, in qualifying you can do the best time and than 1 hour later in the final you finish in 10th.
PS
I do not blame the car, if I hadn't loved tamiya I would have changed already my car with an xray (the most competitive and numerous at my local track )

Agree! They have now tried for years with chassis flex and it is not going forward anymore... now it's time too try to find a bigger step. They need to be innovative. Better suspension, better dampers and lower CG and they will have a winner again...

Tamiya have announced a TB04 pro

Features low profile shocks, new suspension geometry with 6 deg caster C hubs so expect to see them on the next TRF

Not sure they are new shocks. These look like the short bodied TRF mini shocks that have been available for a while.

From the CAD picture, shock bodies look the same, but the shaft and top cap are shorter.
Not convinced these will be on the next car though..

More caster is usually better for corners, right?

It takes away initial steering and calm the car, but stabilize it on power
