I think it's closer to $300.00 for the TRF version

Cool avatar by the way

Peter,
I guess simply put I like the way the graphite one's look. However I play around with the shock locations and roll centers allot and the plastic just wears out quicker for me. I really havn't had a problem with the shock towers moving but now that I have said that I might have jinxed myself. I hope to make it out for the North American finals this year. I have qualified for the last 5 years its about time I make the trip. I mostly run on carpet so that is why I like the high front down force of the altezza but for some reason the corvette is working well with the way I have the car setup right now. Most of the serious gt2 racers do use the modena I just like to be different and prove that other things do work. How are you guys gearing for gt3 with a medium size track?

Kingz out here we are running the Type-S still alot of people liked it down at Nats gearing is 39/120 give or take a tooth a 6.55

24D is about the same Joven did well with the 'Vette out at TA but ran the Modena and NSX in Japan

I have not used the new NSX but want to I liked the Modena and also the Skyline over the Vette and Altezza

Hope to see you down there this year a new face for the Sconsin guys. Hopefully you a better looking than that Gary guy and anything is better than Hageman

Dan

I don't see the point of the ta04 trf. If you are going to go that rought you might as well get a 414 or evo. You are going to have to run it in gt1 only anyways. I do like the adjustable arm mounts like the 414. After seeing that I guess the worlds sway bar will mount on the 04r hmmmmmmmmmmm.

Marty bought all the old car kits he could get his hands on. They came with the good silver cans he now has a stock pile of them and I don't care what you do to the new ones you can't get them to preform like the old ones. Its damn VOODOO with those stinking motors I wish Tamiya would do handouts at the tcs races I would even pay for the motor gladly to have a fair chance at some of the sealed motor classes.
