What happened? Did Tamiya give up on this car or are they revising it

I wouldn't necessarily trust that info.

Also says the TRF418 is discontinued.....

Your car looked pretty dialed at TCS.

It's not really a big deal. I built my TB04 with 418 arms from the start. Just ordered the 418 arms and uprights from TQ.

not surprised about discontinuing the TB04 and original 418.

Tamyia will sell newer versions with the corrections and add an X or a V to the end.

Same old game from Tamyia.

416 - 416we - 416x
417 - 417x -....
ta05 - ta05ifs - ta05v2
f104 - f104x1 -f104wgp - f104v2
you get the idea.

The new TB04 will come corrected - probably a new motor mount like exotek, they will alter the gear ratio by changing the ring and tooth counts to fix the weird gearing problems, maybe figure out a bracing system so the rear motor mount doesn't flex so much, which can strip spurs. And the chassis is severely tweaked. worst than any of my TA05's.

don't get me wrong. I like the car. Tamiya will gradually fix most of these mistakes.
