The Awesomatix I have seen running at events in 13.5 boosted run like this and they seem to be doing well. The proof will be in the actual testing. I imagine when they were testing the car they moved to this layout for a reason.

Will there be a front one way for this car? I used to race with one and would like to have one, but it looks like it has a ball diff in the front.

My excitement was diffused when I learned about the MSRP $416.
I need this kit to be sold for less than $200 to avoid needing my CFO and Visa Card to approve the purchase.

The XV-01 PRO had a MSRP of $460 back then. It was then released and sold for $240 at most places.

For $240... I think it will be a fair price. I bought a TRF101 for $270 and feel it was well spent because of the TRF quality. Mostly aluminum or carbon fiber parts. Minimal plastic. My excitement is revived for the prospect of this kit.

As a tried and true TB-03 fan, I was looking forward to the release of the TB-04. Albeit, I was not aware of what this rig might look like or what changes to suspension geometry, balance, adjustments, etc. The TB-03 has been fairly dominant for GT-3 in the past couple years, and the interest in the chassis as seemed to grow. I recall people telling me to scrap my TB-03 in favor of the TA-05. I had two '05s and have since sold them, as the shaft drive (IMO) is a better choice.

As I reviewed the TB-04 CAD drawings, the spoiler here is the addition of one more bevel gear set in the driveline. This this the weakness of the driveline and now there is one more set to shim up correctly. Not that this is hard to do, but the added friction and drag will add to reduced speed (or power loss).

The 6 degree caster hub looks pretty good. I have run the 4 degree, and the 2 degree certainly offers more steering so the 6 degree will provide a little more stability. But, the quickness of 4 or 2 degree caster provides the responsiveness that helps the car get through the technical sections. Maybe I'll keep a 4 degree set on hand to test the responsiveness.

The other update is the shocks. I like this option of being a short stroke but similar volume. This may not change a lot other than the flex of the shock shaft. Less flex potential seems to be a good thing.

Overall, I would certainly like to have one. I think my TB-03 will still be better, but there could be improvements that are not obvious which will translate into quicker lap times. Time will tell. I hope the TB04 is a better hit than the TA-06. If not, the TB-03 and TA-05 will continue to be the chassis of choice.

Just my two cents.

Hi guys would it be safe to assume this could be geared for 17.5 blinky? I think its still between this and the tt02 for me so I am trying to get everything in check before I put in my order.

This chassis is a step above the TT02, which is an entry level chassis...

Setup wise this chassis will be the better choice, this standard chassis has more setup options over a TT-02.
Different suspension mounts can be used, even camber can be adjusted and the suspension is much better as also the alu dampers.

As mentioned above, this will be much easier to get racing than the TT02, I'm really tempted to get one myself if I can sell on a few things.

I was considering getting a Tb03 for silvercan/17.5t bl but now this showed up. I'm going to wait for a tb04 kit that comes with a shell, tires and motor then see which way I go
