Yeah, you're right. The motor on that car is a 13.5T.

I remembered when I bought a Kyosho TF2 back in the day, it came with an aluminum chassis. Looks likes aluminum chassis are making a comeback~!

It looks like there are re-stocking delays in the Asian market for the 418. I wonder if Tamiya is holding off so that they may release an update?

You may be correct. I contacted Banzai Hobby asking when the 418 would be re-stocked as they have them at a very good price. They replied saying the 418 was discontinued. I thought it might be a language issue or misunderstanding, but maybe there will be changes to the car???

I shop from them regularly as well. They told me that they had non eta on restock as well. I just unloaded my 416 and spares.. Guess I will hang on to the $ for now

I just moved to Las Vegas, I should wait and see what the on-racing here is even like before dropping $ on it.. But then the fact that I don't have a carbon fibre and tamiya blue chassis in my stable keeps me up at nights lol

They only do limited runs of the 418, usually the second run is around April/May. I think the 418 is the easiest TRF to drive for a long time, although that can make me a little conservative when racing, my 417's always kept me on my toes and in a way that made me more 'on it' when driving.

I've only run my 418 twice, on carpet, but I walk away with the impression this car is easier to drive and also reacts to setup changes a little better. By no means is it slow though. Maybe Tamiya had the club racer in mind when they developed this kit?

I am just a regular joe club racer. It is a lot of fun and I think people tend to forget this is a hobby and take this stuff way to seriously. Just my opinion.

I really love my 418 and I don't have the budget to chase setup after setup. Just gets to be too crazy sometimes.
