Motor mount forward has been mentioned in the released info.

New material possible.
New internal ratio I think unlikely but possible.
Even if the diff ring gear is enlarged - I think maybe/likely as mentioned earlier - doesn't automatically mean an internal ratio change.

Currently it is 37t for the pulleys, my guess is a move to 39t (like the TRF503) or maybe 40t (like the BD7)

Hoping I can make the trf419 my first high end touring car, having owned many Tamiya bathtub chassis over the years (currently driving a tb04 pro v2). Does Tamiya usually have trouble keeping their trf cars instock around release time? I don't want to miss out

Nah. You're doing the screws up too tight and/or the alloy used is crap (or too thin).

Another possibility is that the chassis holes are not exactly matched up with those in the suspension blocks.

I like very much! The motor mount looks pretty solid, rear diff looks serious.

I like the look of the new separated toe blocks. It will be interesting to see how different that new rear diff is over the current gear diff.

Black rear diff, new Blocks, Motor Mount.

Very boring the old car. Where are the new shoks?
No reason to buy the new 418 X

Kinda surprised they didn't include a black pulley for the spool. They made them at one point in the past. The white doesn't really make much sense anymore.

Car looks... well, a lot like a Yokomo like everybody already said. Guess we'll see.

Gathered a few more photos on the blog... http://kentech.blogs.se/

Regarding the dampers I think you will find that the changes are such that they are not easy to spot from the outside.

Nice looking kit as always

It's just that
You would think that a company that prides itself on their plastic molds (rightly so)
Would have figured out how to make plastic ball cups, with holes in them

I mean, it's the year 2015 and stuff
Come on Blue ....

Car looks nice but the problem is they are always one step behind yokomo now especially when the bd7 2015 comes out. ��

Why is this not a 418X or something? I'm new to TC so maybe I just do not know better, but looking at the pictures and descriptions of the changes, is this really a "new" car.
