Yes with saddles you can get them in close, I was referring to the Pro 3 specifically when I stated widely spaced. That chassis has them over 1/2in or more apart.

I am considering of buying a new TC car it's going to be a HB platform but i was thinking about the TCXX and now with the Pro5 being announced i don't know which one to buy.One other problem I have is that in my country Bulgaria the season is starting in 3 weeks in which there is no time to buy a new car, set it up and test it.That being said I'm probably going for the TCXX and if anyone knows a debut date for the new car, please let me know!

we will see the new car at the worlds. It will most like take a few months until we see kits in stores. TCXX is still a beast on asphalt out of the box. On carpet you will need the option chassis and a few parts.
The new 2014 upgrade pack I will testing and racing at the IIC. second race ever on carpet. woot! woot!

I would hope hope the whole team is running it. It wont look too good if they arent confident enough in there new design not to be running it 100%.

I could only see one option that it makes sense to run 2 platforms. The PRO5 is shaft drive and they are going to promote both platforms simaltaniously.

Now where are those dang pics!!! Its already past 5pm in Japan. Guess somebody is pulling an all nighter.

Thats a horrible pic. But if thats the layout... boooooo doesnt look very innovative. Need some better shots, but still dissapointing.

Maybe its just the new name for the TCXX that will come with the updates. They know they have a negative rep right now. Just re-brand the same stuff under a new name and bam new car.
