u dont need to send spies into Tamiya to copy their design...it was released like 4 months earlier...
all u have to do is just buy a couple and start the Xerox process..
i do it all the time with assignments and reports
but as an afterthought ...i give credit to Yokomo for some of their innovations regarding the ease of removing many parts such as spur gear and steering arms.
more than once i found it too troublesome(ie i'm too lazy) to remove my beat-up spur gear.

Get a grip guys. Yokomo copying Tamiya. Tamiya copying Associated. Associated copying Tenth Technology. Yes all the cars have a shaft drive but there are differences in design. To an extent. I.e. the multiple camber link positions on the Yokomo c and rear hub carriers. Plus to each his own cause it's your money.

Part number is EV0001 I think, Rainbow Ten usually stock it. I haven't seen it anywhere else yet.

Isaac, you gonna race TCS this July? I'll be up there. Just got back from Hanover. I was up in Laurel last year. Wondering if I should get a set of A's and B's for this July.

As for who copied who, just defending the SD since I have one on the way. I don't think you can stray too far from the typical shaft design. Only soo many ways to do it. At least the Yok has a nicer looking chassis!

Another note, I was told that Brushless motors are now legal in GT1 class. Might end up getting one this summer. Anyone have any pics of them installed on an EVO3?

Kilruf- I would just use the "B" for the TCS race. When it's hot those are the tires to have as you know. I might participate this year. The new GT3 class has me a little interested. That's all about driving in my opinion.

Nothing against who copied who it just that every industry does it. Its just who makes the best design or what you feel is the best buy. Heck I heard Losi may be thinking shaft. Rumor so don't quote me. I thought about the EVO III then I saw the Yokomo! I got a 414M and a TA04R so I was like I'll try the Yokomo.

they may not have stock, if you email them and ask for it they will tell you if it's available.

Tamiya should also be release a carbing fibre version which is in the Surikarn edition of the EVO3.

Have you heard if the alloy parts/chassis and shock towers are coming out as spares?

I heard from Rainbow10 that the diff issue will be solved, and Tamiya may release new parts for the EVO3.

Nothing about the alloy parts and shock towers...

I guess if the demand for these parts are high, Tamiya may produce them in higher quantity.

I just put together my TA04-TRF and interestingly enough it has a new front one way design that looks very much like the evo 3's except being anodize blue and it has an additional metal ring on the opposite side that serves as a support to keep the one way from warping which make me believe that this will be the fix for the EVO 3 one way gear issues.

Also has anyone noticed that the front tends to bind? Is this the problem everyones been talking about? I made a backer plate out of carbon fiber to support the gear (instead of those tiny four screws included) I noticed as I rotate the wheels it was binding at a point -even with new gears. I realigned the front gearbox and it helped a bit, added two .07 washers between the upper two screws on the front gear box cases and not it seems freer.
