If you can stomach the cost, the alloy ones from Square are very nice.

Maybe I was just lucky the first time or unlucky this time.

It's very tempting to go the aftermarket red alloy ones though.

the boxes from square are very much worth the cost, i loved them, and they make shimming the gear box easier.

they now even come in red to match the S EVO!

It is just time to move on and was a personal decision. Sorry I don't want to discuss these matters on a public board for people to read or not read into the change and misunderstand words.
Tamiya was a great company to drive for and I made alot of friends both in and outside of Tamiya.

Tom it was Troy C's car (tamiyracer) he got it for working at Reedy and was going to let me run it until I got my order from Tamiya. Due to the change I had not rec'd mine yet so I gave his back he got a free build out of it, but as we all know building is half the fun.

Kiwikid and Peter,

I was thinking about the ones from Square. Specially now that they are red.

Might wait until after the local TCS round here and see what happens then.

Thanks,
Tony

Default EVO 3 / TRF ??

Just a quick one. Why is the Evo 3 not a TRF kit? does this mean the Tamiya Racing Factory team have had nothing to do with the kits development unlike the TA04 TRF, TRF414 series and F103 TRF etc etc?

On this subject, does anyone know where there's a list of all Tamiya's TRF kits?

Default Scoopitup, lower price on EVO 3 S

Hi everyone, for the bargain hunters!, I just saw at Ultimate Hobbies, the Surikarn is in Stock for only $359.00, even better than SpeedtechRC. They are our local hobby store in Orange County, CA and provide great service. Look at the July Sale!

TRF or not!

As I understood it's like this.

Japan and Asia both independantley are responcible for the development of products.

As rumor goes.
The EVO is a Japan product.

The 414 project, is US.
Mostly when it is US it gets branded TRF.

This keeps an healthy competition, insde the Tamiya Comp.

Pizzadude,
it would seem like that, but actually all the designing is all done in Japan. In one of Tamiya's buildings in Japan there is a floor that is all design, whether it be the box art or actual chassis design. I am not sure but I think TRF designs every chassis, and plans for expansion off of the chassis, for example the Evo 3 to the Surikarn Evo 3.

So in fact the Evo 3 is in a way a TRF kit, think of it like the TC3 and the factory team TC3.

Speaking from logic alone... the Evos are considered "Tamiya catalog items", and have "58xxx" item numbers. The 1st TB Evolution is #58267, TB Evo II is #58284 and Evo III is #58299 - the significance of this is that catalog items are meant to be offered via every Tamiya distributor worldwide.

TRF items however, are usually only offered via some select distributors, not necessarily all. They also never appear in Tamiya's annual catalogs unless they bear 58xxx numbers... eg
58227: TA03R TRF
58243: TA03RS TRF
58258: F103LM TRF

These don't appear in Tamiya catalogs...
49175: TRF414M
49219: TRF414MII
49255: TRF414M World Champ Replica
49278: TA04TRF
49283: TB Evolution III Surikarn Edition

Peter,

Shimming the gearbox? Please share again (I must have missed an earlier post). Just built an EVO III using the Square gearboxes but didn't do any shimming.

Cheers.
