Default Tamiya TRF415 Refin kit update 1

So i guess we all know that there will be another TRF415 i enquired about it today in one of the reputable shops in Japan this is what he said

"About TRF415,We have heard that Tamiya will be refined.The matters that we have known is following.
It uses the latest which was developed for TB Evo4 for the suspension.
It optimizes a geometry in each part with adoption of the reversible suspension arm.
Several kinds of the latest parts are adopted."


Not much info but atleast you know something about it right

Default TRF415 refine kit update 2

According to my source same person as before the main chassis will be 2.5mm the current TRF415 is 3.0mm dont ask why but Tech Racing did this to the MY02 Monster.

Maybe the 3D cut chassis Surikarn used in the LRP master will be the Refine kit chassis, no slots but used 3D cutting for the battery slots. Maybe tamiya is following Tech Racing's steps, there current car the MY02M has a 2.5mm chassis but it does not have any battery slots RECENTLY they released a optional chassis with battery cut out on the chassis but they made it 3mm in thickness. Then again they had contribution on the 415's design

what are your thoughs? ill keep you guys posted other than that it has a whopping price of 850AU++ plus freight charges

Well, go out at get one. There is NOONE I know who has one, aside from Hawker (from QLD). I don't know why, aside from the fact that everyone who wanted a pro-kit would have bought the 415, thinking logically that Tamiya wouldn't release an Evo IV so soon. But...... I will find out at the TCS as to who has one to run. Its not my primary car cause I love racing F1 (), but it's gonna be a blast none the less!!

well, I do...!!

But I'm still in love with EvoIIIs and that's all I've been
playing at TFTR. They run great, everything's been bulletproofed
and don't have much reason to go EvoIV... yet.

How do those SKINNY ARMS like the TFTR boards, btw?
