Any specs or info on this chassis? Any hobby stores doing pre-orders?

You could preorder from speedtech.

Not much info on tamiyausa
http://www.tamiyausa.com/items/radio...ssis-kit-42277

But looks like a newer chassis and gearbox.

If the price on the Tamiya USA web site is anything to go by, you'd want more than just Tamiya Blue Bling! for $1,053 US, I'd want a gold plated chassis! That's a higher price than buying the current 201, the XR conversion and then the XM conversion!

The pricing on Tamiya USA is MSRP, but it's still a safe bet that the street price here in the US will be $500+.

The kit should be around 40000 street price in Japan when it comes out so you should see it being sold on line for about 400$ +~- overseas

400 I could comprehend, maybe even pick one up as well. This is going to give the rb6 a run for the money!

It must have 12mm hexes all around for me to try it out. Everyone else has standardized.

The rear will use 12mm hexes.. and Yokomo has a 12mm Conversion that's for the BMax that has the same( or similar) front steering knuckle design as the B4/201 that should work just fine some of the Tamiya Guys were using this on there TRF201 when I was on Vacation in Japan... the part from Yokomo just came out so it's a better option vice using the B4 front parts.... I know as well a few people have been using the front end parts from the B5 as well and they work on the TRF201 as well

B5 c-hubs, spindles and axles. I would think rear hexes would come in the kit like the 503.

Can you TRF guys tell Tamiya to wake up and make the front hex an option part.
