Some really good pictures on this site so far for the TRF503 .. looks like we finally have a option for a rear hex wheel in some of the options

It looks amazing, no wonder redrc didn't get any underbody shots of it during the reedy race

It looks production ready so hope it's out soon

I was hoping to upgrade the 511 to 503 spec but looks like it has so many new parts it wouldn't work out

Yeah I've heard and think it has some new geometry.....I like the motor mount looks to be a neck of a lot easier to set mesh and wrench on ....

I'm still disapointed they have not updated the 502

I am surprised it comes with gear diffs. Just when I thought I wasn't buying another car this year.. I am hoping it is way over-priced, that will save me worrying about it.

That answers that... LOL. Thanks for the heads up. That means to me about $800 or so at Amain or Tower. I love the TRF stuff, but that ain't gonna happen until that one cools down big time.

Some other info about the TRF503 what I have been able to find out ..is..

Looks like the front Kick up is double the amount over the 511, the Front carbon shock tower is 2mm taller that the 501x/511... the alloy bulkheads are 20% lighter than the 511..and it looks to be about 7~8mm longer than the 511..

No problem... I'm willing to bet that we will be able to get this kit oversea's for quite a bit less compared to what it will sell for in the states.. especially that the Dollar is doing better against they Yen right now..

With a retail like that, it should be priced around $550-$600! The original TRF511 retailed for about $150 less. Tamiya Retail prices are always astronomical.

It'll be priced around the same as the 511 ...Tamiya distributors always list it high then after release it drops slightly

I'm guessing $450-480
