Posted some first info, although most of it is already mentioned by RC Monkey in that article.

Full spare parts support will be the key for this new chassis. Evo 7 is a disaster for this reason. Especially the 7-digit-special parts. Evo 6 you can still buy everthing. MS is a little harder to get special parts. Meanwhile there are shops, which cannibalize Evo 7 full kits and sell each part.

I hope, Tamiya corrects this big mistake.

Hopefully the gearing problem is fixed. 04 can be a much more popular car if the gearing range is more suitable for 17.5 , 21.5 and 25.5.

Also, don't put 7 digit parts all over the car......

TA 07 had an affair with the Evo7 and a new TB is born. Should be smooth, but after last weekend with my TA07, I'm back to liking the belt car after a 9 year departure running only shaft cars. But, I will be taking a serious look at this chassis.

Sexy! I see they moved the motor closer to the front.

I have been loving my TB03. I've made it more of a rally car though, but still the suspension adjustability is just supurb.

I can't wait to see how the tb05 looks up close.i wonder if it will have the option for a center diff!!!!!

There should be multiple mounting options with the motor towards the front or rear.
