Thumbs up Flexiblity

I have a TA07R with the exotek chassis and the HK Lab top plate. I got extra stiffener for the top plate and it helped a lot but I would like to see an aluminum chassis for either model.

I wouldn't wait for it.
Tamiya would rather bring out a TRF420 in autumn this year than supporting an aluminum chassis plate for the 07MS.

Of course there could be a surprise, if Tamiya change their strategy regarding MS cars, but I don't think so.

From past releases of EVO / MS cars from Tamiya, chassis specific option parts were rare, if any, at least off the top of my head.

If anything, it would be for the TRF series first. Which even those took a long time, just look at how long it took for the XR to get it's aluminum chassis.

Like Tom mentioned, I wouldn't wait for one. That's why I jumped on the Donath chassis.

I got to drive one tonight and it handled very well, matched lap times with the 419 also. Beautiful car in person too, top deck reminds me of a Gizmo gz1 which works so that not a bad thing. Really stuck on what chassis to buy between this And the 419 for GT1

Many of you are saying the TA07MS is faster than the 419. I believe on carpet the 419xr has a huge advantage. Itís a much stiffer car over the MS. Which results in more steering. I had to use (4) top deck stiffners, and my hand made chassis stiffner to get the MS to rotate. Got with in a tenth of the fast lap in 17.5 for the day. But the 419xr always matches the fastest lap. Canít wait for asphalt season to hit in California. I think the MS will be a beast on asphalt. But the 419xr has already proven itself.

Whats your guys thoughts?

I use 4 top braces as well and it is stiff, the handling is spot on for me, its a little quicker the 419 for me, I will make a center brace as well and see if it improves more, will also try the normal shocks with the higher shock towers and see if it changes anything.
