It would also be cool if the TRF420 also came in a black version like other TAMIYA kits in the past

There are a few kits that do this as well. The Pro 5 comes to mind and the VBC cars. Not sure what the advantage is, if there is one.

I just hope parts aren't scarce and third parties make parts/hopups for the car.

As long as Tamiya is using five digits for 420 I'd say spares should be easier to find than 419X/XR. I don't mind the chassis not being mid-motor what I do have problem with is have little to no track time.

Should make the parts green instead of blue. Cannabis edition.
