I know for myself I'm OK with these plastic fantastic on-road cars. I don't race competitively. When I get them out to race with friends it's in less than well manicured parking lots. I don't need or want a pretty carbon fiber chassis dragging on the uneven asphalt or cinders.
simple, Nerobro and Mitamiya like this.

Agreed, for parking lot usage, the base kit will do the job. However, i think the “pro” trim is still necessary because it comes with cvds, blue bullstuds and most importantly, trf dampers. The plastic cva shocks are dust magnets although they dont leak whereas the dog bones seperate under heavy crashes. Oh, dont forget the aluminum wheel clamps, i dont want to have a wheel that is over tighten because of a missing dowel pin.


With that said, i understand the appeal of r or trf kits. After all, most of us want some bling in our chassis and Tamiya still has the best Anodizing color in business IMO.

Read up on the past 11 pages. Man there are lots of people that dislike Tamiya.

What have the rest of the brands done.. well for the past decade they have moved the motor around, 1mm back, 1mm inward, another mm back another mm inward.. and then last year they did something revolutionary.. they moved it to the centre.. all to get us to buy a new kit. Suddenly my TA05 became relevant again 🤣 needs a little dusting.

I think this is the best design they have come up with in a very long time. Is it over engineered, of course it is but at least they experiment and try different things. This has been their new trend since the TA07.

In 1 post it will handle equivalently to a TT02.. or motor will below 21.5 will be questionable for drive train.

The poor TT02 gets a bad rap.. yes the base kit has plastic parts in important areas like the centre prop shaft. For a little bit more however you can pick up the TT02-S and you can embarrass quite a few drivers of formerly orange / now black with it.. I’ve done in USGT and it was fun! That was way before they released an oil diff for it. 🧐

This chassis will have a lot of uses. Throw on CVD, TRF shocks I could see it easily in USGT, 17.5.

I could also see bashers using this for speed runs.. that chassis is so low down it will sleep right through the wind.

👍 Tamiya

Really doubt the base model will be expensive, or the R model being 400 USD. Tamiya MSRP is always some ridiculous number, but it's usually sold way lower. On rcmart the old TA07R, TB04R were all around 300 USD which is pretty good considering they are fully hopped up.

Agree.. Tamiya MSRP is always high. After their failed attempt at implementing an MAP; domestic shops are back to selling them 30-40% off of MSRP. My guess would be that you can pick one up around $200, maybe even under

I'm still waiting for the manual to be posted so I can see what the motor mount looks like and how adjustable it is.

Isn't the motor mount based on the tb05 ?

I don't know it does say that it uses the TB-05 gear diffs and it says this under a pic of the motor area:
"A brushless motor is recommended, and separately sold pinion gears can be used for gear ratios between 7.50 and 5.25:1"
I don't know if that means it has fixed adjustment areas or if its open. Plus will it have the ability to use 64P gears.

I have a tb05 in front of me motor mount looks almost exactly like the Tc-01 even the plastic covers seem to have the screws in the same area, that is why I am assuming it is based on it or at least shares parts in common

I’m hoping this is a mistake. I checked the shipping and gave a $100 price.

With all the problems with shipping from China right now, they aren't offering the cheaper options. So you'd get your item really fast, but pay for it...
