Oh man, I'm so getting this. Definitely gonna run this in 2wd drive, could be a classic new euro truck style class that takes over by storm. Really do dig the independent cantilever suspension. For sure the F1 class is gonna buy the halo for their bodies (hopefully a decent part)

I like the mid-mid motor layout and the double-wishbone upper suspension arms. IFS all the way!

I'm pretty excited on this one. It'll be a good project to upgrade as well. I can foresee a carbon fiber upper/lower suspension arms and side chassis brace upgrade too.

Good ole tamiya is redoing a F201 - unless you pour an extra $200 on it, it won't handle any better than a TT01

Looks like a pretty funky rear gearbox to redirect the rear shaft over the battery pack. Yet another overengineered Tamiya drivetrain.

Chassis is pretty cool, but they can keep the flip flop body.

​​​​​​​You got all of that out of this grainy photo?

​​​​​​​Yeah. It's 4WD and the battery is between the gearbox and the rest of the drivetrain.

It looks like the F201 got a younger TA07 girlfriend, knocked her up and this is the result.

Hopefully we won't be also enjoying the F201 egg-arms that loved to shrapnel at a loud fart.

I'm not sure how that makes it over-engineered. It accommodates a full-size battery and you have to get that power to the front and rear wheels somehow.

I have never been a fan of Tamiya's exoskeleton style chassis and maintenance is likely a PITA like it is on their other cars using this style chassis. It's not clear how you would change gearing or even set gear mesh. The battery tray shows a 2S LiFe 6.6v battery which seems popular in Japan but not anywhere else, but hopefully it can accommodate a shorty 2S Lipo pack. The ESC sitting under the steering link also makes access difficult and in general it seems overly complicated for no reason.

Hmm, I am sold on it since you can fit normal touring car body on it but I wonder if they are going to do what they did with the ta07 and come out with an ms or evo version down the road.
