The odd numbered TA0's tended to be good and the even numbered TA0's tended to be terrible or not so great.

Hope the 08 is a good one!

You are right even with the TB series the 03 was and still very competitive for its age...

Except for TA04 that was better than TA03

I heard from the future.

I thought the standard here was to wait for an actual product announcement or leaked CAD drawing before creating a dedicated vehicle thread.

I had a picture of a couple of Dancing Riders tricked out with RM-01 parts, but I'm damned if I can find them anywhere.

Haha thought the TA07 line was really good- which triggered the buy of an msx.
As for the TB line, I was fan of the TB03 and still own one, but the TB04 never reached my heart, and I sold it quickly.

Interesting! From what we can see on the pictures it looks like the chassis will use the TRF420 suspension, and if my eyes donít trick me, two belts instead of one again.
But most importantly: No tub, no space frame, no upper deck?

Looks like a massive center chassis brace.

Interesting upper arms.

Upper A arms instead of a turnbuckle link (possibly new long arm suspension??) And rear toe adjustable by turnbuckle.

Theres a massive center brace, but that surely can't be enough strength by itself. If it was aluminium, it'd be too expensive for a TA car. I reckon they removed the top deck in the picture.

The new chassis is a dual belt design not single belt like the TA07.
The chassis has rear Active toe suspension
The pulley is forward, but not in the middle of the chassis.
It has TRF420 servo mount and bumper mounts
It is super low profile (SSBB shocks)
The arms are based or from the TC01 chassis.
GRP / Aluminium spine

Might it have the option to move the motor mount and swap front/rear belts for different weight distribution?
Is it the image or does the (bottom) rear belt angel down right when clearing the motor mount?
Also it somehow looks like there are quite large center pulley's or again it must be the image distorting views,,,

Although touched on already I do not see any "backbone" or so which would make is one very flexi design imho.
Shocks look mounted at quite a steep angle...
