well, as all your suspension and shocks will fit directly onto the TA05, then spares is kept down to a minimum, and the TA05 is such a sweet car to drive and mucho cheap...

i would go for the TA05 as it's the best from stock car i evr used before and the set up is much easier then other cars that i hav seen.
not to forget some of the parts from the evoIV can be used on TA05 as well..so tat's a save in money..

let me just say that you wont believe how easy this thing is to drive out of the box. Then , with a little set-up based on your driving, this thing sure keeps up with the best of them! since you are driving an Evo IV, i say go TA05 all the way!!!!! just my 2 cents.

Listen to this person. He's won the last three club races we race on with an almost stock TA05, except for TRF shocks, swaybars and a center one way. I'd bet he'd do just as well with everything stock.

If you don't want to buy hop-ups buy the PRO4.
If you want to tranfer some of your EVO parts buy the TA05.

Can you even compare the 2? It's like talking about apples and oranges. One is a full blown pro race car the other is a budget minded driveway car.
