I had the Evo 6.. I did well with it in VTA until pandemic hit and one of those pesky 7 digit part numbers became hard to find.. so I retired it and went back to the almighty TA05 V2 😉

Will be getting one, for the shelf or the track - either way, but I'll get one. This actually looks like a Madden or FIFA year over year upgrade, but I'll take it...
I'm a sheep, what can I say.

42383 1/10 R/C Chassis Kit TB Evo.8

The TB Evo. series has gained numerous fans since its inception in 2000, and now welcomes a new entry: the TB Evo.8! With numerous advances from the previous generation including TA08 design A-type arms, it promises even further evolution of the series.

About the Model
★Switch between two chassis layouts (Front-mid and Rear-mid) to get your setup just right. ★Carbon fiber lower deck and minimalistic upper decks ensure the chassis has optimal pitch flex. ★Features one-piece bulkhead/damper stay components. ★One-piece designs incorporate king pin and suspension ball function, minimalizing suspension play and improving handling feel. ★A-arm suspension comes with Super Short Big Bore dampers as standard. ★Steering linkage is attached directly to the bulkhead, to mollify effect on chassis roll. ★The front uses a direct coupling with WO universal drive shafts, and the rear has a gear differential with aluminum drive shafts. ★A carbon fiber R/C equipment deck features an optional aluminum center stiffener.

So I'll admit my ignorance. What is going on in this picture? Why does Tamiya have to post all vehicles with this connector (mated to Dean's), even at the highest performance levels? Is this out of tradition, or some strange adherence to a TCS rule?

Its not a Deans, it's the connector they supply with their LiFe battery, and then an adaptor to go to a classic Tamiya connector.

They do this because they are Tamiya and they always do promotional pics with their own electrics in it.

Also bear in mind that most of the people that buy this won't race it, and don't know anything about racing. It will be a nice static model, and these pictures give you an idea of how you can build it with completely unsuitable electrics before you put it on the shelf.

IIRC, removing/modifying a connector on an ESC or battery voids warranty. So they stick to stock cables even when they make pictures of a competition chassis, so customer cannot say that they got the idea from official sources.

Does anyone have a link for the press photo of the Evo 8 with green letters on top and the roller in the middle? I want to make it my laptop background.

Aluminum chassis brace and a vertical top brace, how stiff do they want to make this car? It's got more braces than an Xmaxx!
