Interesting they are coming out with an Evo V, should be interesting to see what it actually looks like. Could be very tempting depending on how it looks.

Notice that it uses mid length LWT suspension arms for more agressive handling. Sounds interesting, unlike tamiya to update the arms this fast. Looks like the Tamiya boys have been very busy indeed, surprising not to see spy pics, like we have seen of the prototype parts on the 415 cars.

"Super Low Friction dampers" - what?

Sounds like they are chucking the crap shocks off the standard Minis and TT01s on it

Interesting to see what they look like, and how hard it is to modify for the 415. I'm surprised Tamiya are still doing a shaft car considering the success they have had with the belt driven 41x cars.

I knew about this car last week, but i was told not to say anything til this week. Was release at the weekend in Paris along with the Lexus SC430 shell on the TA05, the Tam Tech Hornet, and the re-issue Bruiser.

I'm starting to fear this car has some revolutionary design on it. What else is the point making a shaft car? Unless its for drifters and TC4 fans...

Shaft cars are popular in Japan in stock (23t) class. The EvoIV is still a popular car over there.
