I remember Fred saying that the bulkheads should be interchangable to the STD. TA05.

I am really excited about the IFS. I would love to see TC's running realistic bodies like the one it will come with.

Seeing that TA05MS sitting on top of that sheet that shows the differences between it, and the original TA05 drive train was really nice. The only question is whether or not they've improved on the TA05's excellent performance, or screwed up a good thing.

This is unfortunate, they are a good company with a good racing history, but no new TC's in a few years, minimal race presence and new drift bodies seem to be their new company direction. They have the look of a company that is winding their business down to be sold or taken over.

Talking

In the kyosho thread, someone posted pics of 2 versions of the Kyosho Tf-5 Stallion. One is a Masami hirosaka version, and the other is the "Shin" version...is this true? Can anyone confirm this? Why is kyosho making a Masami version of the Stallion? Could it be that Masami has left Yokomo?

It is not Masami but Masaaki Hirosaka which is Masami's father. He does a lot of his own perfromance parts now aftermarket and I do not know f this is an actual Kyosho item or simply an aftermarket version of their car. Think Brabus Mercedes, or Saleen Mustang

Looks like there are 2 cars for me the TA05MS and that HotBodies Cyclone 12, I was going to get a TA05S but the MS looks to have it beat. I figured it wouldnt be long befor HB entered the 1/12 ring, with drivers like Hara and Moore, there is sure to be a purple edition
