- So unpopular like TF5 Shin and Avid. Even for japanese or european cars are so difficult to find parts, how could i support with UK one which i never seen before?

Buyable, guys!
Hope RC Square or other aftermarket manuf. could release option parts for it, as well for 415, ex: alu upright, knuckle and hub carrier something like these.

All this criticism on overweight cars such as the MI3 and Serpents S400.

The BRCA have raised the weight to 1425g in 5 cell mod anyway instead of 1350g.

The races of my town have no weight limit and it's compulsory 6 cells. That's why mostly people choose japanese instead of EU cars. Anyway, one pilot of my town have choosen MI3 and told me not only in case of the design and easily for maintenance, but also is little lighter than his previous Xray.
Then my favourite is TRF416, not in case of his undurable and lighty material, mainly on his design, like the T2'008 "lightweight version". But his price is really fair, maybe this is the reason Tamiya will change chassis version on every quarter.

As i said before, mre msxx is useless due 416 is almost release.
There's rumour of new HB chassis will show on JMRCA Super expert class.
Maybe these 2 brands are rivalizing for next year.
Stay tuned

For me is the Evo5 a fine ride. My tarmac and carpet setup, works very well, and the only weakpoint in the package is me ;-)

But maybe i also swap to a 416 in a year, because it looks dam good.
