your wrong

Need to look closer....

Top deck longer (with better fit for bigger lipos), Rear bulkhead is now split, F&R Bulkheads are now the same width apart, all chassis parts are mounted symetrically about the cars centre line. All these changes are aimed at improving the flex characteristics of the car.
Motor has been moved further back in the car to aid traction
New diff and centre pulleys (both bigger)
Improved diff (bigger rings, more balls, in-car adjustment easier)
Revised steering system
New (larger) hub bearings (1050 sized rather than 950).

Plus I'm sure numerous other improvements yet to be seen

Regards
Ed

Look guys, i found this site, check it out:http://www.modify.com.tw/products_e.html
They made spool before for TRF415, if Tamiya did not release yet or release but with limited quantities for TRF416, as happened with MRE, then we should try with this company, they make a lot of cool stuff with high qualities.
Look, if we enquiry them to make many, they should sell us with cheaper price. But the problem is if they could understand the order, we should instruct them with detailed measurements. As i know they shouldn't understand so much about RC kinds, they are just metal manufacturers.
Well, let's just thinking about that.

What shock oils do you guys usually use in your Tamiya cars? I'm trying to get a feel for what I need to get to gear up for the Tamiya way.

For asphalt - anywhere from 30-40 AE using the 3 hole pistons
For foam tires on carpet - from 40-60 AE using the 2 hole pistons

A lot of people are using the Tamiya oil, but it's a little hard to get a hold of.

Well that's very exciting to see. Any chance you could tell us what parts carry over? Maybe the toe blocks, for example?
