Take a look at Rc Infos previous posts. 39 changes will be included in the new version. I believe they're aiming for release sometime later in the summer. Shame you're not closer; you could come race with us and my E4FS.

Yea I have read almost this whole thread already... I knew all that... The pics come up in a google search too. I was just wondering if there was any "new" info... It's pretty much summer now... Man I wish I was closer to ya... It's pretty hard to find an E4 driver...

Man, as much of a fan of Tamiya products as I am, I just can't get over how the new TA06 resembles the E4. Sadly, I believe the E4 is still a better layout. The TA06 servo location and the way the ESC mounts just looks like carnage waiting to happen. Interesting chassis though but I think I'll stick with the E4. The best of the unknown chassis !!

Amen
The TA06 isn't even near the performance of the E4RS.

I was actually stunned to see Tamiya use the side mounted main belt and the front belt. I understand why they're using the geared drive in back but , for many, that means more things to go wrong.
I truly wish more effort would be made to promote the E4. Everytime I even think about trying something else or going back with my trusty old XXX-S, I look at this chassis, realise how well laid out it is and just how easy it is to work on, and suddenly the idea of changing simply doesn't make sense. It really is a great design.

Didn't mean to make a direct comparison in performance expectations BUt given the similarities in design AND Tamiya's normal chassis evolution process, one can only guess a higher level TA06 might come about. Considering the E4 has been around for awhile....it's just my opinion that it's a better overall design and ahead of it's time apparently.
Dude, whats with the new identity ??? The 'other" Barry White was a long timer on RCTECH.

So, the suspension mounts are totally free to move up/down, the screw is only a "guide" for them. It's a great difference on the rear, where flex is more better this way. I also use plastic rear bulkheads when I need more flex.
Could you post a picture of this? I am thinking of dusting of my E4RS and this sounds like something I would want to do.

Your just 2 days to late with this question.
I traded my second E4RS in for a TRF416X but would also have traded it for a Top Photon.(left car on the pic)
