Anyway.....

Based on my information the hop-up parts should be released the same time as the kit. I'm looking forward to seeing our sample in the upcoming weeks.

like your signature... and you're already a victim of their marketing plan

anyway, if it share some parts with TA05, it shouldn't be too long before we see TB-03R i'd say 6 months to 1 year time.

other than that... it sure looks good and i'm always fond of shaft driven cars to race in 23T stock class.

hi doddy,
its been a long while....tb03 will use 416 susp setup & evo 5 drivetrain...perfect for 23t use.

yo Alan, been very long. i am no longer staying in the little red dot. how's things there. i'm looking forward for TB03 to arrive then i might want to use it for TAC qualifying we'll see

if it uses 416 and evo5 parts then it can be hopped up straight away... more $$$ to spend!!

i like the look of it so far!

uggg... Looks like another Tamiya Kit I'll have to buy. It looks great! Looks like an IFS chassis with a EVO-5 drive train. Glad they went with the sectioned drive-shaft(evo5 style) and we still have a protection on the gears. Looks like my new outdoor racer! Looks like this chassis will address all the issues in the Tb-02 chassis (i.e. stripped bevels, fixed gear sets, etc..)

Cheers!

I try to stay away from Tamiya cars (because my xray works so well), but this car is different enough to give it a try. I think I will wait until the R version comes out.

It looks like the Aluminum TA05-IFS Rocker Arm Set will fit the TB-03(can anyone confirm??). I suspect a number of parts from the ta-05 IFS and evo-5 will fit the TB-03. Hopefully this is the case as it will make my hop-ups cheaper since I already have most of the parts.
