They usually charge full retail on kits. You'll see it on ebay for much cheaper.

Depending on what is actually in the kit, I'd say expect between 175-250. I think that's what the 04R was when that car came out

Default TB-02R specs

Quote:
The TB-02R Chassis Kit was developed with the goal of providing an affordable chassis that still had the power to achieve top ranking finishes in Tamiya Grand Prix. Using the basic design of the TB Evolution III gearbox, we have applied the minimum amount of tuning to achieve a versatile and reliable new chassis. The TB-02R is fully adaptable with a wide variety of optional parts, expanding its potential to compete against even the fastest high-end machines.

New Parts
- Uses front and rear upper braces, (bathtub frame is connected by two 2mm carbon plates, strengthening torsional rigidity and lightening weight).
- Uses 2mm thick carbon battery plate, with TB-02R mark.

Standard Features
The TB-02R chassis comes with the following items and features:

* Lightweight reversible suspension.
* Front and rear stabilizers (medium hardness).
* Aluminum motor heat sink (blue).
* Lightweight propeller shaft (blue).
* Tires are a combination of medium narrow type A and molded inner type S.
* Medium TRF damper spring.
* Aluminum wheel nuts (blue).
* Body, motor and pinion not included.
thats taken from: http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=49348

basically.. take a TB-02 now.. add up all the hopups..and add up the new stuff = $250 im guessing.

probably easier for those of us that have a TB02 to just add the stuff... although, with all that LW stuff, braces, etc. might be a better deal. i only hope the platform got stiffer with that upper stuff.

After an hour and 20 minutes of gring and fitting, my drivetrain is nearly perfect. The gearboxes were way out of whack. the gear case would squeez so tightly it would almost lock up the drive train . I have never experianced this with any other tamiya car.

Held it with my own hands... But then again, it might perform differently... (Hopefully for the better!)

The front gearbox is still giving me trouble. I may get another parts tree so I can hope to get atleast one decent gear box case.
