I'm going with the Skyline body for GT2 or GT3 not sure which class I'm gonna run. Gonna break the TL01 out too, that has my TB02s AMG MB body on it.

I took my time and painted my Legacy body real nice for TCS, kinda bummed its not legal, oh well I'll just have to run it in the GTO class.

The Subaru Impreza IS legal, it's the B4 legacy that's not. The reason I think is that it's pretty close to the lines of the Stratus 2.0 which has better downforce than just about any other Tamiya body. I think there was a concern that it would turn into a field of nothing but B4 Legacy's. I know I would have run one, and most of the other locals here would have too.

Will the EVO3 carbon upper deck fit on a TB-02? The chassis is just too bendy it seems ... if not, what other ways are there to stiffen it up? I have the SSG under plate, but it didn't seem to do much. Sure would be nice if Tamiya would release a graphite tub wouldn't it!

TB-02R should fix that problem

I can't see it being that much stronger ... just those carbon plates to replace the plastic. It really either needs a graphite tub or an upper deck. The tub is so much softer than my MR4-TD SD tub, sad really. I'm a Tamiya guy 100%, but that's a bit of a let down.

If I've seen correctly, doesn't the R still come with dual diffs, plastic upper link mounts, and no delrin diff halves?
