Love that movie "Battle Royal". The first time I saw it, I was in Japan at the time.

I bought this one.

Dave is right.

Some people would say two cars are the same becouse they both have dish wheels or the TB Evo III is the same as the TL01 becouse they are both shaft drive.



Look some pages back an then you would have seen this:

The TRF 415 looks a lot like the Tech Racing MY02. The Yokomo MR-4TC is different becouse the front belt is not in the center
and the Atlas YM-34 is different becouse the motor sits flush with the bottom of the chassis and the front is not centered.
To me the Atlas looks a lot better than the Tech Racing but the Tech Racing had some really good results in Japan. I think maybe the centered front one way has something to do with it .
The TRF 415 chassis is milled under the motor like the Yokomo MR-4TC SP YMP. The Corally has nothing to do with it.
See and compare!

The Yokomo MR-4TC SP YMP:




The Atlas YM-34 Type Si:


The Tech Racing MY02R:





The Tamiya TRF 415:







Tamiya wanted to put the weigt more in line like the TB Evo3 and make it as narrow as possible to allow more roll (look how close and thin the right side of the chassis is).
The centered front one way means you can't use a rear diff in front so you need more different parts. Still no countersunk upper deck and sock towers.




So once again for the peolple who are to lazy to look at previous posts:

Tamiya:___ Tech:___ Atlas:___





What I don't understand is why Tamiya didn't copy the Atlas instead of the Tech becouse the motor is more centered and sits lower on the Altlas.

i totally agree...i dont get why they have to stuff the motor more towards the center and not to the side! its dont look good when the motor sticks out!
