1st place at the 2002 reedy race of thailand in stock

1st place at the 2002 reedy race of thailand in mod.


that isnt bad.

now list all the major races losi and david SPASHETT have won with the xxx-s.
see my point.
David Spashett is a multiple world champion in 1/12, pro 10 and 1/10 touring i think thats qualification enough he is multiple european champion in 1/12 and has won the BRCA touring champs this season with his xxx's, i cannot help it if no bigs teams go to the races in the far east to give Surikarn a race.

Yeah I know what you mean Tarnj but we don't know how long they've been developing it for.

it was the first batch used, otherwise Surikarn would have had it before.

Anyway, once the CNC programs are done, it's quite fast to machine parts.

its not so much the machineing i mean

its the research and design, maybe if they spent some more time to make sure and stuff, becasue i have a pretty good feeling later on their will sure to be further development.

bacically just make sure they get it right the first time

But what if they really worked with Tech and Team Atlas, and the 415 is the achievement of this work ?

Right, since Tech has had these cars out... Tamiya just learns from them and designs around it's strong points tossing on an award winning suspension system. Of course it doesn't mean TRF hasn't been testing this car just because they've never raced it at a major event til this past weekend. Testing is testing and is usually done in secret. Look at the B4... the car has been around testing for awhile. The Yokomo SD. Been tested before. Even last year around the time of the Worlds. But who knows. I don't care... I just want the car now!! Would like to have it for TCS next year in March!!!!
