Haha. Good idea. I hope there will be no war at the track.
But Im sure Marc will be superfast with the 415, he really likes this car. And so will be Maezumi. Dont know if its a good idea for Surikarn running the EVO IV. Maybe he wants the newest car or he has to drive this. But some people think the 415 is the perfect car there. :

good thing is.. Tamiya has enough capable drivers and two very capable cars to pull off the "hammer and anvil" technique.

it'd be nice to see surikarn and marc as 1 and 2.

Maybe there's a contract involved. If Surikarn wins with the Evo IV... they will sell a kit under his name. If Maezumi or Marc wins... there will be a kit under their name... heck knowing Tamiya... might as well have two new kits in the near future! A World's Edition Evo IV and a World's Editon 415... Geez, I need to race... I think too much!

Hmm, if Surikarn wins there will be a red anodized car maybe. If Maezumi wins there will be a blue car. What will be if Marc wins....?

Black, gold and red

I heard somewhere there is a new 415ms in the works. When will this be out?

From talking with the Tamiya reps at the Chicago Hobby Expo, they said the 415ms was going to be strictly for running rubber tires. Atleast that is waht they told me.

429 there is a few mods to make it possible to run foam, but to tell you the truth you are better off using a TRF 415 then using the MS edition. The old suspension lends it self better to foam with a few minor changes(roll blocks, Kingpin from the LW suspension)
