Hi Guys,

I'll be on the phone with Tamiya tomorrow to find out when and how much the TRF415 will be. I personally don't see it costing more than what we sold the Surikarn for ($369.99) since the 415 looks to be a regular production kit (hence the part number starting with "5") As soon as I find out more info, we'll start a pre-order on our website

Looks like Tamiya made some changes for the production car:

-Steel srews
-Front center body mount
-Carbon rear uprights
-Black diff
-Normal height lightweight servo mounts

it appears that they also got away from the vertical ball stud rear hubs (like yok,losi,kyo).

it sure is a pretty sight, though.

I hope the cost will fall reflecting on the fact that it is not a fully hopped up kit like a Evo 3 S or a 414 WCR. I will cancel my preorder if the price does not drop below the 59000 yen or whatever it was on pre order from Rainbow ten. Rick

I expect the price to be close to the Pro4, so probably around 300 USD. This is if you buy it in HK of course.
