I guess we can expect Tamiya to release a full option TRF 415 WCR in November...

I think we'll have to wait and see about that one. I think Hara and his Pro 4 are looking pretty unstopable.

LOLOLOL...I prefer the look of the TRF415 too, but most cars at the hands of Hara are pretty hard to beat.

In Hong Kong it would be at around USD375 (HKD2900) I expect they would go at HKD3000++ for the first time.

This car in the hand of Masami would be impossible to challange.

If you talking about US drivers, how could you even think of the old TC3 winning races in the hand of Barry Baker? Recent Reedy Race in Thailand have even prove him to be the man to beat at the worlds ...still not much poeple buys the old trusted TC3, why?
Looks like all of us are now more logical in making decisions which car is better.. it was completely different story back then when Trinity was all over the hills..

So do we all think that the blue turnbuckles are tamiya's aluminium ones?? I think they look cool but Ti would be nicer, unless they are blue ti but I doubt it

The blue aluminum turnbuckles hold up amazingly well and they are very light. If they do come with the car, I'd stick with them until one of them bends. ONLY then would I consider using the silver Ti ones because Blue is so Bling!

The turnbuckles that are on that car are TI. They are the same look as the TI's that are currently available.

Ti Turnbuckles wiith Steel screws? I don't think that is a combination that Tamiya puts together. The new Turnbuckles from Tamiya that are coming out in colors are made of Aluminum. I like them better because they are still lighter and tough enough.

My only concern is that after 5 months Tamiya will switch to another 500.00 car I love tamiya but they are not consistant when it comes to supporting their new models. I mean will they
discontinue this after 5 or 6 months the EVO3 didn't get enough track time before it was shelfed.
I am really concidering the Pro4, I really want the 415 though.
