Questions?? RC-Square TA05 Mini conversion kit

Hi for everyone of Minis fan.
In case of our town have new indoor carpet circuit then measuring of going on in 4wd(1/12 TC) minis races and i saw this news.

Could somebody tell me if still has any more news about it: at least if will release or not, if will be then when could be?
In case i believe this news is too much time ago, but until now nothing updated yet, then i am so disappointed.

I am looking for it because is very alike Active A210's design, and i know RC-Square has a bunch of options parts of ta05, and tamiya genuine parts is easy to find. Rather than like Atlas, ABC and Active, are so hard to find parts.

Best regards

As i said before good design and easy to find parts, ta05 has all this condition since RC-Square really release it and there's some HS of my town selling RC-Square kinds, so i believe is easy to buy parts. What i want is like somebody did in TRF416WE, i want to build Mini Ta05 with full of RC-Square aluminium parts, could be nice.

I could say what is going famous in my zone, it's Mini TT01 conversion kit from 3racing, even still don't release yet but there's lot of TT01 guys had pre-order it to convert their cars to Mini, they believe it could be fast in carpet tracks.

About other chassis Atomic chassis is really expensive to be an HK car and I don't think it could have HS to selling enough parts.
Active is the similar kind, i just saw 1 HS sold some chassis kit, then never saw it to sell any parts, i think is due the expensive price of Active kinds and lack of popularity if compared with Tamiya and it has lack of aftermarket option parts as the Atomic could be the same fate.

It interesting me with that design is just more properly to call "Mini TRF416".
It called TA05 Mini conversion kit is just because the diffs and bulkheads, but the knuckles, c-hub and rear hubs are from 416/tb03 ones if is followed from the drawings.
And look the motor position could be move back, not like ta05 in the middle.
Could be astonishing!

Could anybody which buy the August of RC Magazine Japan scan to show me the page about the Square TA05 mini conversion, please?
In Japan have announced the conversion kit will release in next month.

Cool

Well finally i got 1 photo from a japanese blog.
I think this is not final version, just test version.
I guess maybe this conversion kit worth at least 250 dollars, is not so worthy if compared with Atomic VMII or Active A210SS, but it still has its own interesting at least in its nice design then Tamiya has always enough parts for the TA05 diffs and shocks in any HS, if compared with Atomic and Active.
Don't hesitate to make any comment about it, please?

Best regards
