The problem was that the Bevel gears inside the gearboxes kept slipping and stripping, but you wouldn't even notice it, its beacause there is so much torsen binding. When you want to rebuild your diffs on the Evo 3 its like,

I think the reason that tamiya has two version of car coming out simply becuase they have two team that are in charge of two different type of the car.

The belt drive car was built with the help of tech-racing.

At same time, Hara (of taimya) is developing/improving the EVo series cars. Remeber that race at Thailand? While everyone from Tamiya is driving the TRF415, Hara is still driving a Evo3 (or was he?).

Two new cars in a year really isn't that bad. It's just a lot of $$$ for those who want them all....

Anyone know if Tamiya dictates what car their team drivers run. Surikarn has his own kit, yet last I saw, he's driving a 415. If this next car is a shaft, will they have a choice to run shaft or belt?

That'd be cool if it was a variable belt/shaft car. But the motor mounting would be all weird.

Why can't everybody see the more obvious new car TA05 (street version of the 415)? In Japan no one has the problem with the stripping diffgear anymore since they all use Techracing aftermarket axle with outdrives (Asso style). So why release an EvoIV of an otherwise nearly perfect car?

My 2 cents worth

That would be why tamiya have produced a new mould for the one way gear then, i have seen a few of them and there is a lot more matrerial around the rear of the gear but it has not 100% cured the problem. There is a new evo 5 coming out prob within 6 months of the reliese of the 415. Rick

Hi Rick,

Had any glitches lately like you did at Snetterton last september?

You'll probably mean an Tb01Evo4 instead of an Evo5. Nevertheless it will be an TA05 that is comming out about 2 months after the release of the 415. Give John W a ring, maybe he'll know more.

Have a miniture version of the CVT transmissions used on some road cars?

That would be nice, but I guess highly complicated like the gearboxes on early 80s Tamiya Hiluxes.
