Default Tamiya TB-02 vs. TA-04

TB-02 or TA-04? Which do you think would be this years GT2 or GT3 car of choice? Since the TB-02 is new, I would imagine that the TA-04 is still doing very well. Just wondering since a few people have it [tb-02]now and would be able to compare the two tub chassis.

jury is still out on the TB-02.. some of the A-main guys from last years TCS Nats seem to be sticking to their 04s for GT2.

too much flex in the TB-02 for GT2... Madjack probably has the right idea in using it for GT3.

not that im an A-main threat.. but im sticking to my TA04-TRF SS until Tamiya comes out with a graphite tub.

Honestly,its only a matter of time. Once everyone gets a setup on the car it will be fast. {cant really transfer the evo3 setup and expect it to be dialed} Nanako ran one and it was fast for its first day out @ tcs. I drove his car and thought it was really good. Good enough for me to trade Him his fully loaded tb02 for that pile that Tamiya gave me for winning mini. What was Nanako on that day for him to consider trading me? tt01 for a tb02 surikarn? hehe.

People run these cars for tcs series races usually or club races that include tcs classes.Not higher level racing.The Ta04 has been around for awhile.Of coarse it will be fast.But I think the Tb02 will be just as fast and suit some peoples driving style better. Call me Sipaboy!
