I don't think you can. It has been discontinued. I'm fairly certain you can only get the RTR TC4.

I was looking for one not to long ago, never had any luck, I noticed that most parts for it (ft carbon shock towers, chassis, upper chassis etc.) are all discontinued and 3 Racing and Yeah Racing etc. no longer make carbon parts for it either. There is a company (BMI etc.) that make a carbon kit for it but is like $150 but I don't think it is really worth it. I you are after a shaft drive tourer look at the Tamiya EVO 5 MS (that is what I ended up getting) or the Kyosho TF5 Shaft.

Default FT TC4 NIB

I think Hub Hobby in Little Canada, Minnesota has one in their locked display case on the west side of the store.

Call em up dude.

What is the big differences between the TB EVO 5 and the TB-03 kit. I am just planning on ripping around the street and culdasac at my house not planning to race. I want to keep the cost down but also get a quality product. I am told get a shaft drive for the rocks and stuff but there really aren't many shaft drives anymore. What is the best option and best bang for the buck?

TB03 would be a better option then, much cheaper. What is your budget, you can get a TB03 kit for around $145 - http://www.super-rc.com/index.php?cPath=21_22_45 Would much recommend the TB03 over the TT01.
Don't here of to many people snapping belts etc. with rocks/debris, I personally use shaft drives as less maintaince means more fun. If you are wanting Ready to Run then you could look at the Kyosho TF5 RTR - http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...-6-w-Novak-ESC & http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...us-w-Novac-ESC
