The Evo4 comes with gear covers that seal the gear box.

The plastic gear case parts are included but optional for installation. depends on track environment i guess.

Don't lie to yourself.. just be easy on yourself and start saving up... denial is painful.

Damn.. I was aiming for this car myself but gave in and got a Pro4 which I liked even before production started... and now..

Why save? Isn't that what credit cards are for?

It really does look like the EVO IV is a combination of the Yok SD, the Barracudda and the 415 TRF all wrapped up into one mean looking package.

I hope they put out a hopped up version soon after the standard version as those hop up parts alone look expensive.

Really makes me wish I had held off buying the 415 TRF.

Looking at your car collection... you must have wished you hadn't bought the last car very often...

Rod, I just want to know if it's fast on carpet w/foam tires? I'm getting frustrated with Tamiya because they have a TON of fast rubber tire cars. The 415 is fully capable of competing on rubber tires with any car out there. THe EVO3 is as well. Call Fred and tell him Jason said BUILD A DAMN CARPET CAR!!!!!!

Wow, I think I vented a little bit....

Hey Jmoney-man. I believe the revised suspension should help with finding a good setup on carpet...but I'm not sure. I'm also not sure why Tamiya doesn't design carpet cars but my guess is that the majority of tracks in Japan and Asia are asphault/rubber tracks and that's what they usually design and test for. This car looks like it's gonna be dialed....dah, must focus on 415...
