I really like the design too. I especially like the fact they retain the easy access to the gears even with the alumnium blukhead. In fact, I wish they will do that with the 415. But having switched from the EVO3 to the 415 I love the fact that the belt drivetrain is bullet proof and I never have to worry about gears. I am sure with the aluminum one-way gear there will be less of a problem but that will just transfer the damage to the bevel gear or the spur gear.

Having said all that, I will probably still get the EVO4 when it comes out--it's just such a nice clean design.

jeff... lets do the same thing with the EvoIV with what we did with the 415. YGPM.

Do you think that center shaft will fit the evo III?

the only thing that is "Subaru Legacy B4" on that body is the stickers... shape of it reminds me of the tried and true Stratus that most people have grown to love... not your typical TAMIYA level of detail body.... IMO

Based on your attitude I'd NEVER reccomend the brand of toilet paper you use...Its all good....

BTW: I have 2 Sratuses...One 2.0 & One Andys for the record...I like the Andys but dislike the newer one..

The body looks interesting and has a very clean flow about it. No unecessary bumps, ridges, flip ups, etc. I'd like to try one and see how it handles.
So would I, If it didn't work for me I'd easily use that as a "shelf queen" body or sell it

I like the body. Looks like it'll have alot of good downforce up front just looking at how it was designed. Has a nice lip on the bottom. And the grill looks like it curves inward then out and onto the hood. Would be nice for Tamiya to introduce a "RACE" body. Of course we all can ASS-U-ME how it will handle.

I'll just be waiting on SpeedTech for this one....

I like the body too, not to mention personally I'd rather drive the Legecy B4 rather than the Stratus (THE rental car).

Ray,

I don't know if your employer will allow you to own this car.

How's it going down there in Central Ill.

When you coming up north for a visit.

Yeah, every time Tamiya releases a new racing chassis.

ay that's the risk you play into when you go tamiya! you should of just gone "pro" it's a lot easier on the pocket.

tamiya's always seem to remind me of a one night stand with the chick you meet at the club, she's hot and all, but when you meet her sister she's even hotter!

sometimes its the other way around.....the great car that was the 414m2 and then comes the evo3......the sister looks great at first but then you find out shes has issues with her one way gears!!
