saddle packs? I think you mean stick packs and some of the rules in japan mandate stick packs for certain classes or somethign like that. saddle packs are the 3x3 configuration used by xray and a few others.

Hi Guys,

I just got off the plane 3 hours ago from Japan (Yes, I went to the show) I will have more detailed information about EVO IV and its features, plus more close up pictures on our website soon. I had a good talk with the Tamiya designers in regards to the features and also the TRF415 vs. EVO IV question

I need to sleep, will post soon!

Steve Wang

honestly, we will very soon...we know the MSRP and the item number and available date so as soon as we confirm it with Tamiya USA, pre-order will start.

I think I'll skip the 415. The Evo4 looks sweet.

and here is one of me and Satoshi San (one of Tamiya Japan's Top driver)

By the way "San" means "Mr." in a formal way, so I'm actually "Steve San" in Japan...lol
