New smaller hub carrier and steering knuckle. This a new material Tamiya has developed which is a lot stiffer, and this allow them to make the parts smaller to save weight

These are the new front and rear A-arms (again using the same new stiffer material). The biggest feature of the arms is that they are reversable. Two holes on one side and 3 holes on the other side, and according to the designer, they change the leverage by 5% increments so you can really fine tune the car.

Seems to me the oneway is still the same as the one from the EVO3.

No problem.
I wonder if they are gonna keep the diffs open though, or if they will use something like the Cuda's.

yea there are covers, they are optional.

this car really does look the piece. im planing on changing cars later this year , this or the 415. which which which!

everypic of this car i see i want it more and more, i think im in love.

what did you mean about the switching on wishbones...5% increments?

looks like the car will throw alot of steering too... cant wait i tell ya.

Only thing i was looking at that could be enhanced. the little plastic bit holding the bevel pinion... why not aliminium? my guess is it will be pinching the bearings... time to get some wet and dry ready

Hi guys, i'm new to this thread and actually this is my first post ever.

Just wanted to say that the Evo4 looks Sweet!! but it seems to have "crappier" standard parts than the first Evo 3 eg. no alloy servo mount and no anti-roll bar set.

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!
